Scream Factory Announces Special Features For Raising Cain Collector's Edition

Scream Factory has been on a roll in 2016. They have upped their game by offering new 2K and, sometimes, 4K transfers (of course downscaled to 1080p) and have upped their game in the features department as well, offering features like workprint versions, as well as tv edits.

When they announced that they had acquired Raising Cain, the 1992 thriller starring John Lithgow and directed by Brian DePalma, I got really excited. I had watched the film upon release back in 1992 with my parents and the film left a lasting impression. Universal wasn't doing anything with the film, throwing it out on dvd with a dated master and no special features. Now that Scream had it, I knew that we would get a truly special package. I was not wrong.

Here are the features for this two disc set:

Disc One:
-Theatrical Version Of The Film
-NEW Interviews With Actors John Lithgow, Steven Bauer, Gregg Henry, Tom Bower, Mel Harris And Editor Paul Hirsch
-Original Theatrical Trailer

Disc Two:
-Director's Cut Of The Film Featuring Scenes Reordered As Originally Intended
-NEW Changing Cain: Brian De Palma's Cult Classic Restored Featurette
-NEW Raising Cain Re-Cut – A Video Essay By Peet Gelderblom

All of the special features are brand new and they look to be informative. I am looking forward to the Director's Cut the most as that has never been released before and I would like to see how the film differs between the two versions. 

Raising Cain: Collector's Edition hits the shelves on Sept. 13th. Below is the trailer for the film
