Michael J. Fox was riding high as America’s favorite pesky conservative son on Family Ties when he became a cinema sensation in the summer of 1985 with two hits at the box office. First was Back to the Future which was made to be a major Hollywood hit. But the film that cemented him into a star was a month later when a low budget indie film dominate the Cineplex. Teen Wolf had him all over the place as a hairy basketball playing kid. The film had to have a sequel which rightly cast Jason Bateman in Fox’s paws. Now both Teen Wolf and Teen Wolf Too are slated for Collector’s Editions from Scream Factory in August. Here’s the howling press release from Shout! Factory:
TEEN WOLF (COLLECTOR’S EDITION)

He always wanted to be special … but he never expected this! Like all teenagers, Scott Howard (Michael J. Fox, the Back to the Future trilogy) is going through some … changes. But unlike the rest of the students at Beacontown High School, Scott’s changes include long hair that covers his entire body, claw-like fingernails, fangs, a heightened sense of smell, superhuman strength and the extraordinary ability to … play basketball? And that’s just the beginning.
Naturally, these uncanny new features turn this loveable loser into the most popular kid in school. But by embracing his newly minted popularity, has the Teen Wolf lost sight of what it truly means to be Scott Howard?
In Teen Wolf Too, high school was easy, but college is a whole different animal! Jason Bateman (Horrible Bosses) stars as Todd Howard, a Hamilton University freshman with a full athletic scholarship — only Todd has no idea why, since he’s far more interested in veterinary medicine than sports. But his boxing coach, Bobby Finstock, is very familiar with the Howard family secret and he’s hoping he can use it to his advantage. When the whole school — including Todd — finds out that he’s a werewolf with superhuman abilities, Todd’s popularity skyrockets and he becomes the big wolf on campus.
But is his fame a gift? Or a curse? And can he keep it from getting in the way of the relationships he has with his best friends and girlfriend? Perhaps a little guidance from his professor (Kim Darby, True Grit), who has a secret of her own, may help Todd learn the biggest lesson of all.
