1982’s Creepshow is coming to blu-ray in a brand new collector’s edition set. The seminal anthology film is getting an all-new 4K scan as well as a “Crate” of new extras to satisfy even the most die-hard 80s horror movie fan.
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)! Scream Factory had this to say about the new release…
As most of you know by now, we have been busy prepping a new Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release of one of the most memorable, colorful and fun horror films that ever came from the 80s. Today we announce the “Crate” full of amazing bonus extras that will be on it!
