Creepshow: 2-Disc SE Specs & Artwork
September 3, 2007
Generally, I always hear, "You guys get all of the cool stuff in the States," whenever it comes to toys or events or signings...whatever.
DVDs? Those across the pond in the UK shouldn't be complaining. They get the box sets with swank packaging (viva la "Phantasm" sphere DVD set!), now they get a 2-disc 25th anniversary edition of George A. Romero's Creepshow. The set hits stores in the UK on October 22nd and Universal Pictures was kind enough to shoot us a look at the slipcase packaging art.
The exhaustive seven-part documentary included in the presentation, and produced by Michael Felsher, is broken down like this...
