This has us suuper excited. Sure there is a great Cujo Blu-Ray already out there by Lionsgate but shit man, Ticks is coming to Blu-Ray! That is epic!. Read on for the details.
Olive Films’ release of Ticks is being billed as a “20th Anniversary Edition” even though it could just as easily be touted as “First-Time Ever on…” seeing how the underrated film has never received a proper DVD release, let alone Blu-ray.
Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 director Tony Randel helmed this skin-crawling creature feature about mutant ticks that infest the adorable Ami Dolenz (Blood Wings: Pumpkinhead 2), a pre-“Family Guy”/”Robot Chicken”/Austin Powers Seth Green, “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” co-star Alfonso Ribeiro, Children of the Corn 2: The Final Sacrifice survivor Rosalind Allen, Tom Hanks’ “Bosom Buddies” better half Peter Scolari, and the living legend that is Clint Howard.
A group of troubled teenagers are led by social workers on a California wilderness retreat, not knowing that the woods they are camping in have become infested by mutated, blood-sucking ticks.
No word yet on disc specs or special features other than a commentary track with director Tony Randel and maybe a cast member.
