“Werewolf” Series DVD Release Date Pushed Back, Pre-Order + Two Features Announced

Werewolf: The Complete SeriesThe eagerly anticipated 5-DVD release of the Werewolf TV series was originally scheduled for a September 1st release, but now TVShowsOnDVD.com is saying that the date has been pushed back to October 6th. These are the folks who originally broke the story about Werewolf being officially released, so I’m gonna go ahead and trust them on this one.

No word on what caused the delay, but it might be that Shout! Factory wants a bit more time to cram the discs full of extras and features, two of which have been announced: “The Man Who Was Alamo Joe” with actor Lance LeGault, and “To Build A Better Werewolf” with special makeup FX creators Greg Cannom and Gino Crognale.

One last thing, and it might be the best news yet: if you’re like me and you can’t keep your release dates straight, you can pre-order Werewolf: The Complete Series from Amazon for $34.99 US. Is it just me, or is that ridiculously cheap?

Hat-tip to ArcLight for the info.

For $18.00 US, you can secure a figure that has “intense film accurate detail, 12 points of articulation, and sculpted clothing”. It ships in April 2009, just in time for the realease of the film. I don’t know about you, but I’ve already placed a preorder for this sharp little guy, and I’m seriously considering the 12″ version as well.
