CAT PEOPLE, DIE MONSTER DIE, THE SHADOW & More from Shout Factory in January

Just realized I never started a January thread for the company.
Preorders for most are now live at Amazon; I've updated my Upcoming Releases list accordingly.

http://bruceholecheck.blogspot.com/2...s-of-note.html

Overall it's a pretty weak month, but potentially worthwhile releases so far look like:

* George P. Cosmatos' The Cassandra Crossing (1976) / Stanley Kramer's The Domino Principle -- Blu (1/7)

* Paul Schrader's Cat People (1982) -- Blu (1/21)

* Daniel Haller's Die Monster Die (1965) -- Blu (1/21)

* Jerry Jameson's Raise the Titanic (1980) -- DVD / Blu Combo (1/21)

* Russell Mulcahy's The Shadow (1994) -- Blu (1/21)

* Edward Nassour & Ismael Rodriguez' The Beast of Hollow Mountain (1956) / Ewald Andre Dupont's The Neanderthal Man (1953) -- DVD / Blu Combo (1/28)

* David Greene's Madame Sin (1972) -- DVD (1/28)

Will definitely buy Cat People. I plan on skipping the rest.

Hopefully Night Of The Demons and Witchboard are coming soon (February, perhaps?).

Shout Factory announced their CAT PEOPLE supplements -- which more or less consists of a boatload of interviews:

* All-new interviews with Director/Writer Paul Schrader, Actress Nastassja Kinski, Actor Malcolm McDowell, Actor John Heard, Actress Annette O'Toole, Actress Lynn Lowry and legendary composer Giorgio Moroder.
* Still Gallery
* Theatrical Trailer
* TV spot

Apparently they couldn't include Universal's DVD supplements because of rights issues. Here's a list of what was on the DVD:
* Audio Commentary with Paul Schrader
* "Cat People: An Intimate Conversation with Paul Schrader" Featurette (25 minutes)
* "Special Makeup Effects by Tom Burman" Featurette (11 minutes)
* "On the Set with Paul Schrader" Electronic Press Kit (10 minutes)
* "Cat People Matte Paintings" Still Gallery (3 minutes)
* "Production Photographs" Still Gallery (6 minutes)
* Filmmaker Robert Wise on the producer of the original Cat People, Val Lewton (3 minutes)
* Theatrical Trailer

The only one I'm really upset to see go is the Tom Burman interview -- don't they know by now that horror fans want to see the FX guys talk?

Wasn't there also a little featurette about Val Lewton on the old Cat People disc? I'm mainly miffed about the commentary, those are usually my favorite extras.

The extras of the old Universal DVD can all be found on the German BluRay from Koch Media called "Katzenmenschen":

According to Blu-Ray.com, the German CAT PEOPLE disc looks pretty crummy. Hopefully Shout Factory doesn't use the same manipulated master.

I have Cat People on HD-DVD and it looked / sounded pretty good from what I remembered (been awhile since I watched it).

Never heard of Raise the Titantic. Any good? The other three are must buys. Glad to see Baldwin's Shadow movie finally get some love on disc (in terms of special features). Hopefully there is some kind of history of documentary in regards to the character.

raise the titanic is a very slow moving boring long ass movie, the end is decent when the raise the ship, but to get to that point feels like an eternity. It came out in theaters for 2 weeks in august of 1980. and totally bombed..Not bombed as bad as Hanger 18, but close.
