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.

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.

While the picture quality of Alien 2 is easily 4 star , the audio quality of this Blu Ray release is 1 star at best . Upon first viewing I noticed periodic popping and crackling as well as an annoyingly loud hissing that came and went throughout the movie . It was so bad I thought that my sound system might be having problems . I brought the disc to a friends house for a screening and heard the same audio issues at the same points in the film . It's definitely a problem with the disc itself . It is a shame because the picture quality is so good , a little more money on the audio and this would've been one of my favorite Blu Rays of the year . 3 stars is generous in my opinion considering the incredibly boring extras included . A fun B movie but a flawed Blu Ray .

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!
