Holy Crap!


The much sought after Eddie and the Cruisers is coming to Blu-ray April 14th! When I worked in a video store this was one of the most asked for titles along with Convoy. I myself was always looking for this on hard to find DVD. I could not be any happier that it comes from the studio that knows what we (Ok I) want. Boy I love you Shout Factory. I wore out the soundtrack on cassette I think twice!

This will be a blind buy for me and added rather quickly to my collection.

Eddie And The Cruisers

They say rock 'n' roll never dies, but one dark night in 1963, Eddie Wilson's car took a dive off a Jersey bridge with the troubled rock idol at the wheel. His body was never found. Tom Berenger (Platoon), Michael Pare (Streets of Fire) and Ellen Barkin (Sea of Love) star in this cool, compelling classic that really rocks!

Twenty years after the lead singer (Pare) of "Eddie and the Cruisers" disappeared, the band's songs are hotter than ever. And renewed interest in the band leads TV reporter Maggie Foley (Barkin) to pursue a tantalizing mystery: What if Eddie is still alive? The circumstances surrounding his death are just shadowy enough to make it a distinct possibility, and someone (could it be Eddie?) has been ransacking the homes of the surviving band members in a desperate search for tapes of the group's visionary, never-released album. As Maggie interviews the former "Cruisers," the pieces of the puzzle start to fit... but only until still deeper mysteries begin to surface.



Eddie And The Cruisers II

The Legend. The Music. The Man. Get ready to rock! Michael Pare reprise his role as the hot-blooded rebel rocker Eddie Wilson - who after twenty years - still has "the kind of charisma that drives adolescent girls wild" (L.A. Herald-Examiner).

At the height of fame, rock legend Eddie Wilson (Pare) drove his car into the river and disappeared from the limelight. Twenty years later his band Eddie and the Cruisers is hotter than ever. Posing as construction worker Joe West, Eddie has maintained a quiet life in Canada. But his relentless desire to make music pulls him back to the stage where he forms a new band and an even hotter sound. Meanwhile, to cash in on the revived interest in the band, Satin records executives release an Eddie and the Cruisers "lost tapes" album and promote a worldwide search for the mysterious rocker. As his new band hits center stage, Eddie finally faces the past - his way.
