Brace Yourselves: Halloween is Coming

I've got good news and bad news.

First, the good news: many, many classic horror movies are making their Blu-ray debuts in time for Halloween this year. While a few of these are 4K restorations or anniversary releases, the majority of them are getting the high-def treatment for the first time ever.

The bad news: most of them will be hitting the market in a release pattern designed to devastate your bank account.

It's always feast or famine when you're a horror fan. Distributors seem to think the only time of year anyone cares about these movies are in the weeks leading to Halloween, which sometimes forces products to fight for our affection. It's an exciting roster of films this year (Peter Cushing and Christoper Lee appear in the lion's share of them) but I suspect many of us will be holding off until after the holidays to pounce on some of these films.

Here's a sample of what you can expect to hit shelves in the coming weeks. Click on the individual images for title specs and ordering information.
