Olive Films will be bringing Stephen King’s Thinner to Blu-ray this August. The 1996 Tom Holland-directed film stars Robert John Burke, Joe Mantegna, Michael Constantine, Kari Wuhrer, and Lucinda Jenney. Thinner was originally a novel released in 1984 novel by Stephen King, under his pseudonym Richard Bachman:
“Based on the best-seller, Stephen King’s Thinner stars Robert John Burke (Robocop 3) and Joe Mantegna (House of Games) in a story of supernatural terror and countdown to the ultimate payback. A 109-year old gypsy (Michael Constantine, My Big Fat Greek Wedding), hell-bent on revenge, exacts a curse so shocking it compels its victim to gorge himself in an effort to avoid shrinking away to nothingness. With time running out and a torture so bizarre and powerful, even death seems a more likely option.”
The movie will be available on Blu-ray from Olive Films starting on August 21st. The retail price is listed at $29.95, but Amazon is currently offering it as a pre-order for $20.97.
