It’s time to unleash our primal animal nature and succumb to the unbridled cravings for a generous dose of suspense, unspeakable desires and good old-fashioned horror storytelling! On January 21, 2014, Scream Factory is proud to present the provocative 1982 thriller Cat People Collector’s Edition Blu-ray. Directed by Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull), this memorable cult hit is a remake of 1942 Jacque Tourneur horror noir classic. The all-star cast includes Nastassja Kinski (Tess, Savior), Malcolm McDowell ( A Clockwork Orange), John Heard (Prison Break, The Sopranos), Annette O’Toole (48 hrs), and features music by Giorgio Morotor (Top Gun, Flash Dance) with the “Cat People” theme sung by legendary artist David Bowie.

For the first time ever on Blu-ray, this definitive collector’s edition of Cat People features anamorphic widescreen movie presentation and is packed with a bounty of special bonus content, a collectible cover featuring newly rendered retro-style artwork, a reversible wrap with original theatrical key art and more!

Also arriving in stores everywhere on January 21, 2014, Scream Factory invites collectors and movie aficionados to dive into the horror classic Die Monsters Die (a.k.a. Monster of Terror). A film by Daniel Haller (The Dunwich Horror) and starring original “Frankenstein” Boris Karloff, Nick Adams (Invasion of Astro-Monster) and Suzan Farmer (Dracula: Prince of Darkness , 1966), this entertaining, quirky cinema classic is a loose adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s short story “The Colour Out of Space.”

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.

Special Features Include: New interviews with writer/director Paul Schrader, Nastassja Kinski, Malcolm McDowell, John Heard, Annette O’Toole , Lynn Lowry and composer Giorgio Moroder, Theatrical Trailer, Still Gallery.
