SCREAM & SHOUT! FACTORY'S 2020 RELEASE CALENDAR!


Scream Factory - Shout! Factory - Shout Select Logos!

I've been keeping an annual calendar of Scream / Shout! Factory's new Blu-ray titles since 2016, and it seems like every year they manage to keep upping the ante. Along with another pretty good batch of IFC Midnight titles (PLEDGE, RUST CREEK, THE CLOVEHITCH KILLER) in 2019, Scream Factory released several awesome boxed sets (THE OMEN COLLECTION, THE FLY COLLECTION), and began dipping into the vaults of Universal (THE MOLE PEOPLE, TARANTULA), Paramount (SILVER BULLET), and Warner Bros. (THE DEVIL RIDES OUT, SCARS OF DRACULA)! They also inched closer to owning the entirety of John Carpenter's directorial filmography, and released various collectible figures and limited edition steelbooks! It was definitely a good (but expensive) year to be a Scream/Shout! Factory fan!

This year is looking to be just as pricey, and I'm super excited to see what they release now that they've gained to the catalogs of major studios. The first quarter already looks pretty good (MY BLOODY VALENTINE and APRIL FOOL'S DAY!), but here's hoping they pull out all the stops for the second half of the year, and release some of my favorite Paramount titles that haven't yet made the leap to Region A Blu-ray, like ORCA, THE EXPLORERS, and D.C. CAB!

Also, I've got a gut feeling that they're going to drop a brand new (and complete) FRIDAY THE 13TH boxed set later this year (likely on the week of 11/10/2020 - just in time for this year's final Friday... the 13th!). I have absolutely no proof of this, and could be entirely wrong, but... I just have a hunch... I'll guess we'll find out for sure towards the tail end of the Summer!

In any case, as the year progresses this page will be updated to reflect newly announced titles from Shout! Factory, Shout Select, and Scream Factory! Release dates are subject to change - if you notice any errors or omissions, please contact your friendly neighborhood Vault Master so that I can fix it ASAP!
