On Halloween, Scream Factory announced that they would be bringing Fred Walton's clever slasher April Fool's Day to Collector's Edition Blu-ray early next year, and today they've revealed the release's cover artwork and a March 24th, 2020 release date.
The company wrote on Facebook, "Before we leave to celebrate Thanksgiving this week, we'll leave you with more information on another upcoming holiday!
Details we have on the upcoming Blu-ray at the moment are as follows:
National street date for North America (Region A) is March 24th.
This is being presented as a Collector’s Edition and will come guaranteed with a slipcover in its first three months of release.
The newly-commissioned "doll-ed" up artwork you see pictured on the left comes to us from artist Yannick Bouchard. (And if you know the film this makes perfect sense) This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the classic original theatrical artwork (pictured on the right).
New extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date but we can confirm today that we have several cast and crew already on board and we plan to load it up as much as possible!"
In the 1986 film, nine college students staying at a friend's remote island mansion begin to fall victim to an unseen murderer over the April Fool's Day weekend.
Pre-orders are now available from Amazon and Scream Factory. The first 500 orders from Scream Factory's site will receive an exclusive limited-edition 18” x 24” rolled poster of the exclusive new illustration.
