A Cracking Sci-fi Region Free Blu-ray!
on 19 August 2015
A vintage slice of Sci-fi that encapsulates the 1960's...and its wonderful! This film has been a favourite of mine since I was a child and it still captures my imagination even today 40 years later. So I was thrilled to discover it on Blu-ray and I can confirm that this film is Region Free.
From Philip Yordan - the man who brought us 1962's 'The Day of the Triffids' - comes a story of Scientists who want to harness the natural power held beneath the earth's crust at its core. Drilling down hundreds of miles through the mantle they detonate an atomic explosion to penetrate the rock and bring the molten magma to the surface. Its a success!! Or is it? They weren't aware of the large pocket of hydrogen gas lying within the layers of rock which gave the explosion a far greater force than they imagined. The explosion has triggered a huge crack in the earths surface and the crack is moving.....
If you enjoy films like 'The Day The Earth Caught Fire', 'On The Beach' and 'When Worlds Collide' then you'll love this. Sadly there are no extras included on the disc, but its a nice addition to any Fantasy and Sci-fi Blu-ray collection. Snap it up whilst you can.
