Isn't this film being bootlegged by the low life company PFE (Pacific Family Entertainment)? I thought I remember in the thread about them bootlegging The Final Countdown that thet were going to try bootlegging that film as well.
I too remember this film fondly - one of those HBO discoveries. And I too am still clinging to an old VHS taped-off-HBO copy of it, wiating for something better. I'd hoped for this one on LaserDisc, but nothing ever came out, and now we're into DVDs and still nothing. Maybe someday...
I'd buy this in a heartbeat after catching it on HBO in the late 90s. Hopefully MGM(or whoever owns it) does this right like they did return of the living dead and Killer Klowns from outer space.This and monster squad are the 80s movies I want most now.
I think there would be interest in this from people who enjoyed "Dawn of the Dead". MGM could do a sweet photoshop rip off cover of the DOTD remake poster and be set.
I enjoyed this movie in the 80's because it tied into people's interest in real life space-happenings of the day, sort of. Lifeforce is the other MGM film dealing with Halley's Comet. From these films we learned that comets were pure evil.
No, this was a recent Paramount/Viacom logo. Paramount apppears to currently have the rights. Paramount did not have video rights in the 80's...the video release was from CBS/FOX. My guess is that Paramount aquired the title through Viacom's purchase of the CBS library. Where did this MGM theory come from?
