Eureka Entertainment has announced two horror classics that they're releasing as Limited Edition Blu-rays this October as part of the Eureka Classics range. Fred Dekker’s Night of the Creeps and George A. Romero's Monkey Shines, both presented with a Limited Edition O-Card slipcase and booklet [First print run only]. Available on October 8th.
Night of the Creeps When an alien experiment goes awry, it crashes to Earth in 1959 and infects a young college student. 27 years later, his cryogenically-frozen body is thawed out by fraternity pledges, and the campus is quickly overrun by alien creatures - whose victims come back as zombies! Fred Dekker's supremely enjoyable throwback chiller deftly combines classic horror and sci-fi elements with delicious humour and loving in-jokes. Presented for the first time on Blu-ray and DVD in the UK, this deluxe edition features the original director's cut and a host of special features.

From writer / director George A. Romero, the man who unleashed Night of the Living Dead, comes a terrific psychological thriller that delivers a disturbing message about messing with Mother Nature. Starring Jason Beghe and Janine Turner, this riveting tale is a white-knuckle triumph that doesn't let up! Allan Mann (Jason Beghe) is a bitter, angry and vengeful man ever since an accident left him paralyzed from the neck down. He's fed up with himself and everyone around him. All that changes when he's given Ella, a monkey trained to meet his every need. But when Ella begins anticipating Allan's thoughts, strange and deadly things start happening. And as she stalks and wreaks havoc on Allan's fair-weather girlfriend (Janine Turner), incompetent doctor and meddling mother, Allan realizes he must stop the cunning maniacal creature... before she fully takes over his mind! Kate McNeil, Joyce Van Patten, Stephen Root, John Pankow and Stanley Tucci also star in this riveting thriller from the godfather of modern horror George A. Romero, presented on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition with an array of special features.
