Young Frankenstein to Descend on Blu-ray Oct. 7


Jul 24, 2008

October sees dozens of horror and horror-themed movies, and Fox Home Entertainment today announced it will get in on the action with the Blu-ray debut of Young Frankenstein. On October 7, Mel Brooks’ classic (1974) spoof on Mary Shelley’’s horror novel will hit your high-definition screen for the first time.

Young Frankenstein will include a mad scientist’s lab worth of Blu-ray-exclusive features, listed below. The movie will be authored in BD-J on a dual-layer 50GB disc presented in widescreen (1.85:1) format. The audio will naturally be English 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio, and it will include English, French, Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin and Korean subtitles. Guess Fox didn’t want anyone to miss out on the punchlines.
