Remastered 'Blacula' Films Finally Coming to Blu-Ray in the U.S. in Feb

nullIt was this

past August when I reported the news that both the 1972 horror blaxploitation

classic "Blacula," and the 1973 sequel "Scream Blacula Scream," were finally coming, remastered, to blu-ray/DVD this month (HERE).

The catch, however,

was that it was coming out only in the U.K., from British video label, Eureka Entertainment, which meant that the discs would be Region B. What that

means is, unless you own a multi-region blu-ray DVD player, viewers here in

States would be unable to watch it (since, by some secret agreement between DVD

player manufacturers and videos labels) domestic DVD players are “locked”

Region A.

But I added

this caveat: There’s a chance that the American video label, Shout Factory’s horror

film specialty label, Scream Factory, might release the "Blacula"

Blu-rays in the States, since Scream Factory has previously released  a number of American International horror

film titles from the 60’s and 70’s, on Blu-ray. So a Region 1 "Blacula"

Blu-ray DVD could be in the works.

Well, guess

what? I was right. Shout Factory announced today that they were going to be releasing

both "Blacula" films on the horror specialty label Scream Factory in February


So is

everyone happy now?
