The legendary Super 8 splatter fest from 1986, The Abomination, is getting a Blu-ray release for the very first time thanks to the folks at Visual Vengeance. Check out the trailer for the release below! The Abomination will release on Blu-ray on September 26th, 2023.

Here’s a synopsis for The Abomination.

Deep in the heart of rural Texas, a TV evangelist exorcises a tumor from the body of a loyal worshipper, who soon coughs up the growth. Unknown to her, the cancer is actually a carnivorous life form that slithers its way into her son Cody while he sleeps, growing inside him until he is completely under its control. Now Cody must feed the beast fresh victims to keep them both alive, as the monster grows out larger and larger, threatening to feast on everyone in its path.
One of the most requested titles for Blu-ray release from the video store era, Bret McCormicks’s The Abomination enjoys its first ever release on Blu-ray with newly created bonus features and never before seen outtakes, behind the scenes footage, images and more!
