THE OUTING, THE VAGRANT, and More Coming to DVD Via Scream! Factory!

A while ago, I made my list of twenty horror films not available on any digital format that I'd love to see get released. I've done a very poor job of reporting on when these unreleased titles will get a relase, but it's good to start now, with TerrorVision and Prison already out and The Mutilator being slated for a Blu-Ray release. Now, Scream! Factory continues to please yet again with one of their 4-movie packs (the other one they've relased contained B-movie classics like Cyclone, Alienator, Eye of the Tiger, and Exterminator 2), and 3 movies have never seen the light of a DVD release.

There's the killer genie slasher movie The Outing (AKA The Lamp) from 1987, which made my list, and the fantastic Bill Paxton-starring horror/comedy The Vagrant from 1992, which didn't make the list only because I didn't see it at the time of writing. It also includes the never-before-released The Godsend (which I have yet to view) from 1980 and the Lucio Fulci cult classic Schizoid (more commonly known as Lizard in a Woman's Skin) from 1971. Scream has already stated that there will sadly be no bonus features, and The Outing and The Godsend will only receive full-frame transfers. However, this is still fantastic news to see these well-deserving movies get their due. 

The release date has been set for August 20 of this year, so keep your eye out for it!
