Announced earlier today, the Alien-meets-Jaws-meets-Creature from the Black Lagoon cult classic from 1980, Humanoids from the Deep, is now officially a “Scream Factory”-branded title as they present it in a new Blu-ray Steelbook packaging! Swimming its way to store shelves this Summer.
The release will feature a new 4K scan of the uncut international version of the film from the original camera negative. All bonus features from the prior Blu-ray release will be ported over as well. Only 5,000 units of the steelbook are being produced total. When they’re gone, they’re gone!
In the film, "Something evil is happening in the sleepy fishing village of Noyo. Fish-like humanoid creatures, spawned by mutant DNA, begin rising from the ocean looking to spawn with the local women. Scientist Susan Drake (Ann Turkel), along with local fisherman Jim Hill (Doug McClure), looks for the cause of this invasion of creatures from the ocean floor. When the annual Salmon Festival begins, some unwanted guests are about to crash the festivities."
Humanoids from the Deep features an early score from Academy Award–winning composer James Horner (Avatar, Braveheart) and special effects/creature designs by Academy Award winner Rob Bottin (RoboCop, The Thing).
The artwork you see pictured below comes to us from by artist Laz Marquez (who also illustrated Scream Factory's prior steelbooks The Howling, Lifeforce and Army of Darkness). If you order directly from Scream Factory, your packaging will also include an exclusive 28.5” x 16.5” rolled lithograph of the illustration. (The litho will not be available elsewhere and only 1,500 of them each are being made).
Official street date is July 30th for U.S. and Canada territories (Region A). Pre-order today!
