'Camel Spiders' Infest Blu-ray

Posted Fri Jan 20, 2012 at 08:00 AM PST by

Roger Corman will be giving Blu-ray the creepy-crawlies at the end of March.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on 'Camel Spiders' for Blu-ray on March 27.

From master creature feature maker Roger Corman comes a spine-chilling tale about the ultimate skin-crawlers: 'Camel Spiders!' Starring Brian Krause ('Cyrus: Mind of a Serial Killer,' “Charmed,” 'Sleepwalkers'), GiGi Ernata ('Risen,' 'Crossed') and C. Thomas Howell, ('The Outsiders,' 'The Hitcher,' 'The Amazing Spider-Man').

To science, they are known as “solifugae.” They can grow up to one foot in length. Stories about these seemingly mythic creatures started surfacing when U.S. soldiers encountered them in the first Gulf War. Google™ “camel spiders” and for anyone with even a hint of arachnophobia, you’ll find videos and pictures of an eight-legged, true life nightmare. Thank goodness they’re thousands of miles away...or are they?

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and there doesn't appear to be any supplements.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
