Fans of Stephen King adaptations have been asking for this one for a while – 1985’s “werewolf terrorizes small town” howl fest Silver Bullet is making it’s long overdue Blu-ray debut. Here’s the rub though – it’s coming from Australian home video company Umbrella Entertainment but, but – it will be a region free release.
So, it should be somewhat achieveable for us here in the states to get our hands on one.
And judging from the list of special features – it’s going to be worth looking for.
- Audio Commentary with Director Daniel Attias
- The Wolf Within — An Interview with Actor Everett McGill
- Full Moon Fever — Interviews with Special Effects Artists Michael McCracken, Jr. and Matthew Mungle
- Dino’s Angel Takes on Lycanthropy: Martha De Laurentis Remembers SILVER BULLET (25 minutes)
- Isolated Score Selections and Audio Interview with Composer Jay Chattaway
- Theatrical trailer (HD)
- TV Spot
- Radio Spot
- Still Gallery
We also know that January will be the month of release – no date though. What we do know though is that the cover art freaking rocks. Simon Sherry created some throwback artwork that according to him is “an homage to the classic King paperback covers” while also “an opportunity to pay tribute to one of my influences, the legendary Bernie Wrightson, who collaborated with King on the source novella, Cycle of the Werewolf.”
Loving this cover art!
