Earlier today, Scream Factory announced they'll be bringing Paul W.S. Anderson‘s 1997 sci-fi horror film Event Horizon to Collector's Edition Blu-ray this fall.
Special features are still in the works and will be announced at a later date, but Scream Factory revealed they'll be presenting the film with a new 4K scan and they're currently searching any lost footage from the film's gruesome Director's Cut.
"Please note that the date could change as we are still experiencing a domino effect from the COVID situation--which has caused numerous delays for earlier releases in our schedule," the company posted on Facebook. "As you have seen we’ll do our best to keep this date of course, but we’re still in an unprecedented time in which getting access to talent for extras or setting up film transfers are more challenging than they were before. We appreciate your understanding now and in advance and hopefully there will be some stabilization."
Scream Factory adds, "New extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date (Aug timing, and also depending on current events). We can confirm today that we are doing a new 4K scan of the film! As for any much-inquired-about additional footage (in addition to what's be presented on prior releases), we are looking into it as best we can. We welcome any leads you may have alongside our efforts."
Event Horizon will come guaranteed with a slipcover in its first three months of release. The newly commissioned artwork you see pictured comes to us from artist Joel Robinson. This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the original theatrical artwork.
Scream Factory brings Event Horizon to Collector's Edition Blu-ray on September 29th, 2020. Pre-order your copy today!
