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 ›
