Good news for anyone curious to see the original ending to the Elijah Wood starring Cooties (review). Although, the original ending is apparently considered to be inferior to the current one, I’ve still been awfully curious to judge for myself and when the flick releases on home video, we will get the chance to do so. Cooties will be releasing on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD from LionsGate December 1st.
Cooties is produced by Elijah Wood’s production company SpectreVision (formerly known as Woodshed). With the exception of Leigh Whannell, the rest of the creative team is fairly new to feature filmmaking. Cooties is directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott. This picture marks their first feature film directorial effort. The script in co-penned by Insidious 3 director Leigh Whannell and Ian Brennan. Cooties marks Brennan’s first feature film writing credit.
Cooties‘ ensemble cast includes Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, Jack McBrayer, Leigh Whannell, Nasim Pedrad, Ian Brennan and Jorgé Garcia.
Cooties takes place at a rural primary school that is struck by a strange virus which turns its students into little monsters. The faculty must band together to formulate a plan if they stand any hope of survival. Led by an unexpected hero, the staff works together to take on the little creeps that are keen to make a snack out of their teachers.
