Lucio Fulci's House by the Cemetery and Zombie announced for Blu-ray!

In some of the best home-video news of the year, Lucio Fulci's unforgettable Zombie is finally going to hit Blu-ray in late October courtesy of Blue Underground. The new two-disc deluxe set (also available on DVD) will feature both new and old extras including:

Disc 1:

•Audio Commentary with Star Ian McCulloch and Diabolik Magazine Editor Jason J. Slater
•Theatrical Trailers
•TV Spots
•Radio Spots
•Poster & Still Gallery
•Guillermo del Toro Intro

Disc 2:

•Zombie Wasteland – Interviews with Stars Ian McCulloch, Richard Johnson & Al Cliver, and Actor/Stuntman Ottaviano Dell'Acqua
•Flesh Eaters on Film – Interview with Co-Producer Fabrizio De Angelis
•Deadtime Stories – Interviews with Co-Writers Elisa Briganti and (Uncredited) Dardano Sacchetti
•World of the Dead – Interviews with Cinematographer Sergio Salvati and Production & Costume Designer Walter Patriarca
•Zombi Italiano – Interviews with Special Make-Up Effects Artists Gianetto De Rossi & Maurizio Trani and Special Effects Artist Gino De Rossi
•Notes on a Headstone – Interview with Composer Fabio Frizzi
•All in the Family – Interview with Antonella Fulci
•Zombie Lover – Award-Winning Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro talks about one of his favorite films

Fellow Fulci fanatics will want to hold onto their old Shriek Show double-disc DVDs as it contains extras that still won't be found anywhere else, but I expect that Blue Undergrounds set will be the absolute ultimate edition as far as sound and vision goes.

Also, coming in September, Blue Underground is unleashing Fulci's equally mesmerizing House by the Cemetery on Blu-ray with these exciting extras:

Meet the Boyles - Interviews with Stars Catriona MacColl and Paolo Malco
Children of the Night - Interviews with Stars Giovanni Frezza and Silvia Collatina
Tales of Laura Gittleson - Interview with Star Dagmar Lassander
My Time With Terror - Interview with Star Carlo De Mejo
A Haunted House Story - Interviews with Co-Writers Dardano Sacchetti and Elisa Briganti
To Build a Better Death Trap - Interviews with Cinematographer Sergio Salvati, Special Make-Up Effects Artists Giannetto De Rossi & Maurizio Trani, Special Effects Artist Gino De Rossi, and Actor Giovanni De Nava
Deleted Scene
Theatrical Trailers
TV Spot
Poster & Still Gallery

I am truly excited to hear about these exciting releases
and can't wait to add them to Italian Horror and Fulci shelf!

I'm surprised they went with House instead of City of the Living Dead.

In any case, these are MUST HAVES.
