The folks at Shout! Factory had a great track record of re-releasing classic horror. Now that they have added a horror specific branch of Shout! Factory entitled Scream Factory, the horror films should be flowing like crazy. One such film is The Island. Check out the news below.

Straight from the Scream Factory Facebook page today came the news about The Island getting re-released.

Peter Benchley’s swashbuckling THE ISLAND (1980) starring Michael Caine is coming soon! Here’s an exclusive first look at the official DVD & Blu-ray combo pack design which incorporates the original theatrical key art.

Official Synopsis: David Warner leads a band of modern day pirates who raid yachts and sail boats of people on vacation out in the Caribbean. Michael Caine is a reporter who goes out there with his son to investigate the mystery of the disappearing boats. He runs across Warner and his band of raiders and they decide to induct them into their tribe.

Not really a true horror film but it has the suspense to be put into the genre we suppose. Stay tuned for more news.
