Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment continues to visit its library of sixties action adventure films with the upcoming release of Mysterious Island.
Considered the sequel to Jules Verne’s 20, 000 Leagues Under the Sea, “Mysterious Island” pits Civil War POWs against mutant animals created by the crafty Captain Nemo of the submarine Nautilus. When the POWs escape a Confederate prison in a balloon, a raging storm pushes the aircraft to a remote Pacific Island. Along with two shipwrecked women, the soldiers fight gigantic crabs, bees, and other beasts who Nemo has made to increase the island’s food supply. But when a volcano on the island erupts, the group must pull together to survive a fiery death.
The DVD will be presented in widescreen and full-frame versions and has been digitally mastered in audio and anamorphic video. Bonus features include, A making of featurette, The Harryhausen Chronicles and This is Dynamation, featurette, a photo gallery and a theatrical trailer.
With suggested retail price of $24.95, the fun arrives just two days before Halloween on October 29th.
