And even more very cool Universal titles make their great entrance

Apart from their classic monsters, Universal Home Video has also unveiled details about a number of other titles that will hit stores this fall.

After a long wait, Cape Fear is finally making its DVD debut on September 18. Both, the 1962 original and the 1991 remake will be released – although separately. The film tells the story of a vicious psychopath who is released from prison after serving 14 years with only one mission on his mind: to seek revenge on his attorney.

Both versions are being released as Special Editions with a number of interesting supplements. The 1962 version will feature an exclusive new documentary, production info, production stills with the score by Bernard Hermann, cast & crew biographies, DVD-ROM features and a poster gallery.

The 1991 version of the movie will contain deleted scenes, a new documentary, interviews with Martin Scorcese, Robert DeNiro, Jessica Lange, and Nick Nolte, some never-before-seen Behind the Scene Footage, and a Script to Scene Comparison, as well as trailers and biographies.

Both film will be released on September 18 for $24.98.

Also scheduled for release on the same date is finally a Special Edition of John Landis’ American Werewolf In London.

A macabre mix of humor and horror from the acclaimed director John Landis. This classic horror/comedy tells the beastly tale of two American youths whose European adventure turns to terror after they are attacked by a werewolf. One of the travelers is killed, but the other’s fate is worse than death as every full moon now seems to bring out the beast in him.

The DVD features a commentary track with David Naughton and Griffin Dunne. A new featurette and interviews with John Landis and special effects guru Rick Baker will also be part of the release, as well as the film’s trailer, production info, cast & crew biographies and DVD-ROM features.

Also look out for John Carpenter’s macabre hospital slasher flick Halloween II on September 18. More details on that one, when it comes in!
