As good as the success of THE WALKING DEAD has been on TV viewing, it’s also done a lot of harm as far as direct-to-DVD releases go. Now every zombie and pseudo-zombie flick that’s been sitting on the shelves are getting their day in the sun and being released. Take THE TERROR EXPERIMENT for example. Anchor Bay’s dusting this one off from their “2010 Collection.” The film is directed by George Mendeluk and written by D. Todd Deeken and stars Judd Nelson, Jason London, and C. Thomas Howell, who I’m pretty sure has been in every direct-to-video genre flick in the last decade or so!! Here’s the press release:
Reaching into the heavens, the Federal Building is the ultimate symbol of government authority, power, and security. But for some it’s the perfect target to expose our nation’s vulnerability to attack – as well as expose potentially deadly secrets kept from its citizens. It’s only a matter of time…Anchor Bay Entertainment begins The Terror Experiment April 12th on Blu-ray™ and DVD. Directed by George Mendeluk and featuring an all-star cast including Jason London (Out Cold, Dazed and Confused), C. Thomas Howell (E.T. The Extraterrestrial, The Hitcher, The Outsiders, Camel Spiders), Alicia Leigh Willis (“7th Heaven”, “The L Word”, “General Hospital”), Lochlyn Munro (Freddy vs. Jason, White Chicks, Scary Movie), and Alexander Mendeluk (Twilight and Twilight: New Moon) with Robert Carradine (“Lizzie McGuire,” Revenge of the Nerds franchise) and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo’s Fire, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back), The Terror Experiment will take viewers on a pulse-pounding journey through a towering hell above Earth and into an inferno of unstoppable thrills! SRP is $19.98 for the DVD and $24.99 for the Blu-ray™.A terrorist sets off an explosion that rocks the Federal Building and unleashes a toxic gas throughout the ventilation system. His purpose: to expose the Government’s secret biological warfare weapon, a deadly virus that instantly attacks a person’s adrenal system, causing them to become inhumanly aggressive, with an uncontrollable urge to kill each other.
Look for this one on DVD and Blu-ray now!
