If you’re into horror, if not why are you reading this, then you are probably familiar with the short story, The Monkey’s Paw by W.W. Jacobs. Another cinematic retelling of the famous story is headed to Blu-Ray and DVD from Scream Factory. Read on below for more details.
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.
