SHOUT! FACTORY RELEASES ON  BLU-RAY

Following on, from a review I did ("The Beast Within") -- that little latex legend has its Blu-ray release on the 17th of December via Shout! Factory.  Check my review for the synopsis, and as far as I can see, it is an unfortunate bare-bones release, sporting only a few audio commentaries with Tom Holland, Philippe Mora and Paul Clemens.  Those and a trailer.  Ah well, at least it might gather a decent following on Blu-ray.

Meanwhile, Shout! Factory also chucks out "Crawlspace" around the same time and have also released "Saturn 3" earlier this year. 

"Crawlspace," starring a very hammed-up scenery-chewing Klaus Kinski goes a bit like this, “Landlord Karl Gunther (Klaus Kinski , "Nosferatu The Vampyre") seems like a conscientious landlord who looks out for his female tenants. What they don’t know is that he has an elaborate network of crawlspaces that he uses to watch their every move. Can a new prospective renter stop this apartment building’s rapid turnover rate…or will Gunther continue to make a killing?” 

"Saturn 3" (my personal choice out of the two) has Adam (Kirk Douglas) and Alex (Farrah Fawcett), two scientists stationed deep beneath the barren surface of Saturn’s third moon, Titan.  They live together in idyllic isolation in a space-age Eden, seeking new forms of food for an exhausted planet Earth.  Their perfect world is interrupted when Benson (Harvey Keitel) arrives as Saturn goes into eclipse and cuts off communication with the rest of the solar system.  Aided by his ’helper robot’ Hector, James reduces life to one single purpose…survival.  The robot becomes violently unmanageable.  For Adam and Alex, their only hope is to flee, but the homicidal robot stands in their way.  Hector is a fantastic creation for its time and the movie has the staple gloom found in a lot of sci-fi flicks back in the early 80s.


"Saturn 3" gets a commentary by two people who had nothing to do with it, a deleted scene, extra scenes found on the TV version, and an interview with the effects guy, Colin Chilvers.   "Crawlspace" has a commentary with the director, David Schmoeller and an interesting sounding short film Please Kill Mr. Kinski by the director.

Perhaps the best is a new release on Blu-ray for "Cat People" coming next year.  It includes a free poster and all new interviews with the director, Paul Schrader, stars Nastassja Kinski, Malcolm McDowell and music composing excellence himself, Giorgio Moroder.


Similar to the U.K.'s Arrow, Shout Factory put out some nifty artwork for their releases, but if any gripe can be found is a 90% lack of extras.  Still, it's good to see these titles have a vamp-up for today's market of collectors.  Also coming soon is "Darkman," and "Bad Dreams," coupled with "Visiting Hours," "Night of the Demons," and "My Little Pony: Classic Movie Collection."
