Today Shout! Factory announced the upcoming release of what could arguably be one of the oddest (worst?) movies of the ’80s, The Garbage Pail Kids Movie. Now wait, I’m not bashing Shout! Factory here, I’m just saying that this was not a crown jewel of a movie. It even led to Parents Groups protesting it and got CBS to pull the animated TV series before its debut here in the U.S.
But that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have a place in your Blu-ray/DVD collection. I’m a huge fan of bad cheesy films, my wife reminds me of this fact all the time. So why not turn this into a gem and make it something proud to own? I say go for it. The Garbage Pail Kids Movie Collector’s Edition Blu-ray has insightful bonus content, including new interviews with special makeup effects creator and artist, cast and crew.
Also included with the movie are bonus features that include:
- NEW The Effects of the Garbage Pail Kids Movie – interviews with special makeup effects creator John Carl Buechler and makeup effects artist Gino Crognale
- NEW On the Set – an interview with first assistant director Thomas A. Irvine
- NEW The Artful Dodger – an interview with actor Mackenzie Astin
- NEW The Kids Aren’t All Right – interviews with Garbage Pail Kids actors Arturo Gil (Windy Winston) and Kevin Thompson (Ali Gator)
- Theatrical Trailer
