**NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT**
EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC – one of the most infamous horror sequels in history (and that’s an understatement) – will be given the chance to be properly reevaluated in the form of a serious upgrade on Blu-ray this Fall! Here are the early details we have at present time:
• This will be branded as a 2-Disc “Collector’s Edition” that will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date). U.S. and Canada territories (Region A).
• Extras and specs are still in progress and will be announced later in August. However, we can confirm today that we will have a new high-definition transfer of two cuts of the film! (The 117 min version that has been on Blu-ray and DVD before and a shorter, alternate version that was created after the film’s initial release in 1977.) You’ll also be happy to know that we have a brand-new interview with ‘Regan’ herself, actress Linda Blair!
• The newly-commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from the CRP Group (Serial Mom, Drag me to Hell, Dead Ringers). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will the original theatrical poster design.
• The national street date is planned for September 25th. However, if you pre-order now for early shipping directly from us @ https://www.shoutfactory.com/product/exorcist-ii-the-heretic-collector-s-edition?product_id=6832 you will also receive an 18′ x 24″ rolled poster of the newly-commissioned art.
**NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT**
The popular found-footage horror franchise REC is coming to Blu-ray for the first time in the U.S. along with its sequels in one complete collection! Release date is planned for September 25th.
– In the first film, [REC], a TV reporter and her crew are asked to cover a crew of firemen on duty. What seems like a routine story about a night at the fire station soon turns into a nightmare. Trapped inside a quarantined building, the crew must try to survive the terror that rages inside.
– [REC] 2 picks up minutes after the end of [REC]. The authorities have lost contact with the people trapped inside the quarantined building and chaos reigns. A Special Operations Unit has been tasked with entering the premises … only to discover that this is anything but a straightforward mission.
– [REC] 3: GENESIS leaves the confines of the quarantined building to follow the wedding of Koldo and Clara. Everything appears to be running smoothly and the bride and groom are enjoying a wonderful day … until some of the guests start showing signs of a strange illness and unleash a torrent of violence.
– [REC] 4: APOCALYPSE returns focus to Ángela Vidal, the young reporter who has managed to make it out of the building alive. But she hasn’t made it out of the building alone as she carries the seed of the strange infection. She is taken to a provisional quarantine facility: the perfect location for the virus to be reborn.
This is a 4-disc set with each film receiving its own single Blu-ray case. All four will all be housed in a rigid slipcase. Extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date.
Pre-order directly from us we’ll ship it out two weeks early! https://www.shoutfactory.com/product/the-rec-collection…
