From The Press Release
Kino Lorber are preparing a Blu-ray release of Milton Moses Ginsberg’s The Werewolf of Washington (1973), starring Dean Stockwell, Katalin Kallay, Henry Ferrentino, Despo Diamantidou, and Thayer David. The release is expected to arrive on the market later this year.
Description: Watergate-era governmental corruption inspired this cinematic howl of anger from counter-culture auteur Milton Moses Ginsberg (Coming Apart). The Werewolf of Washington is a biting satire that savagely attacks beltway politics while paying playful homage to the wolfman pictures of the past. Dean Stockwell (Blue Velvet) stars as a presidential aide whose rise to power is exacerbated by the bite of a wolf, transforming him into a bloodthirsty beast with the rising of every full moon. As history has shown, a monster in the White House is not strictly a 1970s phenomenon, and so, half a century later, The Werewolf of Washington is as eviscerating and relevant as ever. This special Director’s Cut was prepared by Ginsberg shortly before his death in 2021. NEW 4K RESTORATION.
