I remember talking about Chiller TV’s version of The Monkey’s Paw a year or two back and it was on my list of films to check out, but unfortunately it slipped my mind. Thankfully the guys over at Scream Factory are set to jog all our memories as they will be unleashing the film onto Blu-ray and DVD this June 17th.
From the Press Release:
One wish. A thousand regrets. Scream Factory presents The Monkey’s Paw from Chiller Films on Blu-ray and DVD on June 17 with bonus features including behind-the-scenes footage, a theatrical trailer, and commentary with director Brett Simmons, cinematographer Scott Winig, and actor CJ Thomason.
After Jake Tilton (CJ Thomason, Sutures) acquires a mystical “monkey’s paw” talisman that grants its possessor three wishes, he finds his world turned upside-down after his first two wishes result in his malevolent coworker, Tony Cobb (Stephen Lang, Avatar), being resurrected from the dead. When Cobb pressures Jake into using the final wish to reunite Cobb with his son, his intimidation quickly escalates into relentless murder – forcing Jake to outwit his psychotic friend and save his remaining loved ones.
Also starring Corbin Bleu (High School Musical, Nurse 3D), Charles S. Dutton (Legion), Michelle Pierce (“NCIS”) and Daniel Hugh Kelley (Cujo), The Monkey’s Paw is adapted from the renowned short story by W.W. Jacobs and picks up where the story left off.
