Scream Factory just announced the special features that will be included on their April 7th Blu-ray release of Tobe Hooper’s ‘Invaders From Mars’.  This one has garnered a “cult” status over the years and as always, Scream Factory is giving it the respect it deserves.  Check out the goodies:

  •  New Audio commentary with director Tobe Hooper
  •  The Martians Are Coming! – The Making of “Invaders From Mars”, an all-new retrospective featuring interviews with Director Tobe Hooper, Actor Hunter Carson, Special Creature Effects Artists Alec Gillis and Gino Crognale, and Composer Christopher Young
  •  Theatrical Trailer & TV spot
  •  Original Storyboards
  •  Original Production Illustration Gallery from Artist William Stout with commentary by Stout
  •  Still Gallery

It’s hard to believe that this one is almost 30 years old!  Just a refresher this one stars Karen Black, Hunter Carson, Timothy Bottoms, Louise Fletcher, James Karen, and Bud Cort. The synopsis goes as follows:

 “This space-age creature feature is crawling with horrifying hordes of Martians hell-bent on stealing your soul – as well as your planet! Little David Gardner’s starry-eyed dreams turn into an out-of-this-world nightmare when invaders from the red planet land in his backyard and unleash their hostilities on unsuspecting earthlings! Paralyzed with fear as the aliens take over the minds of his mom, dad and even his schoolmates, David must somehow find a way to stop them -– before they turn the whole human race into brain-dead zombies!”
Again, that’s April 7th.
