Breaking Glass Pictures will open the New Year with the Jan. 20 DVD debut of director Dana Schroeder’s sci-fi thriller, Alien Rising.
If you’re a genre fan, then you just know in your heart of hearts that with the name Lance Henriksen in the cast credits this is one sweet sci-fi entry that is more than worth just a look-see. You will not be disappointed.
On a remote island (research station) Federal Agent Lisa Morgan (Amy Hathaway — Joyride, The Client, etc.) finds herself assigned to help with the understanding of “alien” technology. Boy, is that an understatement … she’s only heard rumors about a derelict spacecraft, etc. etc.
It seems that the good Colonel that is in charge of the facility (played by Henriksen) has more than just the technology gleaned from the alien craft, he has two of the passengers on ice … and these ETs are not happy about that!
Bonus features for this action-sci-fi/thriller — which features a very cool alien creature (and nice f/x) — includes a making-of featurette.
