Scream Factory to Go SCHIZOID in 2013!

If you haven't noticed, the folks at Scream Factory have been knocking it out of the park lately, thanks to releases like HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH, the upcoming THEY LIVE Special Edition and recently announced titles like THE ISLANDTHE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN and PHANTASM 2. 
And today comes the news that they'll be releasing three Cannon titles on DVD (possibly Blu-Ray depending upon the elements) next year, including 1980's SCHIZOID (aka MURDER BY MAIL) starring Klaus Kinski as a suave psychiatrist.
Here's the lowdown from their Facebook page...
Cannon films X-RAY (1981 - aka: HOSPITAL MASSACRE with Barbi Benton), SCHIZOID (1980 - starring Klaus Kinski) and THE GODSEND (1980 - starring Donald Pleasence's daughter, Angela) are on tap for a release late in 2013! All three have never been out on DVD before.  
As mentioned yesterday, these films will not show up on our schedule until later in 2013 so we cannot confirm they will be on Blu-ray as we have not seen the masters yet. We say this only to manage expectations. More details on these fun flicks will be presented next year.  
Have a great "Trick or Treat" filled weekend!
I haven't watched the flick in years so I'll be anxious to see how it fares. Here's my review of SCHIZOID from the special Kinski issue of ER.
