Joe Dante's 'The Howling' Getting a 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Release in the UK for the film's 40th Anniversary!

Director Joe Dante‘s 1981 horror classic The Howling, one of the greatest werewolf flicks ever made, is celebrating its 40th birthday this year and our good friends over at Studiocanal just informed us that the film will be getting a stunning 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray release in the UK on October 25th, 2021. We have bonus feature details and a look at the packing for you (above/below), including a direct link to pre-order the home video release RIGHT HERE!

Imagine your worst fear a reality with this brand new 4K 40th anniversary restoration of The Howling, approved by Director Joe Dante (Gremlins). With ground-breaking special effects by Rob Bottin (The Thing, The Fog, Total Recall), The Howling has been stunningly restored for a new generation of horror fans. Graphically violent, sexually explicit and nightmarishly intense, it remains one of the most original werewolf movies of the eighties.

SynopsisAfter an intense confrontation with a serial killer, news anchor Karen White (Dee Wallace) is left traumatised and suffering from amnesia. In need of recovery, Karen takes refuge within “The Colony”, a country retreat organised by her psychiatrist Dr Waggner (Patrick Macnee). But things at “The Colony” aren’t as idyllic as they originally seemed and as blood curdling screams break the midnight silence, Karen’s memories slowly begin to come into focus.
