Scream Factory Releases Massive List of Special Features on New Big Trouble in Little China Release

Filmmaker John Carpenter might be most known for his straightforward horror endeavors like Halloween, The Fog, or Prince of Darkness, but the director often blends various elements from a number of genres to create entirely unique experiences. For instance, one of Carpenter's most beloved films is the Kurt Russell-starring Big Trouble in Little China, which blends elements of fantasy, action, comedy, and even some horror, resulting in a film well-deserving of its cult status. While the film is currently available on Blu-ray, Scream Factory is set to debut an all-new Blu-ray of the film, which comes with a staggering number of all-new special features.

Kurt Russell stars as Jack Burton, a tough-talking truck driver whose life goes into a supernatural tailspin when his best friend's fiancée is kidnapped in John Carpenter's Big Trouble In Little China. Jack suddenly finds himself in a murky, danger-filled world beneath San Francisco's Chinatown, where Lo Pan, a 2,000-year-old magician, mercilessly rules an empire of spirits. Facing down a host of unearthly terrors, Jack battles through Lo Pan's dark domain in a full-throttle, action-riddled ride to rescue the girl. Also starring James Hong, Kim Cattrall and Dennis Dun, this special effects-filled spectacle is a non-stop thrill ride to an incredible finish!
