American International’s posters are often better than the films they promote. Make that much better. The Screaming Skull (1958) was one of their masterpieces, complete with the promise to bury you for free if you died of fright while watching the movie (there’s a prologue covering it on the front of the picture). Pure genius. Of course, William Castle used a similar gimmick the same year with his Macabre.

Scream Factory has announced an April release for The Screaming Skull on Blu-Ray. For those of us who can’t get enough of these AIP pictures in hi-def, that’s good news indeed.

    You’ve got to be kidding????
    Finally, a decent copy of this no-budget classic, and in Blu-Ray to boot! I’ve soooooo many poor public domain versions of SCREAMING SKULL on DVD & VHS, and yes Toby, I even have the KEN FILMS Super-8 version!….Great news, can’t wait!
