ALIENS Movie Blu-Ray Anthology!! SciFi & Horror Lovers!!

Updated on August 5, 2010

As a huge Sci-Fi and Horror movie fan I can say that I am doubly excited for this disc set. I already own the ALIENS Quadrilogy DVD set which was released in 2005 but I have worn many of those discs out already from watching them over and over again. This set is only for Blu-Ray which means the picture will be sharp and the effects will look even better then before. There isn't allot of information about it out there yet but this is what I was able to find out about the special features for each film.
