New limited edition Blu-ray box set celebrates the legacy of ‘80s genre film studio Empire Pictures
Every horror and cult movie fan who came of age in the 1980s still speaks in hushed tones about the late, great Empire Pictures. Founded by producer and director Charles Band in 1983, the fabled studio and distributor was responsible for a tidal wave of amazing, imaginative and profitable horror, science fiction and fantasy films many of which have become definitive works and high water marks of their respective genres.
Now, as a gift to the legion of rabid Empire fans out there, Band and Full Moon (in collusion with Shout! Factory) will release The Empire Pictures Blu-ray Collection, a massive limited edition collection (only 600 are being produced) featuring 18 films on 15 discs (14 Blu-ray + 1 DVD) packaged in a stunning, sturdy and elegant black collectors box adorned with a collage of original Empire poster art. Inside there will be an exclusive 24-page book as well.
Classic Empire films included in this set are:
METALSTORM (3-D version)
The Empire Pictures Blu-ray Collection ($250 US per unit) will be officially released on May 5th with a pre-sale going live on April 28th. These units will not be sold in stores and can only be purchased at FullMoonDirect.com. Yowza! Empire for life!
