One of the most underrated creature feature’s (and a personal favorite) is George P. Cosmatos’ LEVIATHAN. Sure, it’s basically an ALIEN and THE THING body-horror clone albeit with a deep sea locale, but the ensemble of character actors (ROBOCOP himself Peter Weller, GHOSTBUSTER‘s Ernie Hudson, and even THEY LIVE‘s Meg Foster as a steely corporate head!) and spectacular creature effects by Stan Winston make it stand on its’ own.
Scream Factory thinks so too, as they are now set to give the film it’s HD debut and release it during their so-called “Summer of Fear”! Here’s what they had to say:
Our “Summer of Fear” release slate is about to get drenched. We’re thrilled to report that we will be bringing the 1989 underwater monster flick LEVIATHAN to Blu-ray for the first time this August! We know this will please many of you as it’s been requested several times. No further details to report back at this time but we’ll keep you posted on developments in a few months.
