"Thrill me." If those two words send chills down your nostalgic spine, then you'll be thrilled to know that Scream Factory is releasing a new Collector's Edition Blu-ray of Fred Dekker's Night of the Creeps, and they've teamed up with NECA to release the first official action figure of Tom Atkins' iconic character from the film, Detective Ray Cameron.

The bonus features for the Night of the Creeps Collector's Edition Blu-ray have not yet been revealed, but the new release is due out on May 28th and is available to pre-order in both a standard and deluxe edition. The new Blu-ray will have the Director's Cut of Dekker's film, as well as the special features from the previous US Blu-ray release, and the Scream Factory team is also looking to include the movie's theatrical cut with an alternate ending.

We'll keep Daily Dead readers updated when more information is revealed this April, and in the meantime, you can check out the full announcement and images from Scream Factory:

"We aim to “thrill” you today with very exciting news! Please read carefully on as there’s a lot to communicate…

• This will be presented as a Collector’s Edition and will come guaranteed with a slipcover in its first three months of release.

• We are doing something different and not adding a newly-designed illustration to the national release.
