    HOLY SHIT!!

    Alien 2 (Alien 2 Sulla Terror) is coming to Blu-Ray this fall from Midnight Legacy!

    "Brand new 1.85:1 high definition transfer from the original 35mm negative featuring significant additional footage not seen anywhere in the world.

    Ultra high bitrate AVC encode @36 MBS, on a BD-50, faithfully representing our 2k scan and preserving the integrity and look of film.

    English DTS MA 2.0, fully restored from the original audio masters, and respectful of the original sound design.

    Special features include the only surviving trailer from the mega rare Dutch VHS , and effects outtakes transferred directly from the negative B-roll in full HD.

    30,000 piece, Limited Edition single pressing run designed as a true collector's item for the serious collector. Once sold through, this title will never be available again.

    All Region."

    You can get a BD player REALLY cheap these days. So why not upgrade? :)

    I never even knew this rip-off sequel existed!! Holy shit, this will be a must own for me!

    From the sounds of it, if Midnight Legacy pulls through, they could be a new indie company geared towards the fans to watch for!

    You know, if you want the film on DVD too, you can contact the folks over the website's contact page. I know I did.

    Is this an exclusive buy from their website or will be available on online retailers?

    Although it may not sound it, 30,000 units is a heck of a lot of Blu-Rays for an ultra niche title on a format that still hasn't reached full market saturation. Certainly don't delay in ordering it if you want it, but I have a feeling a lot of those units might take years to move.

    They've stated on other forums asking the same question: it will be available on Amazon.

    I hadn't heard of this film before so I just watched the trailer and it definitely looks like a must buy for me. Be sweet if it comes in that nice dark red case they have pictured too.

    Does this movie have a climax set in a bowling alley (or at least a long sequence set in a bowling alley)? If so I am very excited...I saw this years ago and am pretty sure I found out it was in fact this movie.

    No DVD = No Sale from me. I have three perfectly fine DVD players, and one of them is only two years old. I have no interest or desire in purchasing Bluray.

    Neat news! As I always say, it's sad to lament any company that closes its doors, but there's always a new one to pop up that will more than likely take its place. I know it's more rare these days to hear about a new cult label starting up, but there's at least 2-3 a year, so as far as I'm concerned we don't have anything to worry about as fans outside of dropping a large amount of cash on a company's releases before they go OOP when they announce they're shutting down. Hopefully the slowed-down release schedule of a lot of them recently means we won't have to deal with that either.

    Yeah, the limited edition of Suspiria was only 30,000 units and that was around for nearly a decade.

    I'll be the first in line to get this too. :D

    Blu-ray was well on the radar in 2008 so you must pardon me if I'm not exactly shedding any tears.

    Wow, that is a very Italian trailer.

    Is this movie actually any good? I've seen a few foreign Alien rip-offs over the years, and they've all sucked.
