Blu-ray Release: Toy Story of Terror!

August 19, 2014

Toy Story of Terror! Blu-ray

Today, Disney and Pixar are releasing last year’s TV special Toy Story of Terror! on Blu-ray.  When the toys get stranded at a spooky roadside motel where Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles) mysteriously goes missing, Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), Jessie (Joan Cusack) and Rex (Wallace Shawn) are forced to confront their fears and find him, with a little help from Combat Carl (Carl Weathers).

Despite the short running time, Toy Story of Terror! packs every second with smart humour and even a few twists, as the beautifully animated backgrounds add a nice sense of atmosphere.  With great characters and a sharp screenplay, this is a perfectly plotted and breathlessly entertaining riff on classic horror films, that provides excellent Halloween fun and is well worth adding to your collection.

The Blu-ray includes commentary, deleted scenes, a featurete on the production and several vintage toy commercials.  Also included are three Toy Story Toons (Small Fry, Hawaiian Vacation and Partysaurus Rex).

Toy Story of Terror! is 22 minutes and rated G.
