When Jenny cheated on her husband, he didnt just leave...he split.
From master of terror Brian De Palma comes this stylish psychological thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final frame.
Carter Nix (Lithgow) is a respected psychologist, loving husband and devoted father who decides to take a year off to help raise his daughter. Carters wife Jenny is pleased to have her attentive husband home: at first.
When Carter shows obsessive behavior toward their daughter, Jenny becomes concerned, and to complicate matters, Jennys old flame re-enters her life. But nothing can prepare her for the emergence of Carters multiple personalities, and a fiendish plot to recreate the infamous experiments of his deranged father.
Scream Factorys Collectors Edition release of Raising Cain is one that not only well represents the film with supplemental material and a great presentation; it actually IMPROVES the film as well. With the new directors cut, Raising Cain absolutely now needs another look and to be re-assessed. The films new narrative is so much stronger and more faithful to just being a De Palma film, its actually just flat out better and actually a good solid thriller instead of a bit of a decent one that s a little harder to swallow (Or comprehend). This is a must have for De Palma fans and those who love seeing really different cuts of films. --Why So Blu, August 22, 2016

SPOILERS don't read unless you know the movie:
The directors cut starts with the scenes of Jenny shopping for the clocks and leaving one for each of the men then panicking that she left them each the wrong clock with a personal note that will expose her. If you have not seen the theatrical version you think her husband Carter is a normal guy with a cheating wife. This builds tension more than knowing from the first scene in the theatrical version that he is an insane kidnapper of women and children.
This special edition features both the original theatrical cut as well as a reassembled "Director's Cut" by writer/director Peet Gelderblom which follows De Palma's original script and restructures the film the way it was originally presented. The former is a good film with marvelous scene chewing performances by John Lithgow but the latter improves the film with its less conventional structure. The film has plenty of references to Hitchcock, Welles, Michael Powell and other film directors but it still remains, uniquely, De Palma.
De Palma specifically ASKED to have the reassembled included here.
The special features are pretty good.we get new interviews with Lithgow, Steven Bauer, Tom Bower, Mel Harris and editor Paul Hirsch. It's a pity that De Palma isn't featured and I'm not sure exactly why given that Shout had his approval to release this. The second disc which has the "Director's Cut" with an introduction by Peet Gelderblom. We also get the too revealing theatrical trailer.
The transfer looks exceptional good--the film receives a new 2K transfer. Color's look nice as does detail except for one or two shots. Depth is also Improved quite a bit as well. Audio sounds very nice with a DTS Stereo presentation. We also get subtitles in English.
As with most Scream releases we get a reversible cover with the original artwork and new art work as well.
"Raising Cain" isn't De Palma's best film but it's much better than its reputation.
