I remember when I was little I saw a random cover for a movie with kids in it. I remember renting it, and watching the little toy-like specimens snotting all over the place and for some reason sewing clothes (I might be wrong on that, but this is what I recall)? I also remember I loved every second of it. Maybe age has changed my opinion of The Garbage Pail Kids, but this is still a great gem to own on Blu-ray. Scream Factory (or SHOUT!, if you will) are releasing a collector’s edition of the classic, with a good lot of special features that are as follows:
- NEW The Effects of the Garbage Pail Kids Movie – interviews with special makeup effects creator John Carl Buechler and makeup effects artist Gino Crognale
- NEW On the Set – an interview with first assistant director Thomas A. Irvine
- NEW The Artful Dodger – an interview with actor Mackenzie Astin
- NEW The Kids Aren’t All Right – interviews with Garbage Pail Kids actors Arturo Gil (Windy Winston) and Kevin Thompson (Ali Gator)
- Theatrical Trailer
It looks fantastic and the timing is great with the nostalgia wave in full force. You can pre-order from this little link (or Amazon – if you prefer) and enjoy a great but not-so-great to watch with popcorn flick on December 8th.
