As we've reported
, via a studio press release, June 14th
sees the DVD releases of a pair of double-feature presentations from Elvira's newest version of her most popular TV series: on that day you'll get Elvira's Movie Macabre - Night of the Living Dead / I Eat Your Skin
AND also Elvira's Movie Macabre - The Satanic Rites of Dracula / The Werewolf of Washington
. In that same press release, eOne Entertainment said to expect two more releases soon: "Future DVDs will pair such camp classics as The Terror (starring Boris Karloff and Jack Nicholson) with Eegah!, and Scared to Death (starring Bela Lugosi) with Manster.
Today retailers have forwarded us some advance information from eOne's next pair of releases, and it looks like there's been a slight change from the original plans mentioned above: Scared to Death
has been switched out with The Brain That Wouldn't Die
. So, in short, the two double-feature presentation releases being planned next are now Elvira's Movie Macabre - The Terror / Eegah!
and also Elvira's Movie Macabre - The Brain That Wouldn't Die / The Manster
. Both are scheduled to street on August 16th
, just in time for Halloween.
Like the first couple of titles, the films included are all digitally remastered, and are presented in 1.33:1 full screen video, with English Dolby Digital audio and English subtitles. Cost is a mere $14.98 SRP for each 183-minute release. Below is an early look at the package art, taken from materials made available in a heads-up to retailers. Please keep in mind, however, that this info and artwork did not come directly from eOne Entertainment, so the studio may not yet have finalized things with Elvira herself, and anything could be subject to change. Stay tuned and we'll update you if something different does happen!
