Stallone’s Cobra Sinks Fangs Into Blu-ray on January 22

There is no great opening reel of an ’80s action film than Cobra. Every frame of the grocery store shoot out with Stallone is golden. Sylvester Stallone is perfect as he shows up and takes on the hoodlums with an attitude that can’t be topped. The lines are so quotable. This is action done right. The rest of the film is good, but it’s hard to top the brilliance of the opening. And now you can enjoy the diamond of destruction in Blu-ray when Scream Factory releases Cobra: Collector’s Edition on January 22. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory with the new bonus features:


Starring Sylvester Stallone
A Film by George P. Cosmatos


Cobra is a sleek, extremely violent and exciting police thriller.” – Variety

Lt. Cobretti is a one-man assault team whose laser-mount submachine gun and pearl-handled Colt .45 spit pure crime-stopping venom! Sylvester Stallone stars as Marion Cobretti. But to those who know him – and those who wish they didn’t – he’s Cobra, a street-tough, big-city detective who does jobs nobody else wants or dares to do. On January 22, 2019, SCREAM FACTORY™ is proud to present 80’s action-packed cult thriller COBRA Collector’s Edition Blu-ray. Directed by George P. Cosmatos (Rambo: First Blood Part II, Tombstone), the film stars Sylvester Stallone (Rocky, Creed), Brigitte Nielsen (Creed II, Red Sonja), and Reni Santoni (Murder One, The Practice).

Director George P. Cosmatos teams up again with Stallone for this thriller pitting Cobretti against a merciless serial killer. The trail leads to not one murderer but also an army of psychos bent on slashing their way to a “New Order” – and killing a witness along the way. Fortunately, her protector is Cobra, a man who delivers vigilante justice like no other!
