When the residents of a luxury apartment complex outside Montreal are infiltrated by parasites and transformed into violent, sex-crazed maniacs, it’s up to Dr. Roger St. Luc to contain the outbreak from spreading to the city at large in a film that “scares and shocks us because it’s so cleverly made” (Roger Ebert).

This press release is confusing: It says it's a 4K UHD Steelbook, but also says it's 1080p. I'm assuming this is just a re-packaging of the previously released Blu-ray, and that "4K UHD" is a typo?

Yeah, that's probably a typo. Good catch.

All of the Lionsgate UHD upgrades -- at least all of the ones I've gotten -- have been UHD/BD combo packs. I don't imagine this is any different. Marketing Department copywriters can get easily confused.
