SANTA MONICA, CA (September 28, 2015) – School lunches will forever be tainted after the disturbing and hilarious Cooties arrives on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and Digital HD December 1 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The “funny, gory and brilliant” (dallasmoviescreenings.com) film is currently available On Demand.
