    Corman's New Concorde company has been releasing a lot of the great New World films from the 70s and 80s on DVD. Maybe they'll get to this one in the near future.

    Isn't this the one that had Erin "Joanie from Happy Days" Moran in it along with Robert "Freddie Kruger" and Ray "My Favorite Martian" Walston?
    Count me in, for MORE than the giant worm scene! [​IMG]

    Well I have been picking up all of the New Concorde DVDs as they come out. They tend to be a bunch of fun.

    I have not gotten around to watching them all yet but....

    The Whole Massacre Series (I did not like Soririty Massacre 2), The Nest, Not of The Earth, The Unborn, and a few others I have were not great movies but were fun movies.

    I have the image LD, and boy is it red!

    It's way better than the VHS, but this movie desrves better.

    Its the best worst-piece-o' crap-sci-fi-worm screwing a big-busted-wench-with-my-favorite-martian guest starring flick ever.

    I'd get it just to add to my James Cameron collection; he did the production design, and I believe he also directed second unit.

    Anchor Bay only has rights to certain New World films made after around 1984. New Concorde has the ones made before that period and are putting them out on DVD (thankfully!) a few at a time.

    Hey, maybe we could get that whole trilogy:
    Galaxy of Terror
    Planet of Horrors
    Forbidden World
    Nothing beats early-80's sci-fi horror crap! Unrelated but similar; I remember seeing a movie called Nightflyers...

    Nightflyers is a cinematic masterpiece that desevers to be on DVD in a special edition.

    Fior having no budget, no name actors, and very little plot, this movie entertains!

    Perfect triple bill is Night of the Comet, Nightflyers, and Nightmares. All weak on plot, but biog on entertainment value.
