The gross-out comedy is now available for pre-order.
In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory is preparing 'The Garbage Pail Kids Movie' for Blu-ray on December 8.
Your favorite grime bandits come to life with all the farts, snot and vomit you can take in this hilarious film full of "gross-out humor" (The New York Times). Based on the wildly popular and irreverent trading cards, 'The Garbage Pail Kids Movie' stars Mackenzie Astin ('Iron Will', 'Wyatt Earp') as a perfectly nice teenager who discovers the Kids...to his great disgust! When Dodger (Astin) accidentally releases the Kids from their magical trash can prison, all smell breaks loose. Despite their offensive personal habits – and attitude problems – Dodger soon becomes fond of the Kids. But when Messy Tessie, Foul Phil, Valerie Vomit and the whole misfit crew join his fight against thuggish bullies, their efforts just might land them behind bars at the State Home for the Ugly! This grossly entertaining cult classic features great makeup effects by John Carl Buechler ('Troll,' 'Dolls,' 'Ghoulies') and co-stars Phil Fondacaro ('Troll,' 'Ghoulies II'), Katie Barberi ('Ferris Bueller's Day Off') and singer/songwriter Anthony Newley ('Doctor Dolittle').
Specs have not been detailed yet, but supplements will include: The Effects of the Garbage Pail Kids Movie – interviews with special makeup effects creator John Carl Buechler and makeup effects artist Gino Crognale; On the Set – an interview with first assistant director Thomas A. Irvine; The Artful Dodger – an interview with actor Mackenzie Astin; The Kids Aren't All Right – interviews with Garbage Pail Kids actors Arturo Gil (Windy Winston) and Kevin Thompson (Ali Gator); and Theatrical Trailer.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.93.
