Scream Factory continues to give classic Hammer Films some well-deserved love, and have this week announced that they're bringing Horror of Dracula director Terence Fisher's The Curse of the Werewolf to Collector's Edition Blu-ray with an all new transfer!
The national street date for North America (Region A) is April 21st, 2020.
The newly commissioned artwork you see pictured below comes to us from artist Mark Maddox (Dracula: Prince of Darkness, Frankenstein Created Woman). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the original theatrical artwork. The Blu-ray will come guaranteed with a slipcover in its first three months of release.
The company notes that, "new extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date (March timing). We can confirm today though that we are proceeding with a new transfer of the film!"
Pre-orders are now available directly from Scream Factory's website. The first 500 orders will receive an exclusive limited-edition 18” x 24” rolled poster of the exclusive new illustration.
"This atmospheric tale of terror stars Oliver Reed (Venom, The Brood) as the orphan of a maniacal beggar and a mute girl. From his birth to young manhood, he discovers a horrible secret. Try as he may, the cursed man is unable to deny the dark force within him. When the moon is full, he becomes an uncontrollable, seemingly unstoppable killer incapable of distinguishing between friend and foe. Spectacular makeup effects and beautifully photographed 19th-century European locales heighten the suspense of this classic tale of horror."
