Anchor Bay set to release The Fallen Ones on DVD

Promising primeval chills with blood-racing CGI special effects, Anchor Bay Entertainment plans to release The Fallen Ones on DVD, loaded with special features, on Sept. 20th with a suggested retail price of 19.98.

First aired on the Sci-Fi Channel in May 2005, The Fallen Ones has an all-star cast featuring Casper Van Dien, Robert Wagner, Kristen Miller, and Tom Bosley. The film was written, edited and directed by special effects master Kevin Van Hook.

The film follows Matt Fletcher (played by Van Dien) an archaeologist who uncovers a hidden tomb containing the mummified remains of a long dead warrior – who just happens to be about 42-foot tall.

The giant has been buried since the time of the great flood, as described in the Bible, and soon evidence is uncovered that reveals the creature to be Ammon The Destroyer – the unholy offspring of a human woman and a fallen angel.

The DVD will come loaded with special features including “Giants In The Earth” – the making of The Fallen Ones; “Creating Aramis the Mummy;” “Animatics: Pre-Visualization by Forum Visual Effects;” and audio commentary from Van Hook and others from the film’s crew.

The Fallen Ones special features will also include a storyboard gallery; theatrical trailer; still gallery; and the screenplay for DVD-ROM.

The Fallen Ones is available for pre-order at Amazon. As of yet, there is not a release date for the UK. Visit the film’s database for more information.
