Willard With Crispin Glover Arrives On Blu-ray In February.

Rarely do I get excited about a remake of a horror film. Why remake something when the original is legendary? And then a filmmaker comes up with a twist that makes you ignore the original such as what if we cast Crispin Hellion Glover as the lead? Who better to lead a pack of rats? That’s exactly what was done with the remake of Willard. And that’s why it’s as original as the original. Now Crispin’s version of Willard is coming to Blu-ray with fresh bonus features on February 26. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:

“Wonderfully deranged.” – The Boston Globe
