Arrow Video Announces Street Dates for Killer Klowns Blu-ray and New Novel Based on The Hitcher
Arrow Video has just announced new April release dates for both the upcoming Blu-ray of The Chiodo Brothers’ classic horror-comedy Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and also Alexandra Heller-Nicholas’ academic non-fiction novel based on Eric Red’s The Hitcher.
The Chiodo Brothers’ Killer Klowns from Outer Space will be hitting Blu-ray on April 4th and Alexandra Heller-Nicholas’ The Hitcher will be hitching a ride to a shelf near you on April 6th.
Killer Klowns from Outer Space Blu-ray rundown: Arrow’s journey through the world of film comes to a close in the United States with the 80’s cult classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space. Since the beginning of time, clowns have always been scary rather than funny, but it was the release of the Chiodo Brothers horror-comedy that forever cemented clowns as space creatures with a thirst for human blood. If this circus comes to your town, move.
The Hitcher book rundown: The critical paths into The Hitcher that this book explores are rich and plentiful, and through an exploration of its origins and production history, a close analysis of the film itself and a consideration of the immediate fallout following its release and its longer legacies, this book celebrates one of the greatest highway horror movies ever made. Alexandra Heller-Nicholas is a film critic and academic from Melbourne, Australia, who has written four books on cult, horror and exploitation cinema. Featuring new artwork by Gary Pullin and original stills.
Killer Klowns From Outer Space hits Blu-ray April 4th and The Hitcher book hits shelves on April 6th.
