    Any info about the dvd is there any reviews i know shriek show/media blasters
    is releasing it is there any reviews yet and who is getting it.


    I have the old media vhs but it is weird because the vhs tape starts in the middle of the credits it cuts off the first 10-30 seconds of the beginning credits.

    I'm getting it. Right now I have 2 Media cassettes with the cool purple cover with the original poster on the front (complete with "fold lines"). They start fine.
    Ooooooo! I cannot wait to see this in its widescreen form! I love the ending. For some reason - the titular creature always reminded me of Medusa from Clash of the Titans. I'm pre-ordering it today!!!

    I plan on buying it. Then again SS will probably screw something up as usual, so I may just wait on the reviews.

    It has an audio commentary by Scott (INTRUDER, EVIL DEAD 2) Spiegel and director John Bud Cardos. Also a interview with Cardos.

    Tobe Hooper Was Originally Going To Direct This And Venom But Producers Fired Him Or He Was Unable To Direct These Two Movies

    Ridiculous mess of a movie...could have been a great horror thriller in Hooper's hands, but the producers dumbed it up with a stupid sci-fi angle repleat with absolutely lousy special effects...don't waste your money...

    This played a double bill in my home town once with BEYOND THE DOOR 2(aka. Mario Bava's SHOCK)

    This only played a drive-in in my hometown. I have a clipping featuring The Dark plus! Piranha. That would have been fun, but The Dark would have been terrible to see at a drive-in since many scenes are so...well, dark.

    Anyone see this out yet or a review? Not a lot of websites have this available for preorder.

    It looks like this release has been delayed or something. CD Universe is listing it as simply "Backorder" which usually means cancelled/delayed there. Barnes & Noble has it listed as "This title is not available for ordering. It may be available at a later date." Best Buy and others have removed it from their sites it seems like.

    I hate delays. I'm still looking for "Demon Seed". Has anyone found that? I'm going out later today in hopes of tracking it down.

    your tape was probably mangled at some point at the beginning, and someone thought that a repaired and salvaged copy was better than not having the movie anymore...I used to work at Hollywood Video, and whenever something would happen to one of our older library tapes that was either very difficult or impossible to replace, then we would do our best to splice it.

    So does anybody know what is up with this movie?? All websites seem to have the titles backordered/special order or they don't have it listed at all, and I guess Media Blasters will never get their website up again. My local Best Buy told me it was coming out on Oct.11th, then I went there and they changed it to Oct.18th, but I don't see that being confirmed anywhere else.
