Right on the heels of Aaron Dries article on the under appreciated Stephen King movies (HERE) -- come your opportunity to own a few of them on Blu Ray.
This is from Dreadcentral:
Three Stephen King movies will be bowing on Blu-ray in the coming months. Starting with the one that I don’t think I’m going too far out on a limb to say is the least anticipated of the trio, Olive Films will give the 1996 King adaptation Thinner a digital upgrade on August 21st. Well, at least as much of an upgrade as one can give to a movie about a fat man who runs over a gypsy while getting a blowjob and then gets cursed to physically waste away unless Joe Mantegna can help him brutalize the gypsies into letting him pack on the pounds once more. Blu-ray extras will include the pride you will experience knowing you actually bought Thinner on Blu-ray.
On September 4th, Image Entertainment will bring Stephen King’s Sleepwalkers to Blu-ray. The 1992 Mick Garris feature written specifically for the big screen by King starred Alice Krieg, Brian Krause, and Madchen Amick in a twisted tale that involved incestuous, vampiric werecats that feed on the life forces of virgins and whose greatest weakness is the scratch of a little kitty. I’ll always remember it for being one of the few films where someone gets fatally stabbed to death with a corn on a cob.
Paramount has just announced that the 1989 adaptation of King’s best seller Pet Sematary will be getting the Blu-ray treatment just in time for Halloween. We'll have more details on the disc specifics when they’re announced - It just better include the music video for The Ramones' awesome theme song.THE FULL DREAD CENTRAL ARTICLE IS HERE.
