Distributor : Midnight Legacy, US
Alien 2 On Earth, or Alien 2 Sulla Terra, or even Alien Terror to UK horror fans, arrived on the horror circuit as an Italian sequel to Ridley Scott's original sci-fi/horror classic. Long before James Cameron wrote the official sequel, Alien 2 was gaining popularity among video cassette lenders searching for outrageous blood and guts mayhem and the film soon achieved cult status. Although in reality a very different spectacle to Alien, there exists certain similarities between the two films including a fair amount of suspense and some pretty nasty gore effects which should keep most horror movie goers reasonably entertained. For many years, the film disappeared into obscurity and could only be seen on vintage video cassette releases, where it remained abandoned without a modern day re-issue. Thankfully Midnight legacy have finally come to the films rescue by providing an outlet to produce high definition releases of some long forgotten and hard to find classic movies. To mark the occasion and make Alien 2 accessible to collectors worldwide, the distributor has presented this Blu-ray disc unlocked, so anyone still encumbered by region coding need not be concerned.
Alien 2 On Earth, sees it's first new media release in around 30 years and the wait has indeed been extensive but altogether worthwhile. Released here in a special extended version of the film, there are few releases these days that actually shock the viewer with the quality of their transfer, however the print displayed on this release is quite simply breathtaking. Colours are incredibly strong throughout showing excellent black levels and sharp detail with an absolute bear minimum of any visible print damage displayed.Read more ›
some caves on location in Italy.
I have got 2 copies of this Midnight Legacy release on Blu-ray, and 2 of the VHS pre-certs from Britain in the early days under the bogus title: ALIEN TERROR , (which are fully english credit friendly, and an alternate monotone colored finale of Belinda Mayne running and screaming through the deserted streets). I would rate this print from Midnight and actual 10/10. They tried their hardest, and delivered.
I grabbed 2 of these goodies before they were recalled, and will not be released officially until next month from now as I write this. I have them in a slip cover and with a blue based amaray keep case within. I just hope when the Blu-ray (and now, after much demand, an upcoming dvd!) will be released officially next March with a much talked about "red" keep case, making mine some sort of a limited collector's item!Read more ›

If you had told me that there would be a non bootleg DVD of Alien 2 - Sulla Terra on German DVD I wouldn't have believed you. So, imagine my surprise when this project from the people behind Midnight Video and Chrome Entertainment came to pass. High Definition European Trash Cinema has a new home, and Alien 2-On Earth is the harbinger of many things to come I hope. But more on that, and the disc, after we look at the greatest, and least likely, beneficiary of an HD transfer in many years.
"Cliff! It's immobile, waiting...above your head!!!!"
Alien 2-On Earth is a very very simple film. While it may bear minor similarities to Alien, exactly two little bits, it is a fun and gory diversion during the brief running time. Basically, after some rugged looking stock footage (with characters being dubbed within the footage!!) reveals that a space capsule is returning to earth we meet the pretty Thelma. She is a spelunker. She is played by the sexy and HD topless Belinda Mayne! She is also psychic. In tune with Aliens psychic!! And those Aliens are about to be Sulla Terra brothers and sisters of the Trash Cinema cult! She finds this out while on local TV unfortunately, as news producers ponder the mysterious circumstances around the capsule landing without a crew. So, this a bad news day and the stock footage can't save it. The hot cave woman collapsed and the space craft was empty dammit. But this is good for us! Why? Because the rest of the spelunkers are bowling! Nothing says SPLATTER like Italians bowling in High Definition!Read more ›
