New "Wolf Man" DVD to Accompany Release of Upcoming Remake

Monsters From The Vault editor/publisher Jim Clatterbaugh has posted the following information from author and Universal Studios Home Entertainment publicist Scott Essman on the Classic Horror Film Board:

"You didn't hear this from me, but there is going to be a new WOLF MAN DVD... you also didn't hear this from me, but in addition to the Lon Chaney Jr. doc (see below), there is going to be an all-new doc on the history of lycanthropy on the DVD. And you still didn't hear this, but there is going to be an all-new AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON DVD with a new expansive doc by a young filmmaker in England.

"This week, I was privileged to get a sneak peek on the nearly finished Lon Chaney, Jr. documentary destined for an upcoming Universal disc to coincide with the new WOLF MAN movie. Can't say too much except it was an exceptionally made, lovingly executed, thoroughly researched and presented doc, akin to the one I participated in for Jack Pierce. Some top names are in the doc in addition to some unique participants - lots of surprises in here for even the most ardent fan. This doc asserts that Chaney Jr. should stand tall alongside Karloff, Lugosi, and dare I say his father in the pantheon of great actors at Universal in the 20s-40s."
