Press Release: Half man. Half wolf. Total terror. Scream Factory proudly presents Bad Moonfor the first time on Blu-ray on July 19, 2016. This release comes complete with special features, including a new director’s version supervised by Eric Red, and new interviews and audio commentary with cast and crew.
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 Pare (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!
