'Werewolf: The Beast Among Us' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Fri Jul 27, 2012 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The all-new, action-packed thriller will stalk Blu-ray this October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios says 'Werewolf: The Beast Among Us' will have a Blu-ray release on October 9.

During his studies with the local doctor (Stephen Rea, 'Interview with the Vampire'), Daniel (Guy Wilson, 'Little Black Book') witnesses the horrific consequences of werewolf attacks. Watching as the beast's fearsome reputation draws bounty hunters, thrill seekers, and charlatans to the tiny town, Daniel dreams of destroying the ruthless predator. So when a mysterious stranger (Ed Quinn, 'Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation') and his team of skilled werewolf hunters (Stephen Bauer, 'Scarface,' Adam Croasdell, 'The Prince & Me 3: A Royal Honeymoon') arrive to pursue the monster, he offers to join them, despite his mother's (Nia Peeples, 'Blues Brothers 2000') protests. But it soon becomes clear that this creature is stronger, smarter, and more dangerous than anything they have faced before. As casualties mount and villagers see their neighbors transformed into ravening monsters, the townsfolk take up arms against each other to find the true identity of the werewolf. Amid the hysteria, Daniel begins to suspect he's closer to his target than he ever dreamed.

The Blu-ray/DVD/UV combo pack includes the R-rated theatrical and the unrated director's cut with 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include Commentary with director Louis Morneau and producer Mike Elliott, Making the Monster, Transformation: Man To Beast, Monster Legacy, and deleted scenes.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
