Scream Factory have announced that they’ll release John Carpenter Presents Body Bags, a 1993 horror anthology film in the spirit of Creepshow, in a special edition DVD/Blu-ray combo pack on November 12.
According to the press release, the movie, “features John Carpenter as a creepy-looking coroner introducing a trilogy of blood-curdling tales: “The Gas Station” directed by Carpenter and starring Robert Carradine (Revenge of the Nerds) and Alex Datcher (Passenger 57); “Hair” also directed by Carpenter and starring Stacy Keach (The Bourne Legacy); and “Eye,” directed by Tobe Hooper (Poltergeist) and starring Mark Hamill (Star Wars).”
“Young college student Anne ( Datcher) works the late shift at “The Gas Station” while a killer is on the loose. Then, middle-aged business man Richard Coberts (Keach) can’t stand the thought of losing his “Hair” and he’ll do anything to keep it. And finally, Brent Matthews (Hamill), a baseball player submits to an “Eye” transplant after he loses an eye in a car accident. After going through the revolutionary eye surgery, he ends up getting more than just his eye sight back.”
Along with the movie, the John Carpenter Presents Body Bags Collector’s Edition Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack will include the original trailer commentary by Carpenter and Carradine on “The Gas Station,” commentary by Carpenter and Keach on “Hair,” commentary “Eye” by producer Sandy King, and interviews with Carpenter, Keach, Carradine, and King.
