    Well, a SE of "The Howling" is coming sooner than we thought.

    According to the "Creature Corner", a SE will be released next year:

    «MGM is going to hate me for this but I’ve got to keep you fiends informed right?


    This past weekend at the Egyptian Theatre I was lucky enough to check out the 1980 werewolf film ‘The Howling’ on the big screen. Following the film, the movie’s director, Joe Dante, came out to reminisce about the film with actor Robert Picardo (who played the lupine Eddie Quist).


    Though MGM has ‘The Howling’ scheduled for DVD release this week, Dante informed us that a Special Edition is indeed in the works and will see the light of the moon in about a year. The film’s sound and picture will be re-mastered and the disc will most likely come packed with extras. Sorry, no specifics were given.»


    Isn't that cool news or what? I'm glad I didn't get the movie-only edition...

    So did I :)

    I knew this was going to happen. First with Platoon/Princess Bride
    then with Escape From New York and now with this.

    At least they got Killer Klowns and Terminator right the 1st time.

    Don't you just love it? :D

    From now on, when a big studio releases a film on DVD and it is barebones, I think I will wait a couple of months for the SE release announcement.

    i just can 't wait for the escape from NY SE.

    But the Howling looks desirable as well.

    Why, oh, why do they do this?<br> Don't they get enough money out of us.<br>Yes, that means of course I'll be buying it.

    "At least they got Killer Klowns and Terminator right the 1st time."

    I wish they got Terminator right the first time. I bought the bare bones disc a long while back, and now I am selling it trying to get some money for the special edition that is coming. I'm just glad I held off on Monty Python & The Holy Grail.

    I was talking MGM getting Terminator right the 1st time.
    They didn't screw that up big time but they could've.

    Good thing I didn't buy "The Howling" yet, I'm quite happy with the LD. Guess it pays to be patient.

    I really hope they give us the LaserDisc extras, it sucks having new extras and know there are still others "over there" you can't reach, especially if your like me and LD Players are scarce as Werewolves. ;)
