Exclusive: Cadabra Brings Chilling Eeriness With M.R. James’ Casting the Runes

Published

on

For those who haven’t heard of them, Cadabra Records is a boutique record label that specializes in creating audio plays of fantastic horror stories. They did it with The Yellow Sign by Robert W. Chambers and have done stories from Bram Stoker and H.P. Lovecraft. Today we’re thrilled to help them announce their new project, which is a full cast audio play of M.R. James’ Casting the Runes. Below is an audio sample, which give you a taste of the magnificent scope of the production.

Starring David Warner (The Omen, Star Trek VI, In the Mouth of Madness), produced by Bleak December, and adapted by Anthony D.P. Mann, the limited edition vinyl will be released on January 26th with the first edition of 500 copies to be pressed on 150-gram colored vinyl and housed in a deluxe heavyweight gatefold tip-on jacket with newly commissioned art by Adam Burke.

Speaking about lending his voice to Casting the Runes, Warner states, “I was brought up only with radio, so it means so much to me to be able to imagine for myself what is being presented. And we can all imagine differently what is being presented to us via audio and radio, and that’s what the magic of it is – our own imaginations are able to take over. As an actor (and a voice actor, sometimes), I’m so glad to be able to contribute to peoples’ visual take on whatever it is we’re presenting. I just think it’s so invaluable, you know – the images and dreams in the mind.

THE CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE Pouncing onto Blu-ray Next Month

Published

on

The Curse of the Cat People will be released on Blu-ray for the first time by Scream Factory on June 26. Originally released in 1944, the film was a sequel to Cat People, which was released two years prior, with Kent Smith returning as Oliver Reed, a father who thinks his daughter may have fallen influence to his deceased first wife (played by Simone Simon, also returning), who was descended from a race of mythical cat people.

The film was co-directed by Gunther von Fritsch and Robert Wise, the latter of whom went on the helm classics including West Side Story, The Haunting, The Sound of Music, and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. It also starred Jane Randolph, Ann Carter, Sir Lancelot, and Julia Dean.

The Blu-ray will include audio commentaries from historians Steve Haberman and Greg Mank, trailers and stills, and a video essay by filmmaker Constantine Nasr called Lewton’s Muse: The Dark Eyes Of Simone Simon. As this classic film has never before graced the Blu-ray format with its presence, we can’t wait to get our hands (or paws) on it when it releases next month.
