One of the many Scream Factory titles scheduled to be released this year is Joe Dante's The Howling. The movie will be released as a bonus feature-packed Blu-ray/DVD collector's edition, and we have the first look at the cover art.
A specific release date has not been announced, but Scream Factory expects The Howling to be available this summer. We should have release information, including a list of bonus features, next month.
For those that haven't seen the werewolf classic, it was released in 1981 and stars Dee Wallace, Patrick Macnee, Christopher Stone, and Kevin McCarthy. The movie was directed by Joe Dante before he'd go on to make Gremlins.
"From the director of Gremlins and Piranha comes the ultimate masterpiece of primal terror. Filled with edge-of-your-seat suspense, "genuine thrills [and] amazing special effects" (Us), this riveting werewolf tale sinks its teeth into your deepest fears and never lets go! Severely traumatized by a near-fatal encounter with a serial killer, TV newscaster Karen White (Dee Wallace) takes time off at a secluded retreat called "the Colony." But when, after nights of being tormented by bestial, bloodcurdling cries, Karen ventures into the woods seeking answers, she makes a terrifying discovery. Now she must fight not only for her life but for her soul!"
