Back in November, UK distributor StudioCanal released two of their John Carpenter titles with some pretty nifty packaging. They were The Fog and They Live, and each set contained the film in 4K UHD, two Blu-rays, and the soundtrack CD (always worth it when it's a John Carpenter film...). In December, Escape From New York followed.
StudioCanal had some maybe-we-do-maybe-we-don't shenanigans going on about giving Prince of Darkness a similar treatment. They released the film as a standard Blu-ray back in January, but then proceeded to announce a collector's edition similar to the other three.
Well, here we are, a few months later, and for completion's sake let's look at Prince of Darkness, as it is as pretty as its three brothers. Click on the edge of the pictures to scroll through them, or at the center of each to see a bigger version.
And here it is, a big slipcase.
Inside the slipcase are a large Digipak, a booklet, a folded poster and some cards.
All contents opened. On the discs are the film in 4K UHD, two Blu-rays, and the soundtrack CD.
The backside of the Digipak. I'm seeing green!
Here is the booklet, it's thin, but has 48 pages.
In it, there are articles, a Q&A with John Carpenter, posters... the works! I'm really fond of the Fangoria article in this one.
The (back) end of yet another great John Carpenter release.
