I'm still finding it difficult to believe, but Shout! Factory will be releasing Luigi Cozzi's Starcrash on DVD and high-definition Blu-Ray disc on September 14th.
I've long lamented that there wasn't a good, authorized DVD edition of this personal favorite available, and the thought that in a few months I'll have a copy on Blu-Ray is just so exciting. Ever since I read Cozzi's article about the making of the film in Future magazine (anyone remember that companion mag to Starlog, later known as Future Life?), I've been fascinated with the film, and when I finally saw it on VHS with some friends around 1990, I couldn't believe just how much giddy, shameless, stupid fun it was.
There isn't much I don't love about the movie, to be honest. Caroline Munro is gorgeous, the special effects are psychedelic, the characters so ridiculous... it's pure, rainy Saturday afternoon bliss.
In any case, it looks like it's definitely on the way - Shout! Factory has released the cover art - and the title is already listed at Amazon for pre-order. In fact, you can use the link below to do so, if you're so inclined.
