MVD Rewind Collection is giving the 1988 creature feature Ghoulies II a new Blu-ray release, with a 4K UHD possibly following
Last week, we shared the news that the 1985 creature feature Ghoulies (watch it HERE) is getting a Blu-ray and 4K UHD release, courtesy of MVD Rewind Collection, on September 12th. Now we can confirm that MVD Rewind Collection is also giving the 1988 sequel Ghoulies II (watch that one HERE) a new Blu-ray and DVD release on that same date. The company is hoping to give the film a 4K UHD release as well, but they can’t say for sure when that is going to happen.
Albert Band (the father of Full Moon founder Charles Band) directed Ghoulies II from a script by Charlie Dolan and Dennis Paoli, telling the following story: The Ghoulies are back and more devilish than ever, as they turn an unsuspecting carnival into a house of pandemonium in this wildly outrageous sequel to the original smash hit “Ghoulies”! “Satan’s Den” has received its final warning either the not-so-creepy House of Horrors spooks-up its act and scares some customers fast or its gateway to hell will be closed for eternity. Just when Larry Prentice (Damon Martin) and his uncle Ned (Royal Dano) think there’s not a ghost of a chance that the’ll save their show, they get some uninvited visitors to spice things up. The Ghoulies make “Satan’s Den” their home and profits soar as the demonic little creatures wreak havoc on the helpless fairground. So take a ride on the Ghoulie-Go-Round and play some Bumper Ghoulies – enjoy yourself because the Ghoulies will always get you in the end!
MVD Rewind Collection provided the following statement: “I would have loved to announce this on 4K Ultra HD today but due to unforeseen circumstances we are just announcing the MVD Rewind Collector’s Edition Blu-ray of Ghoulies II. Do know, I am working diligently behind the scenes to procure the best materials for a future release of Ghoulies II on 4K Ultra HD format, and in fact, I am keeping the “#3” spot open in the 4K LaserVision Collection for Ghoulies II once we are able to move forward. I’ve always been 100% transparent sharing as much information as I can because as a fellow collector I know how frustrating these things can be. Believe me, I feel your pain. But these title licenses have a ticking clock and it has been a massive undertaking to get Ghoulies, Swamp Thing, Rain Man and others prepped for release, and truth be told, we have to at least get this out while I continue to work behind the scenes on a 4K release of this title.“
MVD Rewind Collection’s Blu-ray release of Ghoulies II contains the following special features:
High Definition (1080p) presentation of the main feature in 1:85.1 aspect ratio (2K scan of the Interpositive overseen by MGM) – LPCM 2.0 Stereo Audio – Optional English, French and Spanish Subtitles – Introduction by Screenwriter Dennis Paoli (HD, 1: 15) – More Toilets, More Terror: The Making of Ghoulies 2 (HD, 16:50) – Under A Magic Moon: Interview with Dennis Paoli (HD, 33:36) – Deleted Scenes (HD, 2:43) – Photo Gallery – Theatrical Trailer (HD, 1:23) – 2-Sided Artwork – Collectible Mini-Poster – Limited Edition Slipcover (First Pressing Only)
