Earlier today, Shout! Factory announced that it's bringing 1993’s Man’s Best Friend to Blu-ray, which was a film written and directed by John Lafia (Child’s Play 2, The Dead Zone). This is the first time this 1993 cult classic will be made available on the format.
Man’s Best Friend starred Lance Henriksen (Aliens, The Terminator), Robert Constanzo (Die Hard 2, Total Recall), Ally Sheedy (Short Circuit, The Breakfast Club), and Fredrick Lehne (The Dark Knight Rises).
Have a look below for the press release and cover art from the retailer.
The 1993 “Cujo meets Terminator” horror/sci-fi hybrid Man’s Best Friend barks its way to Blu-ray for the first time on March 12th! Ally Sheedy (St.Elmo's Fire, The Breakfast Club) and Lance Henriksen (Pumpkinhead, Aliens) star.
When an ambitious news journalist (Sheedy) breaks into a genetic research facility, she uncovers the biggest story of her career and unleashes the lab's most dangerous experiment: Max – a genetically enhanced guard dog with a vicious killer instinct. Superior sight, hearing, strength, and intelligence make him faster, stronger, and smarter than almost any other animal alive – and deadlier. Without the neuropathic drugs needed to curb his aggressive nature, his predatory urge runs out of control ... and once he tastes blood, nothing can stop him.
Extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date.
Artwork you see is the original theatrical poster design. The reverse cover will have the art that most remember from the prior DVD and VHS releases.
This title will be available next year on March 12th, 2019 and is currently going for the special price of $23.99, plus the cost of shipping. Special features are still in the works and will be announced at a later date. If you’re interested in pre-ordering this item, head on over to Shout! Factory today.
