Thriller and The Twilight Zone coming to Blu-Ray courtesy of Image Entertainment

It looks as if Image Entertainment have avoided for bankruptcy, for now anyway, and will be releasing the Boris Karloff hosted show Thriller on DVD and also the first season of The Twilight Zone on Blu-Ray.?? Thriller will have numerous special features and will be released on August 31. Whilst I am pleased that Image have chosen to release the complete series rather than release individual season sets I was rather surprised by the $149.99 RRP.?? A number of online shops will most likely be selling it slightly cheaper but ??100 for a 67 episode show is a little steep.?? Perhaps this is to be expected considering the slim profit margins cult television shows such as this make for independent DVD labels??? Still, it will be a must buy for me, the episodes Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper and Pigeons from Hell being the stand-out episodes for me.

Some time later in the fall, Image will also release the first season of Rod Serling's classic The Twilight Zone on Blu-Ray.?? No release date has been announced yet but Amazon are already offering it for pre-order at $89.99, another high price tag.?? I wonder how some of the video taped episodes will look in HD???
