Update: I’m not entirely certain whether or not this will be a region free version of the release.
From The Press Release:
Arrow Video is pleased to announce the UK Blu-ray & DVD debut of Jeff Liebermann’s cult-horror classic SQUIRM on Monday 23rd September. Lovingly restored for Blu-ray, a process approved by Lieberman himself, Arrow’s HD presentation of SQUIRM is uncut and comes loaded with special features and bonus material, including interchangeable artwork and exclusive writing on the film by UK horror aficionado Kim Newman. One of the most original and entertaining of the revenge-of-nature films that characterized mid-1970s American horror, SQUIRM begins with a pylon being downed by a thunderstorm, sending millions of volts into the wet, conductive mud, giving its hundreds of thousands of wriggly inhabitants an insatiable hunger for human flesh. Since the fallen power lines have also cut-off the electricity supply to Fly Creek, Georgia, its population could hardly be more vulnerable as the sun goes down… Houses can be barricaded against most intruders, but what happens when the things you’re trying to keep out are small enough to get into the water supply?!
