Coming soon from Scream Factory, the label has taken to social media today to announce Blu-ray releases for 1987’s A Return to Salem’s Lot and 1991’s The Borrower, both of which are North American Blu-ray debuts! They’re set for release this summer, with A Return to Salem’s Lot hitting Blu-ray on August 24 and The Borrower being released on August 17.
Extra for both will be announced at a later date.
A Return to Salem’s Lot: “The terrifying tale of Salem’s Lot continues in this shocking and satirical follow-up. Beneath the quaint, picture-perfect exterior of a small New England community lurks an unsettling, undead evil: vampires. When fresh blood comes to town in the form of amoral anthropologist Joe Weber and his son Jeremy, the vampires employ the father to document their story. But when the stakes are raised, Joe must take on the hellish horde or lose his son … and his soul.”
“Directed and co-written by genre legend Larry Cohen (the It’s Alive trilogy, Black Caesar, God Told Me To) and featuring Michael Moriarty (the star of Cohen’s Q: The Winged Serpent), A Return To Salem’s Lot is a ghoulishly clever follow-up to the hit miniseries based on master of horror Stephen King’s acclaimed novel.”
The Borrower: “From the creative mind of director John McNaughton (Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer) comes an eerie tale of an alien killer sentenced to live the rest of his days on Earth for committing unspeakable crimes. The strange insect-like creature arrives in a lone spaceship. When he arrives on our planet, his head explodes.”
“His survival depends on his ability to find a new head for his body. Thus begins a carnage of murder that even the city’s toughest detectives Diana Pierce (Rae Dawn Chong, Commando) and Charles Kreiger (Don Gordon, Bullitt) are unable to solve.”
