Scream Factory: Wes Craven’s ‘Deadly Friend’ Brings the Chaos to Blu-Ray for the First Time This October!



Scream Factory: Wes Craven's 'Deadly Friend' Brings the Chaos to Blu-Ray for the First Time This October!

Our friends over at Scream Factory announced today that Deadly Friend, the 1986 horror gem directed by the late Wes Craven, is making its Blu-Ray debut on October 12th.

The company revealed the following details on the upcoming release, which sadly doesn’t include a director’s cut that fans have been hoping for:

We anticipate being asked if we found any alternate footage from the film (as seen in the original theatrical trailer) or Craven’s more milder original feature-length cut. Unfortunately, we could not locate any lost footage after investigating. Sorry, we tried. As fans of the film ourselves we wanted to see that too!

Other important details from Scream Factory:

This will be presented as a Collector’s Edition and will come guaranteed with a slipcover in its first three months of release. The newly commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from artist Colin Murdoch. This art will be front-facing, and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the original theatrical artwork.

Extras will be announced on a later date, but we can confirm today that there will be a new HD transfer of the film (same runtime & content as the prior “Twisted Terror” DVD) and interview with actress Kristy Swanson!

Pre-orders on our site begin today which includes the Blu-ray plus a rolled 18” x 24” poster of the new art. The poster is exclusive to us and will be made at a limited run of 700 pieces.

You can pre-order Deadly Friend on Blu-Ray at the official Shout! Factory website.
