Title 013 on the 101 Films Black Label will be the UK Blu-ray debut for action-packed sci-fi thriller SCREAMERS (1995), starring Peter Weller (Robocop) and based on the Philip K. Dick short story Second Variety.
The year is 2078. The man is rebel Alliance Commander Col. Joseph Hendricksson (Weller), assigned to protect the Sirius 6B outpost from ravage and plunder at the hands of the New Economic Bloc. His state-of-the-art weaponry are known as Screamers: manmade killing devices programmed to eliminate all enemy life forms. Screamers travel underground, their intent to kill announced by piercing shrieks. They dissect their victims with sushi precision, then eradicate all traces of the carnage. They are lethal. Effective. Tidy. And somehow, they are mutating – self-replicating into human form – and slaughtering every beating heart on the planet.
Set on a war-ravaged mining planet in 2078, SCREAMERS are manmade killing machines, employed by The Alliance against the soldiers of the New Economic Bloc, burrowing underground and dispatching the enemy with brutal efficiency. As the respective sides seek to negotiate an end to hostilities, a new enemy emerges.
