Scream Factory Delays Release of Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi Blu-Ray Collection

Fans of Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff will have to wait a few months longer for the blu-ray debut of some of their vintage team-ups, as Scream Factory’s upcoming collection has been delayed three month to June 18.

Scream Factory announced on twitter that “..unforeseen discussions behind the scenes” were responsible for the delay (perhaps Poelzig and Dr.  Werdegast had another dispute).

The collection includes such hard to find films as The Black Cat (1934), The Raven (1935), The Invisible Ray (1936) and Black Friday (1940). The 4-disc set also comes with a slipcover by monster artist extraordinaire, Joel Robinson (who fans will remember from the recent The Vincent Price Collections Blu-rays).

Let’s hope there are no further delays, so we can all enjoy a gourmet feast of classic horror this June.
