Diabolik Sends Blu-rays of Stephen King’s ‘It’, ‘Cat’s Eye’ and ‘Salem’s Lot’ Home

Anytime a classic Stephen King flick finds its way to Blu-ray, we get a little excited. We know there’s a special release of It on the way. Whether there’s any relation to this specific release feels somewhat irrelevant, as we’re finally going to see a couple awesome flicks in Cat’s Eye, It and ‘Salem’s Lot, on Blu-ray. And that rocks, any way you slice it.

All three films are scheduled to arrive on September 20th and all three have received the restoration treatment. However, as far as we know right now, the only disc to feature any bonus material will be ‘Salem’s Lot, which will be accompanied by a commentary track featuring director TobeHooper himself.

Diabolik DVD will be sending these goodies home very soon, and at just $15 a pop, it’s hard to lose snatching one, if not all three discs.

It Synopsis: In the Town of Derry, the local kids are disappearing one by one, leaving behind torn body parts/remains. In a place known as ‘The Barrens’, a group of seven kids are united by their horrifying and strange encounters with a clown called Pennywise. Bill Denborough has a personal vendetta with the clown. 27 years after their last encounter with Pennywise, the ‘Losers Club’ has regrouped from their successful lives and businesses because IT has returned and kids are disappearing again. The only problem is that they have all forgotten what occurred that summer. It’s up to The Losers Club to regain their memories, to think of the key to killing Pennywise, and to stay alive long enough to end his tyranny but to also realise what brought them together in the first place.

Cat’s Eye Synopsis: Three horror-thriller tales revolve around a mysterious stray cat which is attempting to find a little girl in trouble. In “Quitters, Inc.”: the cat is picked up by a shady New York “doctor” who uses experimental techniques to get people to quit smoking. His latest client is a man named Morrison, who learns he’ll suffer some terrible consequences if he tries to cheat. In “The Ledge”: the cat is picked up by Cressner, a shady Atlantic City millionaire who forces tennis pro Norris (his wife’s lover), to walk a narrow ledge around his high-rise penthouse apartment. In “The General”: the cat arrives in Wilmington, North Carolina, where it is found by Amanda, the young girl it has been sent to protect. What she needs protection from is a tiny, evil troll who lives behind the skirting board in her bedroom.

‘Salem’s Lot Synopsis: The successful writer Benjamin “Ben” Mears returns to his hometown Salem’s Lot, Maine, expecting to write a new novel about the Marsten House. Ben believes that the manor is an evil house that attracts evil men since the place has many tragic stories and Ben saw a ghostly creature inside the house when he was ten. Ben finds that the Marsten House has just been rented to the antique dealers Richard K. Straker and his partner Kurt Barlow that is permanently traveling. Ben meets the divorced teacher Susan Norton that is living with her parents and they have a love affair. Ben also gets close to her father Dr. Bill Norton and his former school teacher Jason Burke. When people start to die anemic, Ben believes that Straker’s partner is a vampire. But how to convince his friends that he is not crazy and that is the truth?
