Arrow Video Restores Director Michael Gornick's Creepshow 2 For A Blu-ray Launch On Dec. 13

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Arrow Video, with domestic sales and distribution expertise provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has targeted Dec. 13 as the release date for a Blu-ray edition of a newly remastered 2K restoration of director Michael Gornick’s 1987 Stephen King-inspired horror anthology, Creepshow 2

Three Stephen King-inspired short stories, adapted for the screen by none other than George A. Romero, are hosted by Creepshow Creep — these are: “Old Chief Wood'nhead,” “The Raft,” and “The Hitch-hiker.”  Creep appears in the connecting segments along with a boy named Billy, who is pursued by bullies … they end up becoming lunch courtesy of one of Billy’s mail order “special interests!”

Bonus features include commentary by director Michael Gornick (Cinematographer for Romero’s Martin, Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead), who is joined by producer and documentary film director Perry Martin, behind-the-scenes footage and a pair of featurettes — “Nightmares in Foam Rubber” and “My Friend Rick.”
