The Italian horror flick Lover of the Monster will debut on Blu-ray and DVD June 8 from MVD Entertainment Group and Full Moon Features.

Legendary German actor Klaus Kinski (Crawlspace, Nosferatu: Phantom Der Nacht) stars as Dr. Alex Nijinksy, a troubled scientist who retires to his long-suffering wife Anijeska’s family castle in search of a fresh start.
