I’ve been told before that I gush a bit too much about Scream Factory, but I can’t help it. As a collector of physical media, I own more of their releases than I can count, and love how they give the royal treatment even to horror films that are quite obscure.

Over the years, Scream Factory has covered lots of John Carpenter films, usually in packed collector’s editions. Now, the company is doing the same for Carpenter’s 1986 cult classic Big Trouble in Little China, starring Kurt Russell as the immortal Jack Burton.

In usual Scream Factory style, this 2-disc Big Trouble in Little China Blu-Ray release will port over all prior extras from the old disc, while adding a bunch more. This includes two new audio commentaries, and a whopping twelve new interviews with cast and crew.

Big Trouble in Little China
