Vestron Video Collector’s Series will unleash director David Cronenberg’s debut feature Shivers and Fred Savage & Howie Mandel’s monster-comedy Little Monsters on Special Edition Blu-ray this September.
Both have new artwork (see below) and Lionsgate will release the list of the special features soon. This update comes to us via Michael Felsher over on Facebook. Check out his post below.
Shivers begins after a scientist living in a posh apartment complex slaughters a teen girl and kills himself, investigators discover that the murderer had been carrying on experiments involving deadly parasites. Roger St. Luc (Paul Hampton), a doctor living in the building, and his aide, Nurse Forsythe (Lynn Lowry), then realize that the parasites are on the loose, attacking fellow tenants. And those who become hosts turn into erotically obsessed maniacs who pass the bugs on through violent sex.
Meanwhile, Little Monsters tells the tale of Brian who isn’t scared of the monster living under the bed. On the contrary, when he gets to know the wild-eyed boogeyman, Maurice, the pair become fast friends. During the night, Maurice takes his young charge into the netherworld of monsters, where they have a great time making mischief in the lives of sleeping children. But Brian’s opinion of Maurice and his freewheeling lifestyle changes when he discovers that he himself is turning into a monster.
