Joe Dante’s werewolf classic The Howling is coming to 4K from Scream! Factory. This is another one of those films that we own on multiple formats. However, 4k is too great to pass up. Not only is it going to be great to own this one on 4k, but these features are insanely great.

The synopsis for The Howling goes like this:

“Severely shaken after a near-fatal encounter with a serial killer, TV newscaster Karen White (Dee Wallace, E.T. Tthe Extra-Terrestrial) 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!”
