The Howling and Ninja III Prepped For Blu-ray

Posted February 27, 2013 07:04 PM by Webmaster

Shout FactoryScream Factory, the horror-thriller offshoot of independent film distributor Shout Factory, has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray Joe Dante's The Howling (1981) and Sam Firstenberg's Ninja III: The Domination (1984). The two titles are expected to arrive on the market this summer.

The Howling

From the director of Gremlins and Piranha comes the ultimate masterpiece of primal terror. Severely shaken after a near-fatal encounter with a serial killer, TV newscaster Karen White (Dee Wallace, E.T.) takes some much-needed time off. Hoping to conquer her inner demons, she heads for "the Colony," a secluded retreat where her new neighbors are just a tad too eager to make her feel at home. Also, there seems to be a bizarre link between her would-be attacker and this supposedly safe haven. And when, after nights of being tormented by savage shrieks and unearthly cries, Karen ventures into the forest to find answers, she makes a terrifying discovery. Now she must fight not only for her life... but for her very soul! Starring Dee Wallace, Patrick Macnee, Dennis Dugan, Christopher Stone, and Elisabeth Brooks.

Ninja III: The Domination

The opening fight scene is legendary. Golf ball crushing, eyeball stabbing, punching through the roof of a police car, ninja star to the face, this fight has it all. The ninja even throws a star with his foot and shoots a dart down the barrel of a gun. Ninja III: The Domination has secured itself as a minor masterpiece in the ninja genre thanks to the martial arts skills of the legendary Sho Kosugi and David Chung. Starring Sho Kosugi, Lucinda Dickey, Jordan Bennett, Dale Ishimoto, James Hong, and Pamela Ness.

Holy crap!!! Shout Factory is killing it with all my favorite obscure childhood flicks. Can not wait. If Ninja III: The Domination can get a bluray release, then I'm feeling pretty good about eventually seeing Revenge of the Ninja and Pray For Death on bluray. Keep em' coming Shout factory!!!

Wow. I'd definitely welcome Ninja III and the prospect of Revenge of the Ninja; two films I literally could not stop watching as a kid. Maybe throw in The Last Dragon?..

Absolutely shocked and thrilled that Ninja 3 is coming out on a proper DVD let alone Blu Ray. Day one purchase for me. Also hoping since they have MGM films that we can get Blu Rays of Escape From New York (Special Edition), The Adventures Of Buckaroo Banzai, Swamp Thing (Unrated International Cut), Bubba Ho-Tep, I Come In Peace, Phantasm, and Southern Comfort. I know those can't all be Scream Factory movies but they could indeed be Shout Factory releases. Fingers crossed!

Shout Factory does it again! Surprised Ninja III got a release date before Enter the Ninja and Revenge of the Ninja, But you know what? I'm still happy about this news.

Really looking forward to The Howling.

As much as I loved Ninja 3 when I was like 13, from memory, I can't even imagine liking it now. Same goes for Revenge of the Ninja and American Ninja, even though I couldn't get enough of them back in my early teens. That doesn't mean I won't be very tempted to support this release if the price is right, just for curiosity's sake, even though I'll likely end up reselling it soon after my memory is refreshed.

I wouldn't mind it if Shout factory got their hands on Enter the Ninja though, the one with Franco Nero and Sho Kosugi. I think that was the one that started the craze and possibly the only one with a semblance of a plot, unless you count The Octagon that came out the year before; but I always took that for a Chuck Norris vehicle with a shallow portrayal of the Ninja, rather than a full fledged Ninja movie.

Now we're talkin'!! But what a positively atrocious cover for "The Howling". Horrid. And yet "Ninja III" cover looks the same as the old VHS. Hmph.

Ninja III fan here (Lucinda Dickey <3), but I hope this release will be better than the German blu-ray which apparently had such a poor image it seemed to be transferred from a VHS source.

Ninja III is probably my favorite ninja movie ever. A good mix of ninja and horror and Lucinda is gorgeous in it I can finally retire my bootleg DVD transferred from a VHS. I'd love to see Revenge and Enter released as well and Chuck's Octagon available on Region A at last (seems everyone else got that except us North American folk).

The new poster art for The Howling is actually pretty good. But, for purists like myself, Shout/Scream Factory is really great at providing reversible covers that also feature the original post art.

Only negative is for people that have never seen the movie. The werewolf design is awesome and pretty scary at the time. The new artwork ruins it for new viewers.

So have they dropped slips for future shout titles? I don't think the new ones have em. And what about the reversable art w the original posters, is that still happening?

The Howling is a day 1 no-brainer. Ninja III did bring a smile to my face, as I remember seeing it at the drive-inn when I was 8 (I never did like tomato juice, but I'd be willing to give it a try served that way ). Its good to see films like this getting the blu treatment, as it gives me hope that some of my other childhood "guilty pleasures" may not be too far off in the future (Trick or Treat, Troll, and Never Too Young To Die (John Stamos, Vanity, Robert Englund and Gene Simmons as a drag-queen terrorist. What could possibly go wrong?) to name a few).
