Choose your own adventure on HD DVD or Blu-ray

Warner Home Video has recently announced that “Return to House on Haunted Hill” will be hitting Blu-ray and HD DVD on October 16th. The high definition versions of this title will feature “navigational cinema”, which will provide a ‘choose your own adventure’ type of in movie experience.

Viewers will be able to choose what options or paths a character will take during the movie, resulting in different consequences and different storyline paths for the film. All in all, Warner is promising that the film will provide at least 96 different possible paths, theoretically resulting in a much higher replay value for the title.

I will definitely be checking out this title once it is released in October. Warner has set a suggested retail price at $34.99 for both the HD DVD and Blu-ray versions, but I expect the actual retail pricing to drop to around $24.99 at some stores.

  1. So if there is bad acting, we can choose several different ways for the main characters to be brutally murdered? This is genius! You have no idea how many times I’ve prayed that Josh Hartnett would get shot in the head, or slowly cut in half.

    I wonder if such Choose Your Own Adventure titles as “Space Vampire” will be making it to our high def TVs. That one was a classic
