31 Days of Horror Blu-rays: Nighthawks (1981)

"When Europe's most feared terrorist (Hauer – The Hitcher) explosively announces his presence in Manhattan, two elite undercover cops (Stallone and Billy Dee Williams) are assigned to stop him before he strikes again. But the ruthless terrorist has other plans for the city - and the detectives."

One of my personal favorite movies of the 80's is finally hitting Blu-ray tomorrow! Nighthawks is a Crime Thriller starring Sylvester Stallone (and his magnificent, old school beard) that is so intense that it was actually featured in the 80's Horror Doc, Terror in the Aisles (review HERE.)

Shout Factory! (Scream Factory's parent label) is killing it with top notch Genre releases this year, and for us, me in particular, this is the top of the heap as far as their non-Horror titles go.

Bonus Features:

  • NEW Lights, Camera, Action! – An Audio Interview With Producer Herb Nanas
  • NEW Nighthawks: The First Draft – An Interview With Writer Paul Sylbert
  • NEW We Gotta Shoot This! – An Interview With Director Of Photography James A. Contner.
  • NEW A Sign Of The Times – An Interview With Actress Lindsay Wagner.
  • NEW Not The Other Girls – An Interview With Actress Catherine Mary Stewart.
  • NEW It Was Hell – An Interview With Technical Adviser Randy Jurgensen.
  • Theatrical Trailer.
  • Radio Spots.
  • Still Gallery.

This isn't going to be a big, perfect disc, but Nighthawks is an excellent Thriller that is finally going to be available in HD, so we don't care if it's perfect or not; this is one that we've coveted for a long time, and now we finally get to own it.

You should too.
