The 1980 horror film “Alligator“ is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on February 22nd, 2022 via Scream Factory (Shout! Factory), in the form of a “Collector’s Edition” release. The film, directed by Lewis Teague, starred Robert Forster, Robin Riker, Michael V. Gazzo, Dean Jagger, Jack Carter, Sydney Lassick, Perry Lang, and Henry Silva.
The tech specs and bonus materials for the release have not yet been announced, but stay tuned for an update later on. It is known that the release will come in the form of a 3-disc “combo pack” meaning you’ll get a Blu-ray Disc counterpart as well as another Blu-ray likely entirely filled with extras (bonus materials). Across those, you’ll get two different cuts of the film.
UPDATE #1: You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray available for preorder over at Amazon. Also, you can still find the 4K UHD Blu-ray available for preorder directly via ShoutFactory.com for now, where you will receive a poster as an added bonus.
It’s also worth noting that the film’s sequel “Alligator II: The Mutation“ (1991) will be getting a Blu-ray Disc release on February 22nd, 2022 as well, via Scream Factory.
