UPDATE: Cinespectral has cancelled this release as well as their ELVIRA release.
The announcement of Cinespectral’s delay of their upcoming Blu-ray of ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK yielded some very good news I have to share.
Fans of HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN, take note and rejoice! The 1988 cult-classic starring the legendary Roddy Piper is coming to Blu-ray thanks to Cinespectral, who will issue the film in a Limited Collector’s Edition 2-Disc Set! It will be available June 19th.
Much like ELVIRA, the FROGTOWN set comes region-free and with more than one design for the Mediabooks. Design A is the one you see above, while below you can see Design B:
