Description by OLDIES.com:
The terrifying movie of a world gone mad!...
Scientists warn that the depletion of the earth's ozone layer is reaching critical levels, particularly in higher altitudes. How critical? Enough to unleash the vengeful wrath of the entire animal kingdom! No human is safe, particularly a group of nature-loving hikers (including Christopher George and Lynda Day George) who are constantly menaced by every conceivable mountain-dwelling creature. Dogs, rats, snakes, hawks, owls, mountain lions and bears are out to send a clear message about chlorofluorocarbon abuse. But perhaps the angriest animal of them all is Leslie Nielsen (the Naked Gun series, Forbidden Planet), who, fed up with his lily-livered companions, takes matters into his own hands.
Director William Girdler follows up his 1976 hit film, Grizzly, with this insane, eco-sensitive, nature-runs-amok thrill-ride.
This jam-packed edition features two brand new transfers: Day Of The Animals, a pristine television master from the Paramount vaults in 1.85:1 aspect ratio, and Something Is Out There (Alternate Title), the vintage theatrical release print in its original aspect ratio, 2.35:1.
A group of animal lovers are victims of an ironic twist of fate when mutant wildlife reign terror over them in this fantastical suspense film. These kind souls, who have convened in the woods of Northern California for a two-week camping trip, are delighted to spend time in the nature that they adore. However, the indigenous animals who greet them are no longer cute, gentle creatures; they have been turned into evil, mutated versions of themselves due to the depletion of the ozone layer. A fierce and frightening battle for survival ensues in this unique environmental horror film. Watch for an early appearance from NAKED GUN star Leslie Nielsen!
