Scream Factory Announces Upgraded Presentation of 'Creepshow' on Collector's Edition Blu-Ray

Lucky fans in the United Stares are finally getting a Creepshow Scream Factory limited collector’s edition Blu-Ray this October.

The good folks over at Scream Factory have been knocking out some killer titles as of late, and today they’ve announced another major horror classic joining their line up of impressive releases. George A. Romero and Stephen King‘s 1982 anthology Creepshow is receiving an all-new upgraded presentation on a collector’s edition Blu-Ray this fall.

Romero and King have approached this movie with humor and affection, as well as an appreciation of the macabre.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times.

Synopsis:
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)!

DETAILS VIA SCREAM FACTORY:

  • Naturally, this will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” but packaged a bit differently than we have done in the past for other CEs. This will come with a rigid slipcover (like what we did with the deluxe version release of Nightbreed) that will house a Blu-ray case and a collectible booklet featuring a new essay from Michael Gingold (Fangoria, Rue-Morgue, Dellirium). The newly-commissioned artwork pictured on the slipcase is from Laz Marquez (Army of Darkness, The Howling and Lifeforce steelbooks).
  • The Creepshow Scream Factory Blu-ray case wrap inside will be reversible featuring original theatrical artwork on both sides. (The “ticket booth” one and the “Comic book” one.)
  • New extras and specs are still in progress and will be announced later in September. Rest-assured we have plenty planned and…we are in progress of doing an all-new film transfer!
  • This will be the national release which streets on October 23rd. U.S. and Canada territories (Region A).
