Excellent extra's for this Collector's Release
January 3, 2018
This review is for the Collector's Edition of 'The Howling' released by Shout!Factory.
I'm not going to go into the details of the plot on this one. It's very well known and if you are looking to buy this you have probably seen it and if not there are plenty of other reviews.
I'm giving this 5 stars simply because the extra's are superb. They by themselves make this a 5 star release. Anything you can possibly want to know about this movie is included. There are commentaries, documentaries, deleted scenes and outtakes, trailers and photo galleries. Also included is one of my favorite types of extra's. This is a look at the locations used the way the looked then and today. Very few releases do this sort of thing and it is always very interesting.
I hadn't watched this movie since it came out in the early 80's. At the time, I thought the transformation scenes were better than 'An American Werewolf in London.' Today I think differently but the transformation was still pretty spectacular when you factor in that no CGI was used.
Anyway, if you are a fan of this movie then you will want this release.
