Word comes from Blue Underground, director William Lustig's DVD company, that Alien Contamination will be released in a beatiful, restored, unedited, surround-sound edition on February 11. This is an interesting coincidence, because Alien Contamination is an early Cannon pick-up from Italy that was originally released on the long-departed Paragon Video in the U.S. The Apple, showing on February 14 in West L.A., was another of the few early Cannon films released on Paragon.

Alien Contamination is truly wonderful, an Alien rip-off from Italian director Luigi "Hercules" Cozzi with inventive gore effects and a funky Goblin synth score. Support Blue Underground and pick up your copy today!
