Scream Factory has just posted this surprise announcement on their Facebook page:
We're happy to report that we've gone back into our "vaults" and will
be bringing the original 1982 SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE film to Blu-ray for
the first time in early 2014! This will be a brand new HD transfer
taken from the original camera negative. We had many requests for this
and we're pleased to be able to bring this into the Scream family.
As many of you know,
we released this film on DVD back in 2010 along with Parts 2 & 3 as
a part of a "Roger Corman's Cult Classics" collection. For several
factors (mostly financial), we can only bring you the original at this
time on Blu but if sales are solid, we will certainly consider 2 & 3
for the future.
Hopefully this sells well because II is my favorite of the series, if they're able to get Part II out on Blu-ray with some kind of involvement from Atanas Ilitch I'll shit.
