Scream Factory is giving their all-star treatment to the horror classic Creepshow. The film is beloved for being one of the best horror anthologies ever made. Part of that comes from the writing of Stephen King with the direction of George A. Romero. It also features great effects by the horror legend, Tom Savini. The release date of the Collector’s Edition is October 23rd, 2018 for the United States and Canada.
The Collector’s Edition of Creepshow will come with a rigid slipcover. The contents are the Blu-ray case along with a collectible booklet featuring a new essay from Michael Gingold, an accomplished horror writer having been featured in Fangoria, Rue-Morgue and Dellirium. There is also new artwork for the slipcase from Laz Marquez. The case wrap is also going to have the original theatrical artwork on both sides. This will include the ticket booth as well as the comic book. You can choose which cover of the Blu-ray you want!
The updated Blu-ray is also going to have new extras and specs. They are still in progress and will announce more details in September. There seems to be plenty planned; like an all-new transfer of the film.
Masters of the macabre – writer Stephen King and director George A. Romero – conjure up five shocking yarns, each a virtuoso exercise in the ghouls-and-gags style of classic ’50s horror comics. A murdered man emerges from the grave for Father’s Day cake. A meteor’s ooze makes everything … grow. A professor selects his wife as a snack for a crated creature. A scheming husband plants two lovers up to their necks in terror. A malevolent millionaire with an insect phobia becomes the prey of a cockroach army. Add the spirited performances of an excellent cast (Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, E.G. Marshall and King himself) and the ghoulish makeup wizardry of Tom Savini, and you have a non-stop, thrilling ride that “plays like an anthology of human phobias” (Roger Ebert)!
If you order the Special Edition Creepshow directly from Scream Factory’s website, the first 1,500 sales will have their Blu-Ray ship out two weeks earlier. This exclusive offer from Scream Factory will also have a rolled 28.5” x 16.5” lithograph poster of the slipcase art by Laz Marquez.
This is definitely an offer for fans of this film definitely won’t want to pass up!
