The Puppet Masters w/ Donald Sutherland & Keith David lands Blu-ray details

Before we dive too deep into this news, let me just say that I've never seen the film in question. Just the trailer. But the trailer for director Stuart Orme's THE PUPPET MASTERS starring Donald Sutherland, Keith David, Eric Thal, Julie Warner, and Will Patton was one of the most vivid memories I have from spending the night at my friend's house growing up. Basically, it terrified me. 

And it's with this in mind, I have always made mental note to check out the movie if the opportunity ever presented itself. As of this point in my life, this opportunity has never come up, but that may all change soon as Kino Lorber just announced they'll be releasing THE PUPPET MASTERS on Special Edition Blu-ray this December. You can check out the full list of special features below along with the reversible Blu-ray cover art.

The film begins after

An alien spacecraft set down in rural Iowa, and top-secret government agents Andrew Nivens (Donald Sutherland) and his son, Sam (Eric Thal), are sent to investigate. Coming along is NASA biologist Mary Sefton (Julie Warner), and together they make a startling discovery: alien parasites capable of taking over the minds of human beings. And the creatures are multiplying. The race is on for the team to stop the invaders before they turn all of humanity into zombie slaves.
