Blood Red Blu-Ray!

Starz Home Entertainment/Anchor Bay Entertainment will release the first season of Masters Of Horror on Blu-Ray Disc in September.

The release will consist of four BD-50 discs containing all the 15 season 1 episodes in 1080p high definition video. Currently plans are to provide uncompressed PCM 5.1 audio tracks with the release but that may change, depending on the storage availability on the final discs.

The set will also contain some – though not all – of the bonus materials found on the individual DVD releases of the episodes.

In addition to “Masters Of Horror” there will be other Blu-Ray titles from Anchor Bay scheduled for Halloween: John Carpenter’s Halloween, Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead II and George A. Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead and Day Of The Dead, to be released on Blu-Ray some time in September or early October.

Anchor Bay has not yet announced full details and specs on these releases but from what we've been hearing, expect DVD extras to carry over as well as uncompressed audio tracks on these movies. Since anchor Bay is well known for giving fans a treat, I think it is a safe best that these Blu-Ray Discs won't disappoint either. Stay tuned for more details.
