Creepshow Collector’s Edition Coming from Scream Factory
This is one Blu-ray you will want to uncrate this October.
By Chris Morse
Stephen King and George A. Romero’s classic horror anthology film Creepshow is getting the collector’s edition Blu-ray it deserves, courtesy of Shout! Factory. Aside from the usual batch of special features we can expect, this release features a brand-new 4k scan of the original negative, complete with color correction and signed off on by the movie’s director of photography, Michael Gornick.
Check out the full release details, special features, and cover art for this Blu-ray below.
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)!

This Scream Factory release was originally offering a limited edition bundle featuring an exclusive poster and lithograph for the first 2,000 pre-orders, but that has since sold out. If you order early, however, you can still take advantage of receiving the item two weeks ahead of its release date of October 23rd. Right in time for Halloween, as we have noticed with all of these great horror releases as of late.
The Creepshow Collector’s Edition Blu-ray will set you back $34.93 plus the cost of shipping, but considering all of the brand-new special features being offered here, that isn’t too bad. Don’t be a lunkhead like Jordy Verrill. Grab up your copy from Shout! Factory today!
