Steve Niles fans eager to see some of the horror-comic scribe's non-30 Days of Night projects get the film treatment were delighted to watch Remains when the film recently debuted on Chiller. Now Remains is hitting DVD and Blu-ray. Check out the details and full cover art after the jump.
Here's the press release we just received from Shout Factory about Steve Niles' Remains: "Reno may be the 'Biggest Little City in the World,' but when a 'Peace Bomb' nuclear test goes awry in the Nevada desert and turns most of the population into bloodthirsty zombies, the gambling Mecca becomes the biggest zombieland of all time in the highly popular apocalyptic thriller Steve Niles' REMAINS. On July 10, 2012, Shout! Factory will unleash the UNCUT edition Blu-ray and DVD of Steve Niles' REMAINS, jam-packed with special bonus content that includes audio commentary, the short film prequel Remains: Road to Reno, bloopers, trailers, Comic-Con teaser, and more! A must have for horror movie fans and zombiephiles, Steve Niles' REMAINS uncut edition Blu-ray is priced to own at $22.99 SRP; the DVD has a suggested retail price of $14.93."
"Based on the highly acclaimed IDW Publishing graphic novel written by Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), Steve Niles' REMAINS is set in a chilling postapocalyptic Reno, Nevada, and follows the survivors of a bizarre accident that reduced most of the world's population to zombies. The group takes refuge in a vacant casino and fights a losing battle against the undead, who grow steadily stronger, smarter and more aggressive by the minute. The movie stars Grant Bowler (Killer Elite, True Blood), Lance Reddick (Fringe, Lost, The Wire), Miko Hughes (Pet Sematary), Evalena Marie (Are We There Yet?), Tawny Cypress (Rescue Me, Heroes) and Anthony Marks."
