“Ginger Snaps” and “Dog Soldiers” to get the Scream Factory treatment

A. Quinton — Nov. 19th 2013

Someone at Scream Factory really likes werewolf movies! This past Saturday, the horror imprint of Shout! Factory (which I like to think of as the Criterion of horror) announced on Facebook that they’ve signed a deal which will see them release collector’s editions of two top-shelf werewolf films from the early 2000’s: Ginger Snaps and Dog Soldiers. Here’s hoping these releases aren’t hampered by bureaucratic snags like the music industry bullshit that wrecked Scream Factory’s oft-lamented Werewolf TV series release (yes, I’m still bitter about that). There are no more details beyond the existence of the deal and a “summer 2014” release date, but that’s still more than enough reason to execute a small dance, high-five a stranger or perform the happiness-gesture of your choice. Follow Scream Factory on Twitter for more info, or read about it on this very site as it becomes available. Thanks to Werewolf News reader Sam for the heads-up!

Dog Soldiers & Ginger Snaps

    Ohhhhhh myyyyy GOOOOOOOD!

    YES!

    Glad I haven’t posted a Full Moon Feature on Ginger Snaps yet; now I can do so in tandem with this release.

  • Inkshooter

    You haven’t done Dog Soldiers either, no?

  • Hooded Justice

    I did, actually, to kick off the Summer of Syfy. If Werewolf News were to somehow get review copies, though, I would gladly look at it afresh.

    Good! Dog Soldiers I don’t care for, but Ginger Snaps really deserved something better than the bare bones US release, so hopefully this disc will have some special features and commentary and that other good stuff.

    I’m still bitter about the Werewolf tv series, too. So, so bitter.

  • Inkshooter

    Yeah, we really got shafted on the DVD. Let’s see, we have the movie, and… the trailer. Not even a scene selection menu. I mean, the sequels have more content than that on the disc.

    I hope Katharine Isabelle does commentary, she’s absolutely hilarious in all the interviews of her that I’ve read. As far as I know, the only commentary she’s done before is for American Mary, which she wasn’t even there for, she was using Skype to talk to the Soska sisters while they were recording the track.

    If they could somehow manage to put a little stuffed werewolf or keychain in the DVD set . . . . heh, that would make my day.
