The Sexy, Supernatural Drama Comes to DVD May 22
With an Exclusive Extended Season Finale!

Discover the story of how one strange night forever transformed one teenager’s life, when MTV’s hit show “TEEN WOLF” Season 1 comes to DVD May 22 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc.  Nominated for six Teen Choice Awards®, Season 1 is a must-own for every fan, with an exclusive never-before-seen extended season finale, deleted and extended content and behind-the-scenes extras with the sizzling, breakout stars of the show.  “TEEN WOLF” stars some of young Hollywood’s finest, including Tyler Posey (Scott McCall), Crystal Reed (Allison Argent), Tyler Hoechlin (Derek Hale), Dylan O’Brien (Stiles), Holland Roden (Lydia Martin) and Colton Haynes (Jackson Whittemore).  The series will return for a second season this summer on MTV.
MTV’s “TEEN WOLF is a sexy, suspenseful drama about transformation set against the backdrop of contemporary teen life, with a forbidden, romantic love story at its core, making it a fresh and different take on the iconic movie.  Always an outsider and often unnoticed, Scott McCall yearns to be recognized in some small way that takes him out of his typical state of high school anonymity. When his best friend Stiles convinces him to go into the woods one night to join a police search for a dead body, Scott encounters a creature in the darkness. Narrowly escaping an attack with a vicious bite in his side, the next day brings strange surprises for Scott at school and his life will never be the same.


“Teen Wolf” was based on the original 1985 film starring Michael J. Fox in the leading role and shares a similar plot in comparison to the TV show remake.  In celebration of the DVD release of the TV show adaptation, we will take a look back at other 80s films that would make great TV shows such as: The Breakfast Club, Adventures in Babysitting, and The Goonies.


One cannot discuss 80s movies without touching on the John Hughes film that transcended generations after it’s initial release in 1985 – The Breakfast Club.  The movie tells the story of five high school students who are forced to spend one Saturday in detention together.  Belonging in different cliques in their school, these five strangers come face-to-face with each other’s problems and insecurities and learn to see pass their shallow outlook in life.  This coming of age film is still one will continue to remain relevant for future generations. 


Before Chris Columbus became a household name with film such as Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, he made his directorial debut in the 1980s film Adventures with Babysitting, starring Elizabeth Shue and Bradley Whitford.  The story follows Chris Parker, a high school senior who’s set to go to her dream date with her boyfriend, Mike Todwell, when he cancels last minute and instead reluctantly accepts a babysitting job.  While on the job, Chris receives a call from her best friend asking her to pick her up at the bus station in downtown Chicago and what follows is a night out on the town with two kids, underage grand theft auto and a gang fight. 


The Goonies embodies a perfect 80s film – especially for those who grew up in that decade. The plot centers around a group of best friends who find themselves on a treasure hunt around their town of Astoria after they find a map in the attic. Before their town gets taken over by a wealthy tycoon to turn their homes into a golf course the group, consisting of Mikey, Mouth, Chunk, Data, Brand, Stef and Andy, decide to take one last adventure together and go hunting for treasure. The film had everything kids love – adventure, comedy, a little something to keep you on edge and quotable lines like Chunk’s “Truffle Shuffle.”


No other character from the 80s may be more iconic than the alien in E.T. who was left behind by his ship on a strange planet while collecting vegetation samples.  ET makes his way from the woods to a suburban neighborhood when he is soon discovered by a boy name Elliot who decides to keep him for his own.  Elliot does his best to hide his secret but it isn’t long before his siblings find out.  The friendship between Elliot and ET makes this film into a an incredibly touching tale about friendship, especially once Elliot realizes that ET needs to get home and helps him do so by putting forth a plan in motion.
