The 2001 cult favorite horror fantasy Brotherhood of the Wolf will make its Blu-ray Disc debut July 27 from Scream Factory, the horror imprint of indie distributor Shout! Factory.
In a rural province of France, a mysterious creature is laying waste to the countryside, savagely killing scores of women and children. Unseen, possessed of enormous strength and a human intelligence, the beast has eluded capture for years. King Louis sends in a renowned scientist and his Iroquois blood brother, an unconventional team whose combined methods and capabilities may bring the beast down. But the true nature of the beast is not what anyone could have anticipated.
Directed by Christophe Gans (Silent Hill), the film features an all-star cast including Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci.
The Blu-ray includes an extended version of the film that showcases more martial arts action.
Extras include deleted scenes with introduction by Gans; theatrical trailers; and three featurettes:
- “The Guts of the Beast” — a look at the creation of the film from the fight scenes to the digital effects;
- “The Making of Brotherhood of the Wolf” — a look behind the scenes;
- “The Legend” — a look at the historical facts behind the legend of the Gévaudan Beast.
