How special is the new DVD edition of 1981's classic THE HOWLING? It's special enough that if you already own the previous no-frills DVD, you'll want to rush out and buy this new one. Not only does it contain a new widescreen print remastered by director Joe Dante, but it's also filled with deleted scenes, outtakes, commentary and a brand-new documentary called "Unleashing the Beast."
"I kept calling the people who owned the movie, and [I] said when they do the disc, that I have to color-time it," says Dante. "They told me, 'It's already timed, it looks great, we'll send it to you.' I didn't think it looked very good, so I said, 'If you ever put out a special edition, please, I want to do it' and they did. It's one of the better-looking movies I've made and I wanted it to look good as it can."
