'Steve Niles' Remains' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Thu Apr 12, 2012 at 08:00 AM PDT by

A wave of shamblin', gamblin' zombies will invade Blu-ray this July.

In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory will release 'Steve Niles' Remains' on Blu-ray on July 10.

Reno may be the “Biggest Little City in the World,” but when a “Peace Bomb” nuclear test goes awry in the Nevada desert and turns most of the population into bloodthirsty zombies, the gambling Mecca becomes the biggest zombieland of all time in the highly popular apocalyptic thriller 'Steve Niles’ Remains.'

Based on the highly acclaimed IDW Publishing graphic novel written by Steve Niles ('30 Days of Night'), 'Steve Niles’ Remains' is set in a chilling postapocalyptic Reno, Nevada, and follows the survivors of a bizarre accident that reduced most of the world’s population to zombies. The group takes refuge in a vacant casino and fights a losing battle against the undead, who grow steadily stronger, smarter and more aggressive by the minute. The movie stars Grant Bowler ('Killer Elite,' 'True Blood'), Lance Reddick ('Fringe,' 'Lost,' 'The Wire'), Miko Hughes ('Pet Sematary'), Evalena Marie ('Are We There Yet?'), Tawny Cypress ('Rescue Me,' 'Heroes') and Anthony Marks.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Audio commentary, a short prequel: Remains - Road to Reno, bloopers, TV spots and the trailer, and a Comic-Con teaser.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $26.97.
