Het Amerikaanse Scream Factory heeft al een paar hele mooie edities uitgebracht van John Carpenter films, denk aan Prince of Darkness of Escape From New York. In 2018 zetten zij deze traditie voort door drie nieuwe titels uit te brengen van de meester. Deze zijn Someone’s Watching Me!, In the Mouth of Madness en Memoirs of an Invisible Man. Vooral de eerste en de laatste zijn interessant omdat van de eerste nog geen Blu-ray bestaat en van de laatste een zeer beperkte Franse en Duitse editie. In the Mouth of Madness wordt naar het schijnt een Collector’s Edition, met veel extra’s en natuurlijk nieuw opgepoetst beeld, dus ook die gaat zeer de moeite waard worden. Lees hieronder het gehele bericht van Scream Factory en bekijk ook gelijk het geniale artwork:
From Scream Factory: “A wave of more John Carpenter films comes crashing into Scream Factory on July 24th! Two make their blu-ray debuts and another highly-requested one receives a serious upgrade. Extras will be announced at a later date but here are the details we have at this time…
IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS (1995)
Sutter Cane (Jürgen Prochnow, Dune, The Seventh Sign) is the best-selling author whose newest novel is literally driving readers insane. When he inexplicably vanishes, his publisher (Charlton Heston, Soylent Green, Planet Of The Apes) sends special investigator John Trent (Sam Neill, Daybreakers, Dead Calm) to track him down. Drawn to a town that exists only in Cane’s books, Trent crosses the barrier between fact and fiction and enters a terrifying world from which there is no escape. Inspired by the tales of H.P. Lovecraft, this shocking story is, in the words of its acclaimed director, “horror beyond description!”
• This will be branded as a “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).
• The newly-commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from Joel Robinson (Firestarter, Rabid, Species, Drag Me to Hell). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will the original theatrical poster.
• Extras and specs are still in progress and will be announced at a later date. However, we can confirm today that we will be doing a brand-new film transfer!

SOMEONE’S WATCHING ME (1978)
Los Angeles newcomer Leigh Michaels (Lauren Hutton) moves into a chic high-rise apartment building. She loves the view. So does the Peeping Tom who lives somewhere in the adjacent tower. For Leigh, it’s the beginning of terrors that escalate from anonymous calls and gifts to lights that mysteriously flicker to prove that someone watches every moment of her life. Leigh fights back, matching her tormentor’s obsession with her own relentless drive to uncover his identity. The prey is now predator – and that escalates the stalker’s game to a deadly new level. Someone is watching. Also starring Adrienne Barbeau and Charles Cyphers.

MEMOIRS OF AN INVISIBLE MAN (1992)
The laughs and visual effects are out of sight when Chevy Chase headlines Memoirs of an Invisible Man. Invisibility makes it easier to spy on agents (particularly chief adversary Sam Neill) who’ve put him in his predicament. And he can romance a lovely documentary producer (Daryl Hannah) in a way she’s never “seen” before. John Carpenter directs and Industrial Light and Magic create eye-opening effects as Nick embarks on his manic quest. Seeing is believing!
