Today, while browsing Amazon UK, I had the surprise of coming accross pages that had me instantly intrigued and excited. This may not be breaking news (I did find some message boards discussing this information with threads dating back to February 2017) but I just found out about this so I wanted to share the news in case other people didn’t know about these upcoming releases.
Titles such as Blood Diner, The Return of the Living Dead III, Waxwork and C.H.U.D II are listed as pre-orders for the price of 23,94£. If you keep up with news in the collecting world, you know these titles have been released in the United States as part of the Vestron Video Collector’s Series, which is a line launched by Lionsgate in 2016.
I haven’t seen any announcements regarding these titles being released in the UK but Amazon identifies the manufacturer as Lionsgate UK. The temporary release date is set to August 28th, 2017.
If Lionsgate is indeed bringing the Vestron Video Collector’s Series to the UK, I can assure you I will collect them all ! I will keep you updated as soon as I find more information on these releases.
Below, you will find the links to pre-order each of the four launch titles via Amazon UK.
Update : the information can also be found on blu-ray.com, the titles listed as being released by Lionsgate Films in the UK on August 28th, 2017 are : Blood Diner, Waxwork, C.H.U.D II and Return of the Living Dead III. As of today, there is no information regarding the possible release of Chopping Mall (which was a launch title in the US).
