Virus [DVD] [1999]

SKU:3680742
Release Date:07/20/1999
Rating:
John Bruno's science-fiction horror film Virus arrives on DVD with a strong widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. An English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while a French soundtrack is mixed in Dolby Digital Surround. Although there are no subtitles, the English soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include production notes, cast and crew bios, and the theatrical trailer. The best aspect of this film, the outer space setting, does not come across as well on the small screen as it does in the theater. Still, fans of the film will not be disappointed with this disc.

    Synopsis


    Virus
    When the salvage tug Sea Star is caught unprepared in a violent storm, it slowly sinks, and the crew, led by Captain Everton (Donald Sutherland), wander upon another ship for refuge. The ship, apparently deserted, turns out to be a Russian research vessel loaded with high-tech electronics. The Sea Star crew, which includes hot-head Kelly "Kit" Foster (Jamie Lee Curtis) and Steve Baker (William Baldwin), soon find that they are not alone, and they also learn the horrible fate of the original crew. The ship had taken on an energy-based alien life-form capable of constructing bodies out of human tissue as easily as electronic parts. The life-form wants to inhabit the planet earth but first must rid the world of the virus that infects it and could kill it -- man. John Bruno, special effects supervisor on Terminator 2 tries to reinvent the haunted house sub-genre in his directorial debut, much as Ridley Scott did in Alien. ~ Ron Wells, Rovi
