Cat People: Scream Factory is bringing the 1982 film to 4K UHD in August

Just last week, we released a Best Horror Movie You Never Saw video all about director Paul Schrader‘s 1982 film Cat People (and you can check it out in the embed above). Now Scream Factory is accepting pre-orders for a 4K UHD release of Schrader’s Cat People that has a street date of August 30th! If you’d like to secure a copy, you can pre-order the 4K UHD release at THIS LINK. Fans who order through the Scream Factory site will also receive an exclusive 18″ x 24″ rolled poster featuring the original theatrical artwork, while supplies last.

A remake of a 1942 RKO classic, Cat People was scripted by Alan Ormsby and Schrader, and has the following synopsis:

Irena Gallier has a dark family secret, one that resurfaces dramatically when she reconnects with her estranged brother, Paul. Living with her sibling in New Orleans, Irena finds herself enamored with zoologist Oliver Yates, even as her brother makes his own advances toward her. It’s not long before the dark and dangerous curse of the Gallier clan rears its feline head.

The film stars Nastassja Kinski, Malcolm McDowell, John Heard, Annette O’Toole, Ruby Dee, Ed Begley Jr., Frankie Faison, Lynn Lowry, and John Larroquette.
