Scream Factory To Release The [REC] Collection Blu-ray Set On September 25th!

In 2007, two talented Spanish filmmakers, Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza created a terrifying film that went on to spawn three sequels, an American remake and its sequel. On September 25, 2018, SCREAM FACTORY™ is proud to present THE [REC] COLLECTION 4-Disc Blu-ray set featuring a quadrilogy of terror, including [REC], [REC] 2, [REC] 3: GENESIS, and [REC] 4: APOCALYPSE. A must-have for horror enthusiasts and movie collectors, THE [REC] Collection Blu-ray set includes audio commentary with writers/directors Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza, making-of featurettes, behind-the-scenes footage, outtakes, deleted scenes, trailers, and more! Pre-order is available now at ShoutFactory.com

In the first film, [REC], a TV reporter and her crew are asked to cover a crew of firemen on duty. What seems like a routine story about a night at the fire station soon turns into a nightmare. Trapped inside a quarantined building, the crew must try to survive the terror that rages inside. [REC] 2 picks up minutes after the end of [REC]. The authorities have lost contact with the people trapped inside the quarantined building and chaos reigns. A Special Operations Unit has been tasked with entering the premises … only to discover that this is anything but a straightforward mission. [REC] 3: GENESIS leaves the confines of the quarantined building to follow the wedding of Koldo and Clara. Everything appears to be running smoothly and the bride and groom are enjoying a wonderful day … until some of the guests start showing signs of a strange illness and unleash a torrent of violence. [REC] 4: APOCALYPSE returns focus to Ángela Vidal, the young reporter who has managed to make it out of the building alive.

‘Saved By The Bell: The Complete Collection’ To Be Released This October!

Missing your favorite pals from Bayside High? It’s alright, ’cause you’re SAVED BY THE BELL! On October 2nd, 2018, Shout! Factory invites TV aficionados to a very special class reunion with the 16-disc collector’s release of Saved by the Bell: The Complete Collection, a “Max-ed” out, completist’s DVD set of the iconic and addictive ’90s Saturday morning sitcom. Best of all, it’s available today for pre-order, at Amazon.com!

Set in the fictional town of Palisades, California and in the hallways of Bayside High, the breezy adventures of Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and his friends — Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani-Amber Thiessen), A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez), Jessie Myrtle Spano (Elizabeth Berkley), Lisa Turtle (Lark Voorhies), and Samuel “Screech” Powers (Dustin Diamond) — were a cultural touchstone for a generation of teens, changing teen programming forever and launching the careers of its break-out stars. Now, home audiences can relive the laughter, lessons, and love all over again with this loaded set containing more than 46 incredible hours of Bayside bliss, including every episode from 1988’s “Good Morning, Miss Bliss” which became “Saved By the Bell: The Junior High Years” and the fan-favorite “Saved by the Bell” to “Saved By the Bell: The College Years” and the two feature-length TV movies that followed. The TV DVD archivists at Shout! Factory are hard at work on exclusive bonus features, and they will be announced at a future date.

From 1989 to 1993, for a generation of TV viewers, “Saved by the Bell” was the show that perfectly echoed their lives in middle school and high school. Originally titled “Good Morning, Miss Bliss” with Hayley Mills in the title role, the first thirteen episodes of the series featured Zack, Screech, Lisa and Mr. Belding, and was based at John F. Kennedy Junior High in Indianapolis. Following its cancellation, NBC retooled the show as “Saved by the Bell” and the rest is history…and math, and science, and… And, across 86 glorious episodes, audiences followed the memorable experiences and adventures of Zack and the gang. And, following graduation, Zack, Kelly, Slater and Screech enrolled at California University where the successful franchise could matriculate with the prime-time sitcom, “Saved by the Bell: The College Years”. The series finally wrapped with two feature-length, prime time TV movies, “Hawaiian Style”, which brought the Bayside bunch to the Big Island for a wacky Waikiki adventure and “Wedding in Las Vegas”, which saw the on-again, off-again lovebirds Zack and Kelly make their relationship official on a day the gang will never forget.

From JFK Junior High to Cal U, Miss Bliss to Mr. Belding, Malibu Sands to Hawaii, and dance contests to “dearly beloved”, the Saved by the Bell megaset immortalizes a landmark teen TV show that still resonates with its die-hard fans around the world. Fans, friends, jocks, and nerds –ask not for whom The Bell tolls … it tolls for thee!
