Paramount has gathered Rosemary’s Baby, Pet Sematary, Crawl, Smile, and a mystery title together for the Paramount Scares Vol. 1 4K set
Paramount Home Entertainment has announced that they will be releasing a limited edition 4K box set containing five horror films on October 24th. The set is called Paramount Scares Vol. 1, indicating this is just the first in what they intend to be a series of collections of chilling films from the Paramount library. The films in this particular set are the genre classics Rosemary’s Baby (1968) and Pet Sematary (1989), plus a pair of recent box office successes, Crawl (2019) and Smile (2022). Intriguingly, Paramount has chosen to keep the fifth film in the set a mystery…
According to a press release, Paramount Scares Vol. 1 will allow fans to “plumb the depths of the horror genre with this collectible box set featuring five unforgettable movies, all in eye-popping 4K Ultra HD, along with over four hours of legacy special features and exclusive collectible items. Housed in deluxe packaging, each of the following films is presented in a special sleeve with artwork exclusive to the collection.” You can take a look at the artwork at the bottom of this article.
Here’s the information on the films:
Rosemary’s Baby (1968)— Newly remastered on 4K Ultra HD, this iconic classic celebrates its 55th anniversary this year. With groundbreaking camerawork and bone-chilling suspense, Rosemary’s Baby gave birth to the modern thriller. Featuring extraordinary performances—including Ruth Gordon in an Oscar®-winning role as an eccentric neighbor—the film received extensive critical praise. Widely considered to be one of the greatest horror films of all time, Rosemary’s Baby was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2014.
Pet Sematary (1989)— Written for the screen by internationally renowned author Stephen King and based on his iconic bestseller, director Mary Lambert’s thrilling Pet Sematary electrified audiences upon its release in 1989, earning more than $57 million to become the highest grossing horror film of the time. The shocking depiction of unspeakable evil was remastered in 4K under the supervision of Lambert using the original film negative.
Crawl (2019)— Produced by Sam Raimi and directed by Alexandre Aja, this unexpected and suspense-filled creature feature took audiences and critics by storm with its story of a father and daughter trying to survive a hurricane beneath a house filling with water…and alligators. With a budget of $13 million, Crawl generated more than $91 million worldwide.
Smile (2022)—This terrifying and inventive film from writer and director Parker Finn became a true horror phenomenon, earning more than $217 million at the global box office and becoming the #1 original horror movie of 2022. A sequel is in development with Finn set to return as director.
Mystery Title— Delivering even more suspense and surprise, the fifth film in the box set is a secret. The fan-favorite movie makes its 4K Ultra HD debut with the release of this collection.
I’m very anxious to hear exactly what the fifth movie in Paramount Scares Vol. 1 is – but even with that one remaining a mystery, this is a good collection of movies.
