Lost DVDs/ DVD Rarities

STRANGE INVADERS IS available on DVD, and most likely only for a little while, not mass produced, and once hard to find, is now minimally available. My suggestion is to nab your copy before its 80 bucks on ebay.

Why am I saying this? The 80s flick 1984 stopped production a couple years ago and its gone as high as 100 bucks on ebay, even though its a fairly recent DVD, not a vintage antique. Its about availability, and this one looks like its going to be hard to get in a year or so. Yes, I'm going out on a limb and prophesizing this, but the truth is, I've seen it time and time again. THEY LIVE experienced a short bout of DVD-rarity, and found its price going as high as 50 bucks.

Case and Point: Scott Bakula's alien resistance movie, THE INVADERS is at $80, and its only available in Region 2, available in the sense, only IF YOU CAN FIND IT.

EARTH FINAL CONFLICT season 1 is only available outside the U.S. as well (another obvious conspiracy), and will take you for usually $100 or higher. Season 2? Nowhere to be found.

They Live: So Bad Its Good

Moviehole' s got THEY LIVE at #8 on their "So Bad Its Good" List:

"From its political and social subtext – arising from Carpenter’s own growing distaste with the ever-increasing commercialization of 1980s popular culture and politics - to the over-the-top violence (there’s quite a body count here!), it’s a lot of fun."

Origins of THEY LIVE

Ray Nelson's short story 8 O'Clock in the Morning, was turned into the comic book story Nada, and Nada was made into the paranoid cult classic They Live in 1988.

Ray Nelson's short story can be read here. Visit the Ray Nelson Official site and read his bio. The comic story NADA, was originally published in the April 1986 Alien Encounters Comics #6, from Eclipse, the third story in the issue, which was 8 pages long.

V: Second Generation Novel FIRST LOOK

TOR is releasing the NEW V:Second Generation novel in November. Ilana's V Pages Website has a preview of the advanced copy. Looks goos Ilana.

From what I understand, a mini-series is planned for 2008.

I hope they make it before the world ends!
