Cult Classic 1987 Monster Flick ‘The Kindred’ Finally Comes to Blu-Ray!

The Kindred

We are extremely excited to bring our readers of Dark Universe the following announcement! We have just learned that Stephen Carpenter and Jeffrey Obrow’s cult classic 1987 creature feature horror flick The Kindred is finally heading to Blu-Ray and DVD courtesy of Synapse Films.

Synapse’s Don May revealed the following to EW today.

About ten years ago, we announced The Kindred,” he told the site. “We had purchased it and it got entangled in a horrible legal battle. It was no fault of ours, we just had to hold tight until everything was finalized.

He continued, “Almost ten years later, I can now say that, yes, we are doing The Kindred, finally, for 2018. While we didn’t spend four years restoring it, it took us ten years to get out of all the legal mess to finally announce it again, ten years later. I could probably write a book as to what happened with The Kindred. [Laughs] We’ll do The Kindred on Blu-ray and DVD, because honestly it’s never been legally available on Blu-ray or DVD in the U.S. So, we’ll be the first company to actually release it.

I can also say that our version of The Kindred actually has more gore in it than the original U.S. version had. We ended up finding material which has extra gore which hasn’t been released here.

No release date has been confirmed at present, but you can expect The Kindred to hit sometime in 2018.
