'Mosquito: 20th Anniversary Edition' Buzzes to Blu-ray

Posted Mon Jul 27, 2015 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The 1995 cult monster film will eat Blu-ray alive in October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Synapse Films is preparing to release 'Mosquito: 20th Anniversary Edition' on Blu-ray on October 13.

From the Makers of THE BLOB, PRINCE OF DARKNESS and THEY LIVE and the SPFX Team of ARMY OF DARKNESS, DARKMAN and BATMAN RETURNS comes the high-definition world premiere of this giant monster cult classic!

Science-fiction becomes horrifyingly real for a park full of innocent campers, as a hideous horde of mutated mosquitos viciously attack without warning! A band of survivors flees the bloodthirsty swarm in a death-defying attempt to warn the world of the mosquito menace. Led by a brave young couple and a resourceful government agent, the group realizes their only hope is to take on the bloodthirsty bugs in an explosive final showdown! A chilling blend of sci-fi, humor and old-school horror, MOSQUITO is a tour de force of terror. Starring genre icon Gunnar Hansen (the original "Leatherface" from THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE) and the late, great Ron Asheton (founding member of the punk rock band, The Stooges), MOSQUITO is a gore-drenched tale made with traditional stop-motion and practical effects!

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include: Audio Commentary with Director Gary Jones, Director of Photography and Co-Writer Tom Chaney, and Producer David Thiry; "Bugging Out!" The Making of Mosquito - Featurette; Deleted & Extended Scenes with Optional Director Commentary; Behind-the-Scenes Footage with Optional Director Commentary; Still Gallery; Theatrical Trailer; and Reversible Cover Art.
