Black Friday: Bruce Campbell, Devon Sawa film gets January DVD, Blu-ray release

Released to theatres on November 19th and VOD on November 23rd, director Casey Tebo’s horror comedy Black Friday is now set to reach DVD and Blu-ray on January 4th – and Amazon is taking pre-orders!

Scripted by Andy Greskoviak, Black Friday has the following synopsis:

On the busiest shopping night of the year, a group of disgruntled toy store employees must defend themselves from legions of holiday shoppers when a mysterious alien parasite turns them into monstrous creatures hell-bent on a murderous rampage.

The film stars Devon Sawa (Idle Hands), Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead), Michael Jai White (Black Dynamite), Ivana Baquero (Pan’s Labyrinth), Ryan Lee (Goosebumps), and Stephen Peck (The Night Is Young).

Tebo has said this about the film:

When Andy sent me this script, it was such a blast! It reminded me of some of my favorite holiday horror movies like Gremlins or Krampus. I could see myself running to a midnight showing to see this with other horror fans, and at the same time, I could see my kids watching it at a sleepover with their friends. It’s imaginative, original, scary, fun, and the right bit of ridiculous — and that’s all the things I want to see in a movie!”

Black Friday was produced by MFW Productions and Warner Davis of the Warner Davis Company.

This movie wasn’t quite as awesome as I hoped it would be (you can read my 6/10 review HERE), but I feel compelled to watch it again and might end up owning a copy just because it stars Bruce Campbell (as a character who is very different from Evil Dead hero Ash).
