Editorial Reviews

Uncut, English language, 1.85 widescreen release of the 1980 Italian Horror/Sci-Fi film directed by Ciro Ippolito (Sam Cromwell). Starring Belinda Mayne, Mark Bodin, Roberto Barrese, Michele Soavi and Judy Perrin. A group of cave explorers are confronted in an underground cavern by a mysterious living rock. Little do they know that it bears home to deadly, flesh-eating creatures, intent on wiping out the entire human population. Can they survive and ultimately prevent Earth's total annihilation? Never released in the United States, only a handful of countries saw a cropped and edited VHS release nearly thirty years ago, that is until now. For our inaugural release, Midnight Legacy is proud to present the first-ever widescreen release of Alien 2 On Earth. The definitive version, transferred from the original 35mm negative, which runs longer than any other version seen throughout the world. The presentation that finally represents the intended vision of Alien 2 On Earth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blu Review 28 - Alien 2 on Earth December 2, 2010
Alien 2 On Earth Blu-ray Review

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant print, with virtually no flaws. February 4, 2011
Verified Purchase
This Print of ALIEN 2: ON EARTH , is actually screen titled ALIEN 2 - SULLA TERRA. Also, the credits at the beginning and on the end of the film are in Italian (and actually crediting Belinda and Marc's alternate input of Italian language at the finale when the dubbing of this version is English!) Otherwise, a remarkable print, with a beautiful, clean and crisp picture and colours. The film , well , I love it, I have always loved it, Ciro Ippolito manages to really creep you out along with Guido and Maurizio's score which really "absorbs" you into the suspense and impending doom of the characters in the cave (and even a bowling alley!). Though not high in logic; that is actually what this film is meant to be, with suspense (as I mentioned before), and some great gore and mechanical creations by Donald Patterly, and atmospheric scenery in San Diego, and in partial:
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!

Alien 2 : On Earth (1980)
Starring Belinda Mayne, Michele Soavi, Mark Bodin and Judy Perrin
Directed by Ciro Ippolito
Midnight Legacy Blu Ray ([..])

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!

Red or blue case?
It will come in a blue case as the red case idea was scrapped.
