Description by OLDIES.com:

The "Alpha Video Rewind Series" is an ever-growing collection of specially-selected films from our vast library on DVD, now in collectible retro-style packaging inspired by VHS cover art from that format's heyday! Every Alpha Video Rewind Series title also includes a free collectible postcard.

A psychopathic serial strangler is convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Despite his deranged mental state, the killer masters a unique form of astral projection and uses his occult powers to escape. A subsequent rash of "invisible stranglings" has policemen chasing shadows, as victims are murdered by unseen hands right before their eyes. Beleaguered detective Charles Barrett must set a trap to snare the astral maniac before he can kill again.

A cross between The Invisible Man and Psycho, The Astral Factor had a week-long theatrical release before going straight to television. It features a bevy of gorgeous actresses who fall victim to the invisible strangler, including Sue Lyon (Lolita) and Elke Sommer (A Shot in the Dark.) Most notable is a pre-Hart to Hart Stefanie Powers, who has a tasteful nude scene cut from all TV prints!
