The first release under the new Paramount Scares banner has been unveiled, and it’s in the form of an intriguing 4K set. It’s called Paramount Scares Vol.1.
The limited edition set contains five horror movies from Paramount, old and new, plus a batch of extra goodies to sweeten the pot.
While four of the movies in the set are already revealed, there’s a fifth mystery disc that’s going to be revealed at a later date. Paramount has a pretty stacked roster of potential suspects including A Quiet Place, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Anihaliation, Scream VI, and Friday the 13th, so it’ll probably be something more out of leftfield. The best clue comes from the press release.
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.
Paramount Scares 4K Set Details
