Be careful what you wish for. Unless you wished for this. In which case, thank you.
I revisited Wishmaster earlier this year (and dubbed it “the original Expendables of horror” for a fun article I wrote here on Bloody Disgusting), and found that I was still able to have a blast with the 1997 franchise-starter. Granted, it may not exactly be a very good movie, but it’s creative, ambitious, and loaded with awesome practical effects. I just can’t help but love that movie.
Of course, Wishmaster was followed up with three sequels that took the franchise to the year 2002, and if you’re a fan of the series, you’ll be delighted to know that the entire saga is soon headed to Blu-ray, in one collection, for the first time. From Lionsgate’s new Vestron Video Collector’s Series label comes the four-film Wishmaster Collection, and we’ve got first details.
We tip our hats to VideoETA for informing us that the Wishmaster Blu-ray collection currently has a street date of March 28th, 2017. The limited collector’s edition release includes all four films and features brand new cover art from Tom “The Dude Designs” Hodge, which VideoETA’s senior editor John Couture was awesome enough to send over to us. You’ll find that below.
According to the official selling features, the set will be “packed with amazing special features,” but we have no further details at this time. The films have been “restored and remastered.”
Bless you, Lionsgate.
