Eric Red’s Werewolf film BAD MOON Gets Scream Factory Treatment; Director’s Cut Included!!

sfEric Red should be a horror icon by this point. Having written films such as NEAR DARK, THE HITCHER and countless other entertaining genre films, the writer and sometimes director has such a singular voice, that he deserves any recognition that comes his way. A lot of my favorite films of his were made in the ’80s but with films like BODY PARTS and the subject of this post, BAD MOON, Red has been active and relative in every decade since his debut years ago. Thanks to the always reliable gang over at Scream Factory, Red’s 1996 werewolf film BAD MOON is set to make its Bluray debut on July 19th, complete with both the theatrical AND director’s cut of the film and a pretty impressive amount of supplemental material.  We’ve got the complete info for your fright fanatics, so read on!

Full, crescent, quarter… each is a Bad Moon for Ted Harrison. By day, he’s a photojournalist visiting family in the Pacific Northwest. By night, he transfigures into a horrific half-human – a werewolf. Dead men tell no tales, so Ted’s sure he alone knows about his vile double life. The secret, however, may be out. The family dog Thor, devoted to defending the household, has his suspicions.

Writer/director Eric Red (Cohen and Tate, Body Parts) delivers a new infusion of thrills with this red-blooded shocker. Michael Paré (Streets of Fire) portrays Ted, hiding his accursed condition from his sister (Mariel Hemmingway, Lipstick, Star 80) and nephew (Mason Gamble). What better way to hide it than to create suspicion that the local killings are the work of another – especially if that other is the family’s all-too-wise German shepherd!
