Forthcoming German AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON UHD Package to Include Elmer Bernstein’s Soundtrack on CD
The bloodthirsty full moon shines with an Ultra High Definition (UHD) world premiere, as Turbine medien of Germany announces an ultimate edition of John Landis’ AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON due on November 6th. Shipping to the USA is available.
Among the many features of this box set will be the original soundtrack worldwide premiere with Elmer Bernstein’s score and the film’s array of pop songs on audio CD for the first time. Bernstein’s original soundtrack, albeit sparse, has never had a commercial soundtrack. “Private label” editions have been inconsistent and lacking in quality and legitimacy.
One of the best horror films of the 1980s can be experienced in the highest image and sound quality: The film shines for the first time worldwide on UHD with HDR, incl. a remastered Blu-ray. The sound has been restored and comes out of the boxes in 2.0 or 5.1 (German & English). The artwork of the Capbox comes from Gabz (Grzegorz Domaradzki) and was blessed with a very satisfied smile by John Landis.
Along with the soundtrack CD, other extras include:
On the bonus Blu-ray there are over 6 hours of audiovisual extras, among other things, the documentary “The Legacy of the Beast” (77 min) and “Fear the Moon” (98 min); a 100-page book “Man or Monster” on film history; Slaughtered Lamb beer lid, artcards, posters, and stickers.
The package is a limited edition of 2,626 units.
