In October, Scream Factory, the horror-thriller offshoot of independent film distributor Shout Factory, will bring Terror Train and The Funhouse to Blu-ray. Both titles will be making their North American Blu-ray debuts.

Terror Train:

Directed by Roger Spottiswoode (Tomorrow Never Dies) and shot by cinematographer John Alcott (The Shining), this 1980 chiller transplants the slasher movie to America's railways, as a group of college kids having a New Year's Eve party on a chartered train find themselves the targets of a deranged psychopath with an all-too personal grudge. "Scream Queen" Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween) leads a cast that includes Academy Award-winner Ben Johnson (The Last Picture Show), Hart Bochner (Die Hard), and magician David Copperfield.

The Funhouse:

From the mind of filmmaker Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre) comes this cult 1981 shocker, which centers around Amy (Elizabeth Berridge, Amadeus), a teenager excited about her first date with the hunky Buzz (Cooper Huckabee, True Blood) at the local carnival. However, Amy and Buzz unwittingly witness a grisly murder in the carnival's funhouse, an act that forces the young lovers and their friends into a brutal fight for survival. Sylvia Miles (Midnight Cowboy), William Finley (The Black Dahlia), and Kevin Conway (Gettysburg) co-star, and Academy Award-winner Rick Baker (An American Werewolf in London) provides the film's gruesome makeup effects.

Scream Factory presents both pictures in their original aspect ratios - 1.85:1 for Terror Train and 2.39:1 for The Funhouse - with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks. The respective discs also contain the following supplements:
