Today, June 17, Scream Factory announced this afternoon via Facebook that they are releasing the 1976 horror film, "Squirm." This is the first time the film will be released on Blu-Ray for US and Canadian audiences.

They shared no details on extras, but reported that the film will be in their "Collector's Edition" series, and that the artwork will be revealed soon. They also shared that expect the exact street date and pre-order links to go up sometime next month, though they said that it should be out sometime in October.

"Squirm," is a nature strikes back movie that was directed by Jeff Lieberman. The film starred Don Scardino, Patricia Pearcy, Jean Sullivan, William Newman, and Fran Higgins. It's bloodthirsty worms attacking townspeople in Georgia. It seemed that in the 1970s, horror with the sub-genre, nature turns on man was a popular subject. "Willard," "Frogs," were just a few that came out around that time.

The film currently holds a 30% with critics and a 25% with audiences on Rotten Tomatoes. While it's low, people still love how bad it is, and its cult status.

So once again Scream Factory will be releasing the movie sometime in October on Blu-Ray and DVD.
