The 1976 cult classic will be unearthed on Blu-ray this October.
In an early announcement to retailers, Scream Factory will be releasing 'Squirm' on Blu-ray on October 28.
It was a violent summer storm. Millions of volts slashed the earth, sending hundreds of thousands of writhing, seething creatures, oozing out of the mire hungry for human flesh. It was the night of the crawling terror for the residents of Fly Creek in the 1976 horror cult classic SQUIRM from celebrated horror filmmaker Jeff Lieberman (Just Before Dawn, Blue Sunshine). This sought-after creature thriller stars Don Scardino (director, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, 30 Rock), Patricia Pearcy (Delusion), R.A. Dow and Jean Sullivan (Escape in the Desert) and features gory make-up effects from Oscar®-winning artist Rick Baker (An American Werewolf in London, Planet of the Apes, The Wolfman).
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless mono soundtrack, and supplements include: Audio Commentary by Writer/Director Jeff Lieberman; NEW - EUREKA! – a look at where the idea for SQUIRM came from with Jeff Lieberman; NEW – DIGGING IN - interviews with writer/director Jeff Lieberman and actor Don Scardino; Theatrical Trailer; TV Spot; and Still Gallery.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.93.
