Classic 1980's Horror on Blu-Ray
Scream Factory is just hitting it out of the park lately.
After their recent Blu-Ray release of Invaders From Mars, they just doubled down by dropping a Class of 1984 Collector's edition, and a Ghoulies/Ghoulies II double-feature.
'84 is an awesome cult classic that teaches an important (and relevant) lesson about the perils of teaching at inner-city schools full of splatter punks. It laid the foundation for the documentary Class of 1999, that gives us a historical look back on the year all inner-city school teachers were replaced with vicious androids.
Ghoulies is an awesome cult classic that teaches an important (and relevant) lesson about the risks of accidentally summoning creepy Muppets while you try to communicate with Satan. Ghoulies II has more of those Muppets.
I picked up the DVD version of the Ghoulies pack on the by-and-by at Walmart during a Black Friday some years ago. I'm glad to see I'll be able to snag an enhanced Blu-Ray on a subsequent Black Friday.
