An ATOMIC BRAIN INVASION is heading for Earth, and we’ve got
the scoop on the DVD release, including the first look at the final art (and a
design that was dropped) and the trailer, plus the skinny on forthcoming discs
of another pair of genre flicks.
Camp Motion Pictures gave Fango the word that ATOMIC BRAIN
INVASION, from prolific director Richard Griffin, lands October 2 on DVD as
well as digital markets. Set in 1956 in a small New England town, the movie
focuses on a group of high-schoolers trying to stop an invading army of brain
creatures from abducting none other than Elvis Presley. The cast includes Sarah
Nicklin, David Lavallee, Jr., Michael Reed, Rich Tretheway, Alexandra Cipolla,
David Wilson, Daniel Lee White, Colin Carlton and Brandon Luis Aponte; special
features accompanying the 16x9 transfer on the disc include audio commentary by
Griffin, producer Ted Marr and actors White and Wilson, plus a Camp Motion
Pictures trailer vault; retail price is $19.98.
You can see the trailer after the covers below, the first of
which is the release version. Camp’s Paige Davis tells Fango, “In our efforts
to convey the all-ages appropriateness and sheer entertainment value of what is
in my opinion Richard’s strongest film to date, we considered and discarded
many strong marketing campaigns—ultimately selecting an original oil painting
by noted illustrator and artist Vince Evans, creator of the original art for
THE BASEMENT VHS/DVD Collection. We felt, and Richard agreed, that the painting
evokes both EC Comics covers and ’80s horror/comedies, sources that served as
inspiration for the film.”
Camp’s sister company Independent Entertainment has director
Eamon Hardiman’s PORKCHOP II: RISE OF THE RIND and ZOMBIE BABIES coming
September 25. The former is the second in Hardiman’s trilogy of bloodbaths
concerning a pig-masked killer terrorizing a small town (which Hardiman
discussed with us here),
while the latter is about aborted fetuses that are reanimated and go on a
flesheating rampage. Both of these discs will include audio commentary,
behind-the-scenes segments and trailers, retailing for $14.95 each. You can
