Grab that pitchfork! The modern retelling of George A Romero's original 1973 cult classic is bound for Blu-ray in June!

Anchor Bay will bring on the terror with the horror remake 'The Crazies (2010)' starring Timothy Olyphant and Radha Mitchell to Blu-ray on June 29.

Fangoria Magazine called 'The Crazies' “A fast-moving, exciting thrill ride that builds to a flat-out apocalyptic conclusion,” while Colin Covert of the Minneapolis Star Tribune declared it “a slick fearjerker.” BoxOffice Magazine said “This shocker will have horror fans jumping out of their seats,” while Marshall Fine from The Huffington Post bluntly warned the film “will scare the crap out of you.”

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a PCM 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Audio Commentary with Director Breck Eisner, Behind The Scenes with Director Breck Eisner, Paranormal Pandemics, The George A. Romero Template, Make-up Mastermind: Rob Hall In Action, The Crazies Motion Comic Episodes 1 & 2, Visual Effects In Motion, Trailers and TV Spots, The Crazies Motion Comic Trailer, Storyboards: Building A Scene, Behind The Scenes Photo Gallery, and an Easter Egg

The Blu-ray will also include a DVD disc with a Digital Copy of the film.

Here's a peek at the packaging:

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.98.
