Scream Factory has been exciting horror fans every Friday by announcing more cult horror titles that they will be releasing on DVD and (possibly) Blu-ray next year. Not a whole lot of excitement this week, though, with their announcement of a pair of early Nineties direct-to-video Scanners sequels.

I’m sure there are a few people out there thrilled to hear that Scanners II: The New Order and Scanners III: The Takeover will be coming to DVD (and possibly Blu-ray) for the first time next year, but the fact that even Scream Factory’s own Facebook announcement begins with an apology for not being able to get the rights to give David Cronenberg’s original 1980 Scanners a much overdue Blu-ray release speaks volumes as to how unlikely this news is to make any heads explode from excitement. This is probably the first time a Scream Factory announcement has been worded »
