Full Specs & Extras for Scream Factory's VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED: COLLECTOR'S EDITION Blu-ray!


More John Carpenter on Blu-ray is a good thing people! I can't wait to watch this flick as I missed out on it during its initial theatrical run and home video release. I for one am excited to adding this to my Blu-ray collection this April!

Film Synopsis: From the master of suspense, John Carpenter, comes a chilling new version of the sci-fi classic. Something is terribly wrong in the tiny village of Midwich.

After an unseen force invades a quiet coastal town, ten women mysteriously find themselves pregnant. Local physician Dr. Alan Chaffee (Christopher Reeve) and government scientist Dr. Susan Verner (Kirstie Alley) join forces when the women simultaneously give birth... and the reign of supernatural terror begins.

In what The New York Times calls "one scarifying trip," the people of Midwich must try to find a way to stop the unstoppable in the VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED.

Loyal fans of horror master John Carpenter (HALLOWEEN, THEY LIVE) know well the terrifying tale from his 1995 science fiction-horror cult classic VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED, directed by Carpenter and executive produced by Ted Vernon (SCARECROWS), Shep Gordon (THEY LIVE) and Andre Blay (PRINCE OF DARKNESS). The film stars Christopher Reeve (SUPERMAN), Kirstie Alley (STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN), Linda Kozlowski (CROCODILE DUNDEE) and Michael Paré (THE LINCOLN LAWYER).
