Initially announced at their Comic-Con panel, Scream Factory has now revealed the full list of special features and cover art for their Collector's Edition Blu-ray of 1981's Road Games (starring Stacy Keach and Jamie Lee Curtis) ahead of its release on November 12th:
Press Release: Los Angeles, CA – Scream Factory will release Road Games on Blu-ray™ on November 12, and riding shotgun is a host of new bonus features, including a new interview, audio commentary, script read, and music demos.
Customers ordering from Shoutfactory.com will receive an exclusive 18x24 rolled poster featuring our brand new artwork, available while supplies last.
Stacy Keach is Pat Quid, a lone trucker who plays games to keep his sanity on long hauls through the desolate Australian Outback. Jamie Lee Curtis is a free-spirited hitchhiker looking for excitement with a game of her own. And somewhere up ahead is a maniac in a van whose game may be butchering young women along the highway. But when the killer decides to raise the stakes, Quid's game becomes personal ... and the rules of this road are about to take some very deadly turns.
Director Richard Franklin (Psycho II) packs plenty of Hitchcock-like twists and suspense into this sly shocker that was nominated for four Australian Film Institute Awards and remains one of the most surprising thrillers of the '80s.
