Scream Factory is a branch of Shout! Factory, dedicated to releasing horror and science-fiction films with cult followings. Scream Factory has released a slate of fan-favorite thrillers from the 1980s, many of which have never been available on Blu-ray before. Each title is presented in anamorphic widescreen, and most are released in a “Collector’s Editions” with new bonus content, archival materials, a collectible cover featuring newly rendered retro-style artwork, a reversible wrap with original theatrical key art and more.[1][2]

Announced on May 31, 2012, the series was launched on September 18, 2012 with special edition DVD and Blu-ray releases of Halloween II and Halloween III: Season of the Witch.[3][4] In February 2015 Scream Factory closed a deal with IFC Midnight, for a few home media releases. The deal includes the Blu-ray releases of The Babadook and Extraterrestrial.[5]

Almost all of Scream Factory's releases will be on Blu-ray. Some will be a Combo Pack of both Blu-ray & DVD and some will be released separately as both. Additionally, some titles will be released as Collector's Editions, indicating a release with all new special features and reversible artwork.
