Boyle's sci-fi-horror divided critics and didn't find an audience, so the DVD is welcome, offering a second chance to look at the generic work and listen to the helmer's extensive commentary, which is particularly intersting when it comes to casting.
Another new DVD that's worthy of a spot in your home video library that's artsy enough to please your film snob friends while remaining visceral enough to keep even the most jaded of horror fans glued to the screen.
