Candyman (1992) - Blu-ray

Scream Factory just released the details of its upcoming two-disc blu-ray Deluxe Limited Edition set of the 1992 horror thriller Candyman that stars Virginia Madsen, Xander Berkeley, and Tony Todd.

Unfortunately, the film, written by Clive Barker and directed by Bernard Rose, and its slew of supplemental materials won’t hit store shelves until after the Halloween season on November 20th.

Candyman (1992) - Blu-ray

This gut-wrenching thriller follows a graduate student whose research summons the spirit of the dead! When Helen Lyle hears about Candyman, a slave spirit with a hook hand who is said to haunt a notorious housing project, she thinks she has a new twist for her thesis. Braving the gang-ridden territory to visit the site, Helen arrogantly assumes Candyman can't really exist ... until he appears, igniting a string of terrifying, grisly slayings. But the police don't believe in monsters, and charge Helen with the crimes. And the only one who can set her free is Candyman.

This Deluxe Limited Edition release looks to be a fantastic one chock-full of plenty of new bonus features, NEW audio commentaries, interviews, featurettes, new slipcovers, and two new posters.
