Full details: Scream Factory Blu-ray of Wes Craven’s “SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW”

,

Shout! Factory has done that voodoo that they do so well on Wes Craven’s occult chiller THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW, and the complete Collector’s Edition Blu-ray contents have been revealed.

Shout! releases THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW as part of its Scream Factory line February 23. Craven’s 1988 feature, based on Wade Davis’ non-fiction book about voodoo practices in Haiti, stars Bill Pullman as an anthropologist who travels there to investigate a powder that can allegedly bring dead people back to life, and enters a world of supernatural rites and human evil. The movie, which also stars Cathy Tyson, Zakes Mokae and Paul Winfield, has been given a new 1.85:1 hi-def transfer from the interpositive film element, and is accompanied by these bonus features:

• New audio commentary by Pullman
• New “The Making of THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW” featuring new interviews with Pullman, Davis, director of photography John Lindley and special makeup FX artists Lance Anderson and David Anderson
• Theatrical trailer
• TV spot
• Still gallery

Retail price is $34.93, but you can pre-order it for just $24.93 at Shout!’s website. Those orders will ship two weeks early and come with a limited-edition 18×24” poster featuring the newly commissioned artwork, while supplies last.
