In October, Universal Studios Home Entertainment will bring Werewolf: The Beast Among Us to Blu-ray. This feature-length homage to Universal's classic monster cinema follows the carnage left by a werewolf running wild in a 19th century European village.
From Universal's official synopsis:
"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."
Universal's Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet Digital Copy combo pack offers two iterations of the film - a ninety-three-minute R-rated cut and a ninety-four-minute unrated edition. Both versions present the feature in its 1.78:1 original aspect ratio with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks. In addition to Universal's standard BD-Live, pocket BLU, Advanced Remote Control, Video Timeline, Mobile-To-Go, and Keyboard functionalities, the set contains a number of bonus supplements, such as:
Commentary with director Louis Morneau and producer Mike Elliott
Making the Monster
Transformation: Man To Beast
Werewolf: The Beast Among Us streets on October 9th.
I agree mreeves to a point, while a minute is not much, if 2 versions exist I would prefer to have the option of both versions. Same thing as theatrical cuts and unrated cuts, give me both. Whether I watch both that's up to me.
