With the modern-day redo of The Wolf Man (1941) coming out in February, the hair on our arms is all a-tingle at the prospect of a Special Edition version of the original film, now due out Feb. 2, 2010.

Here is the plot summary:

“The original horror classic that introduced one of the screen’s most infamous monsters! Lon Chaney, Jr. portrays Larry Talbot, who returns to his father’s (Claude Rains) castle in Wales and meets a beautiful woman (Evelyn Ankers). One fateful night, Talbot escorts her to a local carnival where Jenny’s fate is revealed by a mysterious gypsy fortune teller.  The dreamlike atmospheres and elaborate settings combined with a chilling musical score make The Wolf Man a masterpiece not only of the genre, but for all time!”
