Default Saturn 3 coming from Scream Factory - December 3, 2013



Saturn 3 Blu-ray

Announced today. Any other Saturn 3 groupies out there excited about finally getting a widescreen Blu ray of this 1980 monstrosity. The sets and art direction should really look spectacular with Farrah to boot!

Now this is awesome news. This film has a very cool look to it, especially the sets. It's low budget for sure, but it has a very unique style. Please Scream Factory don't screw this one up! I can't wait to hear what extras will be included. This has the potential to look pretty stunning on blu-ray.

Hope they will include the deleted scenes of Farrah Fawcett on the upcoming blu-ray.

That whirring sound the robot makes when it moves... that made for a pretty disturbing sound effect.

Yeah the sound effects in this film were very unique - the robot sounds were very creepy.

There's a great poster for this film on this page, the top image (Spanish vintage release poster 1980.)

http://saturn3makingof.com/posters/

I would love to see them use this for cover art instead of the much more common UK/US poster art.

I was captivated by its beauty but at the same time mesmerized by how awful it was. I had the same reaction to WINDOWS which opened the month before.....Saturn 3 is quite the oddity..

I wonder if Shout will be able to find all the footage that was taken out of the film -- including material that was added to NBC's TV broadcasts.

I wasn't aware that this was broadcast on NBC - I must have been too young or somehow just missed it. If they aired deleted material I really do hope it is included as an extra on the blu-ray.

EDIT: Here's the very rare "blue dreamers" scene in German that shows Farrah wearing the black leather outfit shown in this fantastic poster:




I would love for this scene to be included as an extra.

There's a 100% chance this winds up on my "Guilty Pleasures" shelf!

If you're taking requests, can you think about them releasing Thunder Alley? Thanks.

Oh man
the end of this film used to disturb me when I was younger
but
I would suffer through it for Miss Fawcett ..... and the always likable Douglas

Not sure if I would buy, would love to rent it though

This is a great film that I have loved since I was a kid. Talk about a first class cast in a low grade film. The atmosphere and the sound effects make this a truly scary film. I hope they get Keitel to do a commentary or at least an interview. I will be hoping for some great extras on this one.

It's so bad.....but so goooooood. And the robot still looks freaky after all these years. It's funny how a set of lights on stalks can be so damned scary.
