Today we have more spectacular news coming from the fine folks over at Shout! Factory. They have announced a Bluray/DVD combo set for the slightly rare Sam Raimi film Crimewave.

It seems that the special features are currently in development, but I’m positive that Shout! Factory will stand and deliver with this release. Raimi fans are bound to be excited by this news. I know that I am! For the rest of the press information, read on.

Synopsis: In a nod to film noir, the head of a security systems company is bumped off by two gonzo exterminators who have gone from stomping out pesky varmints to stomping out human targets. The exterminators go after the partner who hired them and his blatantly obnoxious wife (Louise Lasser) and, in the meantime, frame a poor security guard (Reed Birney) for the murder of the company boss.
