We all know the world is going to end next year, so what better way to get in the mood than with these two upcoming releases from Anchor Bay. Set to hit early next year on DVD and Blu-ray, Ice Quake (January 3rd) and Metal Shifters (February 7th) both debuted on the Syfy channel, so now you’ll be able to embrace the end of the world at your own convenience!
In ICE QUAKE, we witness nature’s unforgiving power unleashed, as melting Alaskan permafrost is about to drastically alter a tranquil Christmas Eve. The permafrost thaws underground rivers of volatile liquid methane and creates a succession of violent and destructive earthquakes. The crack now leaks a deadly gas from deep within the earth’s core, and the world could end before New Year’s Eve! It’s up to a single geologist and his family to save the world by stopping this crack from spreading and the gas from getting into a nearby cave system that would destroy the planet. The cast includes Brendan Fehr (“Bones,” “CSI – Miami”) and Victor Garber (“Alias,” Titanic).
METAL SHIFTERS is an out of this world tale that will have you watching the skies, and your back. Two brothers desperate to keep the family business afloat soon find their prayers answered when a Russian satellite dislodges from orbit and crashes into the middle of a nearby field. Unaware the satellite carries a mysterious alien substance; the brothers sell the satellite to a local artist who uses the wreckage in his giant sculpture. But soon the substance brings the giant sculpture to life, creating an iron monster whose only mission is to kill. The cast includes Colby Johannson (Final Destination 3, Freddy Vs. Jason), Kavan Smith (“Stargate: Atlantis,” “Eureka”) and Jesse Moss (Dear Mr. Gacy, Final Destination 3).
NOTE: ART WORK FOR METAL SHIFTERS IS NOT FINAL
