WEREWOLF WOMAN from Raro Video Coming October 28th to Blu-ray

Having had the pleasure of enjoy Werewolf Woman on the big screen (or perhaps sleeping through some of it if truth be told), I'm glad to report that we will be seeing it released on Blu-ray from Raro Video later this month. That means it should have a nice booklet, look good and be eligible for some of the fantastic spot sales Raro offers from time to time.  Knowing that Chris Alexander of Fango is the one at the helm of the booklet is great news. His introductions and essays are solid.
I am excited to not watch this movie in the wee hours of the morning as it was shown really late during the Exhumed Films Horrorthong.

Full release notes from Raro Video/Kino Lorber.

NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 15, 2014 - Raro Video and Kino Lorber are pleased to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of Rino Di Silvestro's Italian horror classic WEREWOLF WOMAN on October 28th -- just in time for Halloween! This release marks the first time that this Italian horror classic has been released on Blu-ray.

This new HD transfer, digitally restored with a new and improved English subtitle translation, comes packed with special features including a video interview with director Rino Di Silvestro, the original Italian trailer, the original English trailer, and to top it off, a fully illustrated booklet by Chris Alexander of Fangoria Magazine, detailing the genesis and production of the film. The SRP for the Blu-ray is $34.95 and the SRP for the DVD is $29.95.

A favorite of director Quentin Tarantino, WEREWOLF WOMAN is a psychological horror film about a young woman, mentally unstable and dealing with sexual abuse, who imagines she is the reincarnation of a dead ancestor who just happened to be a werewolf! Before long, she is seducing men and turning into a werewolf and tearing them to shreds, but when she meets the man whom she believes could be her true love, she is ready to leave her troubled past behind.

This erotic and gruesome Eurohorror classic is presented here in a remastered in HD transfer that does justice to its unique visual style and to the work of its director, Rino Di Silvestro.
