Sometimes you a remember a film by the place its poster once hung. This is the case with Man’s Best Friend. I worked at a small video store stuck in a strip mall back when the movie came out on VHS, the store owner had the poster featuring the attack dog on the back wall and low so it looked like it was dog height. His thought was that after hours, a thief would see the poster in the darkness and think we had a guard dog as security. It’s around this time I realized that guy owner installed only the mirrored balls into the ceiling without having real security cameras inside them. That was not a safe job. It’s a shame we didn’t have Man’s Best Friend roaming the aisles for real. Now it’s coming out on Blu-ray on March 12. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:
SCREAM FACTORY PRESENTS
MAN’S BEST FRIEND
ARRIVING ON BLU-RAY™
March 12, 2019
Nature created him. Science perfected him. But no one can control him.
Los Angeles, CA – It’s Cujo meets The Terminator! The 90s cult favorite Man’s Best Friend debuts on Blu-ray on March 12, 2019 from Scream Factory, featuring a new 2k scan of the original film elements and with a new audio commentary with writer/director John Lafia.
Pulse-pounding action and spine-chilling thrills put the bite into this sci-fi shocker starring Ally Sheedy (X-Men: Apocalypse, The Breakfast Club) and Lance Henriksen (Pumpkinhead, Aliens).
When an ambitious news journalist (Sheedy) breaks into a genetic research facility, she uncovers the biggest story of her career and unleashes the lab’s most dangerous experiment: Max – a genetically enhanced guard dog with a vicious killer instinct. Superior sight, hearing, strength, and intelligence make him faster, stronger, and smarter than almost any other animal alive – and deadlier. Without the neuropathic drugs needed to curb his aggressive nature, his predatory urge runs out of control … and once he tastes blood, nothing can stop him.
