PLEASE NOTE: THIS ITEM HAS A WIDE RELEASE DATE OF 6/27/2023.
From Juan Piquer Simón – the infamous writer/director of PIECES and SLUGS – comes The Restored Director’s Cut of the French/Spanish co-production that remains the most singularly screwy E.T.-influenced film in EuroCult history: When snorkel-nosed furry aliens arrive on Earth, they’ll encounter a foggy wilderness filled with sociopathic poachers, Simón’s twisted vision of what an ‘80s American rock band looks/sounds like, bizarre bursts of violence and pathos, and the boy who befriends a blue-eyed extraterrestrial he names ‘Trumpy’. Discover the movie beyond MST3K, “a very, very weird film” (Through The Shattered Lens) – also known in various versions as RETURN OF E.T., THE UNEARTHLING and POD PEOPLE – now featuring a 4K scan from the 35mm negative with Special Features that include a feature-length documentary on the director.
