Sean Cunningham’s ‘The New Kids’ Being Released on Blu-ray in VHS Packaging

Five years after changing the game with Friday the 13th, Sean Cunningham directed The New Kids, an ’80s gem finally being released onto Blu-ray this year by Mill Creek.

Paying homage to its ’80s arrival, the Blu-ray will feature retro VHS packaging!

In The New Kids:

“Abby McWilliams’ nightmare begins when she attracts the unwanted attention of teenage psychopath Eddie Dutra. Turned down for a date, Eddie destroys Abby’s home, vandalizes her uncle’s car and nearly stomps her brother to death. But it’s only when he kidnaps Abby from the school dance, that Eddie shows his true feelings. Fueled by cocaine and armed with a shotgun, Eddie’s lust turns to uncontrollable rage, as he takes Abby on a date from hell, in this terror-packed thrill-ride from the director of Friday the 13th.”

James Spader, Lori Loughlin, Shannon Presby and Eric Stoltz star in the film.

You can pre-order your copy today. It’s set for release on August 13th.
