“The Wolfman” Available for Pre-Order on DVD & Blu-ray, Out June 1st

A. Quinton — Apr. 9th 2010

If you’d like to watch Lawrence Talbot do terrible things over and over from the comfort of your own home, you’re in luck: Director’s Cut DVD and Director’s Cut super-bonus-feature Blu-ray editions of “The Wolfman” are available for pre-order now, and will be released on June 1st. In addition to the director’s cut of the film, the DVD version contains the theatrical cut and deleted / extended scenes. The Blu-ray version contains all of that too, plus

  • Five featurettes: Return of The Wolfman, The Beast Maker, Transformation Secrets, The Wolfman Unleashed, Werewolf Legacy, Lore and Legend
  • A “Take Control” feature with Makeup Artist Rick Baker, Visual Effects Producer Karen Murphy-Mundell and Director of Photography Shelly Johnson
  • A digital copy of the film (no doubt encumbered with DRM)
  • A copy of the original 1941 “Wolf Man” movie

I want to mention that every site I’ve seen mention these home releases has felt obligated to include a few shitty editorial comments about how “disappointing” this movie was. Even the official review Amazon is running moans about “bland computer-generated werewolves”. Sorry this movie didn’t blow the doors off Schindler’s List and the first three Indiana Jones movies, guys. It’s a bloody werewolf movie.

    Definitely going to spring for the Blu-Ray on this one. I am so pleased (and surprised) that they’re including so many extras.

    I don’t get all the negative reviews either. I thought it was a damn entertaining movie.

    I can’t wait for it. Fuck the critics. They hated the original and AWiL too. They don’t know jack.

  • I’ll be getting this on Blu-Ray as well when it comes out. I took my mother to see it and we both loved it. I was jumpy for 2 days afterwards because of all the “BOO!” moments, but I’m kind of a wuss when it comes to scary movies. *embarassed*

    I was resisting getting a blu-ray player, but now it seems that it will be a requirement in the future. I don’t want to miss out on some of these extras but hate to pay blu-ray prices. The extra HD is lost on me. Oh well, gotta have this werewolf movie!

  • ArcLight

    The movie was definitely good enough for me. Considering all the behind-the-scenes crap it came out bloody excellent. Remember the last couple of big-screen werewolf movie? Tell me this wasn’t world’s above CURSED and SKINWALKERS.

    No Blu-ray player yet, but I might spring for that version too, just so I’ll have it when I finally go Blu.

    If you don’t want a blu-ray player, just get a PS3. DVD/Blu-Ray, plus gaming console. Only 300 bucks for it all.
