Multi-format Invasion!

The Invasion DVD (click for larger image)Is it me or did The Invasion (review) sort of just breeze in and out of theatres with hardly anyone noticing? It had a pretty good cast, but the reshoots kind of made it fall into the “iffy” category for me.

In any case, if you missed its theatrical run, then your chance is coming soon to experience the Body Snatchers remake on all three video formats come January 8th according to DVD Active. The DVD, Blu-ray and HD-DVD releases will all ship with these features:

  • We’ve Been Snatched Before: Invasion in Media History documentary
  • Invasion: A New Story featurette
  • On the Set featurette
  • Invasion: Snatched
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1
  • 2.40:1 anamorphic widescreen

    Too bad there are no special features available to take advantage of the hi-def discs’ capabilities. A game where you ID the infected, maybe? So much potential there. Oh well.

    Mike Phalin

    Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
