Blu-Ray & DVD New Restoration of Joe Dante’s ‘The Howling’ is Coming to (UK) Blu-Ray Published 2 years ago on August 24, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet We love a good werewolf film here at Dark Universe, especially Joe Dante‘s 80s horror classic The Howling. The film featured some of the most amazing special makeup effects for its time, created by the one and only Rob Botin. Good news for fans in the United Kingdom, we have just been informed that Studiocanal will be bringing a brand new restoration release to Blu-Ray on October 9, 2017. Check out the awesome artwork and bonus contents below, including a pre-order link right here! Directed by Joe Dante (Gremlins) with a screenplay by John Sayles (Lone Star) with groundbreaking 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. Synopsis: “After 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.” SPECIAL FEATURE CONTENTS: Howlings Eternal with Producer Steven A. Lane Cut to Shreds with Editor Mark Goldblatt Interview with Co-writer Terence Winkless Horror’s Hallowed Grounds: A Look at the Film’s Locations Interview with Stop-Motion Animator David Allen Audio Commentary with Author Gary Brandner You can pre-order the Studiocanal release of The Howling from Amazon.co.uk.
