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.

I've heard of it for years and was excited to get it on blu-ray of all things but was severely disappointed. The first 45 minutes are so boring and once the gore starts after what has got to be the longest most irrelevant panning shot in film history it's really not worth it. If you're expecting something like ALIEN CONTAMINATION this film certainly isn't it. There is nothing clever about it and it's not even fun to laugh at.
The soundtrack is pretty cool but you do have to sit through this film to experience it. The transfer and quality is incredibly good. It would be great to see other Italian horror and rare htf films released this way.
Like the title of my review, it's for true die hard collectors only. My copy will be going on ebay soon.
I certainly hope MIDNIGHT LEGACY begins releasing more hard to find films since their previous company had amazing titles that they really knew about while releasing the best cuts and quality available (CROSS OF THE SEVEN JEWELS please!!!) This one just doesn't do it for me.
BTW the extra features are NOT presented in HD quality as a previous reviewer stated. The effects reel is pretty boring and if you watch the Dutch trailer you've seen everything you need to see in this film.
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!
The extras consists of the Dutch trailer (see it on you tube if you wish) and a very brief and repeditive special effects out-takes reel.
Love this film, and is a more than respected delivered version for it's long overdue release, espescially for Blu-ray.
Note: Retailed as an "actual" sequel to Ridley Scott's 1979 film- Alien,- having it's title as a 2 after ALIEN. And am surprised that Ciro didn't get sued or the film pulled from distribution (Like many Italian Jaw's rip-offs did. So overall be you a film completist or collector, grab this disc! Oh yes, and it's fully uncensored.
