Los Angeles, CA – October 20, 2016 – The hunt is on. Shout! Factory TV today announces the debut of orig­i­nal series Horror Hunters, a Scream Factory pro­duc­tion, exclu­sive­ly made for Shout! Factory TV. The pilot episode will be pre­sent­ed in a livestream on Wednesday, October 26 at 6 p.m. PST with an encore pre­sen­ta­tion at 9 p.m. PST at ShoutFactoryTV.com.

Horror Hunters is Scream Factory’s first for­ay into pro­duc­ing orig­i­nal pre­mi­um unscript­ed series for the Shout! Factory TV dig­i­tal plat­form.  Made by and for fans of the hor­ror gen­re, the launch of Horror Hunters serves as an impor­tant step in broad­en­ing the reach of Shout! Factory and its imprints as a tent­pole new show for the stream­ing ser­vice. Horror Hunters will be livestreamed and then avail­able for VOD view­ing on Shout! Factory TV begin­ning October 28.

In Horror Hunters, hor­ror experts Adam Rockoff and Aaron Christensen embark on a jour­ney to dis­cov­er some of the great­est col­lec­tions of hor­ror mem­o­ra­bil­ia in the world.  At each des­ti­na­tion, the Horror Hunters offer rare and valu­able pieces from their own col­lec­tions while attempt­ing to trade for the most sought after, one-of-a-kind items they encoun­ter.

In the pilot episode, the Horror Hunters vis­it Frankenstein über-col­lec­tor Phil Meenan and come face-to-face with a work­ing (and dan­ger­ous!) Jacob’s Ladder device.  Next, the Horror Hunters trav­el across Chicago to meet with well-known hor­ror blog­ger Jon Kitley inside the infa­mous Kitley’s Krypt, where they pro­pose an epic trade.

Because the show is made for the ulti­mate hor­ror col­lec­tor, Horror Hunters view­ers will be encour­aged to take a short sur­vey to give feed­back on the pilot fol­low­ing the livestream. This feed­back from fans will guide the future of the show beyond its pilot episode, and each voter will be entered to win a Scream Factory Blu-ray prize pack­age.
