Shout! Factory has announced, via social media, that it’s bringing the collectors edition of Eli Roth’s 2013 cannibal horror film The Green Inferno to its Scream Factory line of horror blu-rays. This new release will include a slipcover and brand-new cover art by Devon Whitehead (below), with the original theatrical poster on the reverse side. Also included is a CD soundtrack of the film’s musical score by composer Manuel Riveiro. For extras, there will be new interviews with Roth and the cast plus all the previously released material from the standard edition release. The rest of the special bonus features will be detailed in March, so stay tuned!
While The Green Inferno won’t be released until Tuesday, April 23rd, it’s now available on preorder for just $28.43 (regular price is $29.99):
The first 700 orders from Shout! Factory will also receive an 18″ x 24″ poster of the new cover art. What’s more, there is a deluxe edition available, which features a slipcover signed by Roth, but these are limited to only 250 copies.
