Inside an isolated airport, seven anxious passengers learn that their charter flight has been grounded by a blizzard. The unhappy passengers are soon stunned into silence by the arrival of Jack Edwards (BRUCE CAMPBELL), a convicted murderer escorted by two guards. But these soon prove to be the least of the passengers’ problems, as they realize that some members of the group are not who, or what, they seem.



This release comes with a matted slip cover. Not a whole lot of features but there is an Audio Commentary with Director Sean S. Cunningham and Executive Producer Chuck Simon, along with the Alien Costume Test footage.

Terminal Invasion is another odd movie to get the high-def treatment, but here we are. The movie is presented in its original 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and given a 1080p high-definition transfer, provided probably by Universal as-is. Still, detail on this made-for-TV movie (airing on The Sci-Fi Channel in 2002) is fairly sharp while colors are on the more muted side as it is a dimly lit movie, perhaps to disguise the cheap production design not to mention the poor visual effects.

The disc comes with an adequate if not basic DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track. Dialogue comes across okay though at times a bit muffled in a few scenes, while the more action-centric scenes were well balanced however nothing that will put your surround system to the test.
