Creepshow collectors edition Blu-ray coming this Halloween

Scream Factory is proud (and so unbelievably excited) to reveal today that they are prepping to release the classic George A. Romero and Stephen King 1982 anthology CREEPSHOW this Fall in an all-new upgraded presentation! Because this is a rather huge and beloved title, the powers that be over at Scream Factory are rolling this out a little more uniquely so please read carefully for all the details that we have at the time.

Naturally, this will be branded as a "Collector’s Edition" but packaged a bit differently than done in the past for other CEs. This will come with a rigid slipcover (like the deluxe version release of NIGHTBREED) that will house a Blu-ray case and a collectible booklet featuring a new essay from Michael Gingold (Fangoria, Rue-Morgue, Delirium).

CREEPSHOW follows this awesome synopsis:

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)!

The newly-commissioned artwork pictured on the slipcase 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 plenty are planned along with an all-new film transfer!

If you order from the site directly you will receive the Blu-ray two weeks early and the following exclusive 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 will be the national release which streets on October 23rd. Pre-order HERE.
