This year marks the 20th anniversary of Rob Zombie‘s feature debut House of 1000 Corpses, and Lionsgate will be releasing a brand new Blu-ray next month.
The 20th anniversary Blu-ray set will be released on April 11, 2023, and you’ll be able to get a special SteelBook version of the release exclusively through Best Buy.
As we recently learned, the new release will also include a brand new Rob Zombie Director’s Commentary track that’ll be exclusive to Digital, and Zombie shares on Instagram that he’s recording the track today – 20 years after his original track for the film’s DVD release.
Check out Zombie’s Instagram update below.
When House of 1000 Corpses slashed its way into theaters 20 years ago, 1970s-style horror – and camp – returned with bone-snapping, scream-inducing vengeance. Zombie’s directorial debut, this first film of a trilogy introduces the Firefly family, backwoods sadists who plunge two young couples into a nightmare world of torture, satanic ritual, and cannibalism.
With a killer cast including horror legends Sheri Moon Zombie, Bill Moseley, Sid Haig, and Karen Black, House of 1000 Corpses is both a homage to a golden era and a scary good time from an innovative, unrivaled shock-master.
