John Carpenter’s ‘Village of the Damned’ Blu-ray Cover Art Unveiled

Beware the children! Scream Factory has announced new details of another classic John Carpenter film to be added their already robust collection of the master’s work, as the 1995 remake Village of the Damned will be coming to Blu-ray in the U.S. and North America for the first time on April 12th.

 The film stars Christopher Reeve (Superman), Kirstie Alley (Cheers), Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Linda Kozlowski (Crocodile Dundee), Michael Pare (Eddie and the Cruisers), and Meredith Salenger (Dream a Little Dream).

Extras are still in progress and will be announced in full at a later date, but the bonus features confirmed so far include new interviews with John Carpenter and his wife and the film’s producer Sandy King Carpenter and a brand-new segment of Horror’s Hallowed Grounds with host Sean Clark.

With this official street date announcement also comes the reveal of the newly designed cover key art, which was illustrated by the very talented Nathan Thomas Milliner. The original theatrical key art will be on the reverse wrap, as on most of Scream Factory’s Collector’s Edition releases.

If you order directly through Scream Factory (click here) you will also receive a free limited-edition 18” x 24” poster with your purchase (and while supplies last).
