Scream Factory’s CAT PEOPLE & DIE MONSTER DIE! Detailed!

Cat-People-Die-Monster-DieOn the day following my birthday, Scream Factory will be treating us to two very different vintage horror films. We first take it back to one of Scream Factory’s favorite periods, the 80s.   A ‘Collectors Edition’ of Paul Scrader’s cult classic, erotic horror remake of Cat People.  This title was one of their big SDCC announcements from last summer.  The film stars the likes of Natassja Kinski, Malcolm McDowell, Ed Begley Jr., John Larroqutte and very young and very fine Annette O’Toole.  The other release is that of the Boris Karloff starring Die Monster Die!  The film is a loose adaptation of a Lovecraft story and has Scream Factory again saving a classic 60s horror film.  Both films are hitting Blu-ray for the first time, with Cat People boasting some brand new interviews done specially for this edition.  You can find the full press release, as well as an Amazon pre-order link below!

Cat People SMALLCAT PEOPLE COLLECTOR’S EDITION BLU-RAY

A remake of the 1942 Jacques Tourneur horror/noir classic, CAT PEOPLE stars Nastassja Kinski as Irena, a beautiful young woman who discovers love for the first time only to find that the experience brings tragic consequences. The tremendous passion of this girl’s first romantic love is so strong, however, it bypasses the chaos around her – including the extraordinary demands of her brother (Malcolm McDowell) – as it pushes her on to her own bizarre destiny. Written and Directed by Paul Schrader , this erotic fantasy about the passion and terror surrounding this first love also stars John Heard, Annette O’Toole, Ruby Dee  and Lynn Lowry.

Die Monster Die SMALLDIE MONSTER DIE BLU-RAY

Boris Karloff, the greatest horror star of all time, takes center stage in this “menagerie of horrors” (Motion Picture Daily) that “spins out shock after shock” (Boxoffice). Like a deadly potion bubbling with eerie mansions, secret experiments and a warning never to look in the basement, this is “pure haunted-house hokum all the way” (Los Angeles Times)!

 An English scientist entertains a young American visitor, serving up tea, terror and a beautiful daughter – who is soon torn between her father’s evil ways and her need to protect the man she loves from a diabolical end.
