Some exceptionally glorious news that I am truly honored to announce. Edward Scissorhands, A personal favorite film of mine and a renowned cult classic, will be reissued on Blu-ray October 13th. Packaged in a nice collector’s giftset which includes custom paper dolls, a heart-shaped cookie cutter, and a topiary air freshener that smells like fresh-cut grass.
However, the best thing about this 25th Anniversary re-release is the blu-ray will contain a brand new 4K Blu-ray transfer.
Considering the original blu-ray contained a less than stellar MPEG-2 codec, Edward Scissorhands has gotten the Blu-ray treatment it rightfully deserves.
A slightly missed opportunity is that we have no new special features. All bonus content has been recycled from the original release.

I look forward to the release of this set and hope some of you do as well!
