Scream Factory Releases Coming Soon: 'Man's Best Friend' and 'Mole People'

Scream factory has two very different but very awesome releases coming to their catalog soon. First is the 1993 animal horror "classic" Man's Best Friend, starring Ally Sheedy and Lance Henrikson. This will feature a new 2K scan of the film and a new commentary with director John Lafia. More importantly a classic sci-fi/horror film will make its debut on Blu-ray in North America. The Mole People is one of those films that people love to hate on (one of the included special features on the disc is the MST3K episode that covers this film), but the creature designs are awesome and I for one am excited to finally add this to my collection. Man's Best Friend comes out March 12, while The Mole People hits Blu-ray on February 26th. Check out the covers for each and disc contents below, and preorder right here.

Man's Best Friend Scream Factory Cover

It's Cujo meets The Terminator! The 90s cult favorite Man's Best Friend debuts on Blu-ray on March 12, 2019 from Scream Factory, featuring a new 2k scan of the original film elements and with a new audio commentary with writer/director John Lafia.
Pulse-pounding action and spine-chilling thrills put the bite into this sci-fi shocker starring Ally Sheedy (X-Men: Apocalypse, The Breakfast Club) and Lance Henriksen (Pumpkinhead, Aliens).
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.
Special Features:
·        NEW 2K scan of the original film elements
·        NEW Audio Commentary with writer/director John Lafia
