If you've listened to our Corpse Club member-exclusive audio commentary or you've read Heather Wixson's 30th anniversary retrospectives on the film, then you know we're big fans of Fred Walton's April Fool's Day here at Daily Dead, so we're especially excited that Scream Factory has revealed a March 24th release date and new cover art by Yannick Bouchard for their Collector's Edition Blu-ray release of the 1986 horror comedy.
Special features for the April Fool's Day Collector's Edition Blu-ray will be revealed at a later date, but in their announcement on Facebook (see below), Scream Factory mentioned that they have "several cast and crew already on board," and we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated on future announcements.
From Scream Factory: **APRIL FOOL’S DAY Update**
But before we leave to celebrate Thanksgiving this week, we'll leave you with more information on another upcoming holiday! ;-) Details we have on our upcoming Blu-ray at the moment are as follows:
• National street date for North America (Region A) is March 24th.
• This is being presented as a Collector’s Edition and will come guaranteed with a slipcover in its first three months of release.
• The newly-commissioned "doll-ed" up artwork you see pictured on the left comes to us from artist Yannick Bouchard. (And if you know the film this makes perfect sense) This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the classic original theatrical artwork (pictured on the right).
• New extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date but we can confirm today that we have several cast and crew already on board and we plan to load it up as much as possible!
