Scream Factory is proud to reveal they’re prepping to release the classic George A. Romero and Stephen King 1982 anthology Creepshow in an all-new upgraded presentation this Halloween!
Because this is a huge and beloved title, they’re rolling this out a little more uniquely so please read carefully for all the details that we have at the time.
This will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” but packaged a bit differently. This will come with a rigid slipcover that will house a Blu-ray case and a collectible booklet featuring a new essay from Michael Gingold (Fangoria, Rue-Morgue).
The newly-commissioned artwork pictured to the right is from Laz Marquez. The 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 there are plenty planned along with an all-new film transfer.
If you order Creepshow from their site directly you will receive the Blu-ray two weeks early and the following exclusively-made-for us items: A rolled 28.5” x 16.5” lithograph poster of the slipcase art
by Laz Marquez. A rolled 18” x 24” poster of alternative art illustration, also by Laz Marquez.
This new collectors edition will be hitting October 23rd.
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)!
