According to DVDEmpire, Lionsgate will debut Angel Heart, Cujo, The Monster Squad, My Bloody Valentine (1980), and Frailty onto Blu-ray on November 24th. All appear to be slated to feature 1080p transfers, 5.1 lossless DTS Master Audio tracks, and the supplemental material found of their DVD counterparts.
The only one I'm considering is The Monster Squad since Lionsgate decided to saddle the DVD with a poorly authored transfer (it's interlaced for you fellow techies). Nice to see this film arriving so soon after Night of the Creeps comes to Blu-ray. It'll also be interesting to see how MBV looks, as Paramount's initial DVD actually looks a bit sharper than Lionsgate uncut re-release. It's always great to see flicks such as these come to the format, but why just in time for Thanksgiving, LG?
As an aside, why in the hell does the BD's cover art of Night of the Creeps feature that awful floating head nightmare, compared to the better "retro" cover for the DVD (seen here) picked in Amazon's poll?
