Finally, Horror Heads can add these babies to your collection. Personally, my David Cronenberg collection runs deeper than the Mississippi River and these are more water for the river baby! I can’t freaking wait.

Moreover, Scream Factory is one of the leaders in quality classic-film releasing. Establishing its brand in 2013, a subsidiary of long-running label Shout Factory, Scream Factory is a brilliant outfit. Need proof? Look at the stellar Halloween: The Complete Collection or their 3-disc Army of Darkness set. Needless to say, Scream Factory is brilliant.
