    Looks like the original post of this was lost, but the Indiegogo campaign for this release has less than 2 weeks to go. In the time since the original post vanished, there has been a special episode of The Projection Booth podcast focusing on the documentary and the bonus feature career of director Michael Felsher and the first supplements for the release have been announced.

    The Blu-ray will feature the following in addition to the feature-length Creepshow documentary:
    -Audio Commentary with the Director
    -Extended Interviews with Romero, Savini, and more
    -An exclusive episode of Horror's Hallowed Grounds focusing on Creepshow
    -The exclusive Blu-ray debut of Scream Greats Volume 1: Tom Savini (1986)

    I listened to that podcast last week and was inspired to order my copy. It's a really interesting listen even if you're not interested in Creepshow or the documentary. Michael Felsher used to work at Anchor Bay in the early days (when they still cared about releasing quality genre product) and has been involved in many exclusive DVD/BD features over the years.

    I couldn't find any info on what happens if the goal isn't reached. There's only 9 days left and they're not even at 25% of the $10K so it doesn't look likely they'll reach it.

    This is a pre-order for the Blu-ray. Just like with the recent campaign for The Dead Next Door, which did not reach its listed goal, if you support the campaign you will get your disc.

    It's a "flexible funding" campaign, meaning they get whatever they raise even if they don't meet their goal. And as fattyjoe37 noted, it's basically a glorified pre-order, but the more they raise the more you will potentially get on the disc.

    Thanks for the info, guys. From the podcast it sounded like he was releasing this regardless but I've heard of other crowdfunding campaigns that get canceled if the money isn't raised.

    I went ahead and ordered one before the campaign ends. I have the doc (which is great) on the UK Blu-ray already, but this sounds well worth it just for the Tom Savini exclusive and the other exclusive perks. Surprisingly shipping was included, so it was just $25.

    The campaign ends in 22 hours for anybody else who might be interested.

    Yeah I went for it here at the tail end. Too much good stuff and $25 WITH shipping to the US included is definitely worth it.

    Totally agree! If this is in HD, I'm buying!!

    Crap, just realized, like a bunch of you, the campaign is over! They didn't even reach the goal. If they would have told everyone about the extras at first, they might have had more buy in within the horror community. I have the doc on the UK DVD, so I wasn't interested. The Tom Savini Scream Greats made me more interested!

    Campaign's over. But the BD is still happening. I was all for supporting this (even though I have the doc already), but it didn't allow for shipping outside the U.S.

    The campaign was open for at least 2 months, so there was ample time. It didn't reach the goal, but as the campaign details made clear it's going ahead as planned regardless of that goal not being reached.
