Scream Factory, the horror-thriller offshoot of independent film distributor Shout Factory, is planning to bring to Blu-ray director Paul Schrader's Cat People (1982), starring Nastassja Kinski, Malcolm McDowell, John Heard, Annette O'Toole, and Scott Paulin. The release is expected to arrive on the market in January 2014.
Nastassia Kinski (Tess, Paris, Texas) stars as Irena, a beautiful young woman on the bridge of sexuality; she discovers love for the first time only to find that the explosive experience brings with it tragic consequences. The tremendous passion of this girl's first romantic love is so strong, however, it bypasses the chaos around her- including her brother's (Malcolm McDowell, A Clockwork Orange, Caligula) extraordinary demands- as it pushes her on to her own bizarre destiny. With a style as timeless as myth, Cat People is an erotic fantasy of the passion and terror that surround this girl's first love. Desire... passion... blood, her lust transforms her into one of the Cat People.
Wow, didn't see this one coming. Just thinking about this romantic horror film makes me yearn for the days of yesteryear. What do we have to show for it these days, Twilight?! Damn this thought is depressing. This film has it all: Kinski's smoking hot, the shocks are scary and the soundtrack is amazing, not to mention Bowie's song is a gem. However I'm going to wait and see if Arrow announces this. After their release of Lifeforce had more extras then Shout's release, I'm not going to take any chances.
