    HALF MAN... HALF ANT... ALL TERROR! So says the advertising campaign for Mant!, the latest low-budget schlock-horror classic from cigar-chomping producer Lawrence Woolsey (John Goodman, The Big Lebowski), who more than makes up for his films' lack of production values by festooning them with gimmicks that would turn even William Castle (The Tingler) green with envy. But the most potent gimmick of all is accidental: Woolsey schedules a sneak preview of Mant! in Key West, Florida, in October 1962, unaware that the Cuban missile crisis is about to flare up. Will the threat of genuine nuclear war distract the locals from the movie, or will they find it doubly terrifying? Directed by the legendary Joe Dante (The Burbs), this delightful film isn t just an affectionate love-letter to the sci-fi and horror films that he grew up with in the 1950s and 60s, it s also a witty and intelligent exploration of the way that the most successful genre films worked by preying on the very real fears of their audiences about everything from Soviet satellite launches to atomic mutation. SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS: High definition digital transfer supplied by NBC Universal Lossless stereo audio Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing Paranoia in Ant Vision, a discussion with director Joe Dante about the making of the film Mant!, the full length version of the film-within-a-film Discussion with Joe Dante on the effects of Mant! Vintage making of featurette Rare on-set footage, sourced from Joe Dante s personal collection Original theatrical trailer Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys
