Mills Creek Entertainment is releasing a double-dose of awesome horror in HD, unfortunately they’re paired up which usually means “compression”. Still, it’s pretty special to get high quality releases of both Deep Rising and The Puppet Masters! The Blu-ray is dated for October 9.
Stephen Sommers (The Mummy, Van Helsing) directed Deep Rising: “Buckle up for edge-of-your seat excitement with the explosive hit ‘Deep Rising’, an unstoppable high seas action thriller that moves at full scream ahead! When a band of ruthless hijackers invade the world’s most luxurious cruise ship, they’re shocked to discover the passengers have mysteriously vanished! But that doesn’t mean they are alone! Something terrifying is lurking just out of sight: a deadly force from the unexplored depths of the ocean that begins to snatch the horrified intruders one by one! Treat Willliams and sexy Famke Janssen lead a group of survivors who must overcome incredible odds in their breathtaking battle to escape the doomed ship alive!”
The Puppet Masters is also a pretty solid flick: “Here’s the edge-of-your-seat thriller that delivers unrelenting suspense and nonstop action! Donald Sutherland leads a team of top-level government agents who make a chilling discovery – extraterrestrial beings have landed on Earth and are quickly taking control of the residents of a small midwestern town – manipulating their bodies and minds like puppets!“
