The 1987 rock ‘n’ roll comedy adventure Dudes is heading to Blu-ray from Shout! Factory’s Shout Select line on October 10! Dudes [Collector’s Edition] contains new interviews with Jon Cryer, Flea, and Daniel Roebuck as conducted by director Penelope Spheeris, as well as new interviews with Catherine Mary Stewart, writer J. Randal Johnson, and producer Miguel Tejada-Flores. Additional extras include the theatrical trailer, still gallery, and a vintage featurette: Making of Dudes.
Urban angst meets the Wild West when three NYC punks (Jon Cryer of Pretty in Pink, Daniel Roebuck of River’s Edge, and Flea of Suburbia and the Red Hot Chili Peppers) on a road trip to California cross paths with a vicious gang and their psycho leader (Lee Ving, Streets of Fire and Fear). Aided by a pistol-packin’ knockout (Catherine Mary Stewart, Night of the Comet), a daredevil Elvis Presley impersonator (Pete Willcox), and mystical spirits of the past, they relentlessly pursue the gang to an epic, hallucinogenic, final showdown.
Directed by critically acclaimed filmmaker Penelope Spheeris (The Decline of Western Civilization, Suburbia, Wayne’s World), Dudes blasts a killer soundtrack featuring The Vandals, The Little Kings, Keel, Jane’s Addiction and Steve Vai.
