'Loose Screws' Coming to Blu-ray

Posted Thu Jul 1, 2010 at 07:00 AM PDT by

The sequel to the sex comedy classic will be available in high-definition late this summer.

Severin will be bringing the cult 1985 film 'Screwballs II: Loose Screws' to Blu-ray on July 27.

The uproarious film has been restored to its former glory thanks to a rare 35mm print recently unearthed in Glendale. The pristine condition ensures the DVD and Blu-Ray versions of 'Loose Screws' offer not only the original aspect ratio, but also rich lustrous colors; two elements not seen since the successful film’s 1985 debut.

'Loose Screws' vividly captures the looks and sounds of 1985 with memorable fashion and music. In fact, the soundtrack is made up of original songs written exclusively for the film and performed by the Nu Kats. A standout is “Do The Screw,” a song that appears in the film during an unforgettable production number on the beach. Nu Kat singer and guitarist Freddy Moore co-wrote “Changing” with his then-wife, Demi Moore.

Specs haven't been revealed yet, but the release will include Commentary track by director Rafael Zielinski, Featurettes with production manager Ken Gord and producer Maurice Smith, and both versions of the film including the International cut in its entirety, with 10 extra minutes of footage trimmed from the U.S. version.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.95.
