Title number 008 on our Black Label. See here for full range.
101 Films presents Howard the Duck (1986), title 008 on our Black Label and a UK Blu-ray debut. A box office bomb upon release, the film's notoriety has never faded, and it now stands as one of the essential cult films of the 1980s.
From executive producer George Lucas and the pages of Marvel Comics comes a comedy adventure spectacular about a fast-talking, cigar-chomping, beer-loving duck from a parallel universe who crashes to Earth and somehow winds up in Cleveland. As Howard attempts to return to his own planet, he falls in love with rock singer Beverly Switzler (Lea Thompson, Back to the Future) and must battle an evil invader known as the Dark Overlord.
This wacky, elaborately produced spoof of life, love, comic books and horror movies is a misunderstood cult classic, ripe for rediscovery.
