Scream Factory is releasing another Val Lewton for the first time on Blu-ray. On July 30th The Leopard Man will arrive. Lewton's films, from the Golden Age of Hollywood, may seem dated to the modern audience, they are actually darker and more thought proving than most realize. Check out all the details and trailer below. #AFJ4LIFE
Press Release: Scream Factory proudly presents the '40s horror cult classic The Leopard Man in its Blu-ray debut July 30, 2019. The release comes complete with special features including new audio commentary and a brand new 4k scan of the original nitrate camera negative.
From legendary horror film producer Val Lewton (The Body Snatcher, Bedlam, The Ghost Ship) and from Jacques Tourneur, the director of the original Cat People, The Leopard Man is one of the first American films to attempt a remotely realistic portrayal of a serial killer.
Is it man, beast or both behind a string of savage maulings and murders? An escaped leopard provides the catalyst for a foray into fear in which a cemetery is the rendezvous for death and love, and a closed door heightens rather than hides the horror of a young girl’s fate. The Leopard Man once again teams producer Val Lewton with director Jacques Tourneur (Cat People). This thriller stars Dennis O’Keefe (T-Men, Raw Deal), Margo (Lost Horizon) and Jean Brooks (The Seventh Victim).
