Scream Factory adds another John Carpenter film into the fold with his 1998 fang-baring, western-toned thriller John Carpenter's Vampires. Here are the early details we have a current time to share with you today.
First and foremost, the national street date for North America is September 24th.
This will be presented as a Collector’s Edition and will come guaranteed with a slipcover in its first three months of release. The newly commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from Devon Whitehead (Trick 'r Treat, Valentine, Sleepwalkers). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the original theatrical artwork.
Extras will be announced on a later date. However, Scream Factory can confirm already that we have new interviews with Mr. Carpenter and Sandy King Carpenter.
For those of you who've never seen the film, centers on Jack Crow (James Woods), the leader of Team Crow, a relentless group of mercenary vampire slayers. When Master Vampire Valek (Thomas Ian Griffith) decimates Jack's entire team, Crow and the sole team survivor, Montoya (Daniel Baldwin), set out in pursuit. Breaking all the rules, Crow and Montoya take one of Valek's victims hostage – a beautiful but unlucky prostitute (Sheryl Lee). She is the sole psychic link to Valek and they use her to track down the leader of the undead. As Valek nears the climax of his 600-year search for the Berziers Cross, Jack and the new Team Crow do everything possible to prevent him from possessing the only thing that can grant him and all the vampires the omnipotent power to walk the world in daylight.
