As most of you know by now, Scream Factory will be giving horror classic Night of the Creeps the Collector’s Edition treatment. It isn’t made clear in the press release, whether we’re getting new transfers, but what we do know is that the release will contain both the Theatrical Cut, as well as the Director’s Cut, and comes loaded with extras, such as a new episode of Horror’s Hallowed Ground, and a plethora of interviews which will no doubt serve a concurrent retrospective documentary on the making of the film. Night of the Creeps Collector’s Edition was originally slated for a May 28th release date, but due to unforeseen “11th hour” issue, the new release date is June 25th.
Pre-order the release by visiting the Shout! Factory website.
“A fantastic horror movie … There is so much to love about Night of the Creeps that I have no idea where to begin.” – Bloody Disgusting
Thrill me! When an alien experiment goes awry, it crashes to Earth in 1959 and infects a young college student. Twenty-seven years later, his cryogenically frozen body is thawed out by fraternity pledges … and the campus is quickly overrun by alien creatures whose victims turn into zombies! Fred Dekker’s thoroughly enjoyable throwback chiller deftly mixes all sorts of genres while simultaneously having fun with them (the college and all the leading characters are named after famous horror movie directors).
