- The opening scene aliens deserve a movie of their own. So does the, “Screaming like banshees” janitor.
- What’s not to like about a movie whose main characters go to Corman University, whose last names are Romero, Carpenter-Hooper and Cronenberg, and are aided by cops Landis and Raimi? Extra-bonus points for the DICK MILLER cameo.
- I’ll be honest; there are too many indelible scenes to report. The whole second half is back-to-back incredible scenes. Even the scenes that didn’t make the final cut are great. Check out an alternative and superior ending HERE.
Is this one out on DVD yet? I know for years fans of this and The Monster Squad were crying for a release, and MS finally got its due last year. I didn’t hear about any similar fanfare for a NOTC release though.
Sadly, It’s still not available on DVD and I could not find any info of a release in the future. It is on TMC this month and on-demand. I’d love to see it letterboxed and with the same treatment as MS. I guess we’ll just have to wait.
The DVD is listed on Amazon, but the release date keeps getting pushed back. I even took part in some kind of survey where you can pick one of two candidates for the box art. This is aÂ celluloid presentÂ for all those people whoÂ think eating at The Sci-Fi Drive In at Disney World is cool. You know who you are. I don’t really care what the other people think. This movie’s gold from start to finish! It had me screeeeaaaming like a banshee!
