Ready to see your personal home video collection grow? Interested in adding the definitive Carrie release to that collection?
We thought so.
Carrie will hit Scream Factory Blu-ray on October 11th, and it’s loaded with appealing bonus supplements. The double disc Collector’s Edition serves as an honorary release of the picture’s 40th anniversary. Don’t be surprised to find that this package features a 4K scan of the original negative in addition to a staggering three three-plus hours of bonus material.
In other words, if you’re big on collecting, and you’ve been waiting for the must-have release of Carrie, you’ll soon be able to add it to your home stash.
According to Entertainment Weekly the package sports “a featurette which revisits the film’s original locations, and new interviews with writer Lawrence D. Cohen, editor Paul Hirsch, actors Piper Laurie, P.J. Soles, Nancy Allen, Betty Buckley, William Katt, Edie McClurg, casting director Harriet B. Helberg, and director of photography Mario Tosi.”
This one should be aesthetically pleasing, and movie buffs should no doubt be immensely satisfied for the planned stockpile of bonus material.
Remember, October 11th is the date.
