Three King adaptations are FINALLY coming to Blu-ray.
As spotted over on the Diabolik DVD Facebook page, Warner Home Video will be answering fan prayers by releasing Stephen King’s IT, Salem’s Lot and Cat’s Eye on Blu-ray September 20th, and the discs will all feature brand new HD masters created especially for the hotly-anticipated Blu-ray premieres. According to an ad that Diabolik shared, Salem’s Lot will come equipped with a BRAND NEW commentary track from director Tobe Hooper, though it doesn’t appear that the others will have new features. The films have a SRP of $14.97 apiece.
We recently told you that Stephen King’s IT was getting a special Blu-ray release that was to include a Pennywise t-shirt, and at this time we’re not yet sure if that will be a separate release from the one headed our way on September 20th. If I had to guess, I’d say the t-shirt edition will be an exclusive to a store like Best Buy, while the standard Blu-ray will be available everywhere else.
We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
Stephen King’s IT (1990): In 1960, seven outcast kids known as “The Loser Club” fight an evil demon who poses as a child-killing clown. Thirty years later, they reunite to stop the demon once and for all when it returns to their hometown.
SALEM’S LOT (1979): A novelist and a young horror fan attempt to save a small New England town which has been invaded by vampires.
CAT’S EYE (1985): A stray cat is the linking element of three tales of suspense and horror.
