Another Syfy Channel original movie will invade Blu-ray in February.
In another early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on 'Metal Shifters' for Blu-ray on February 7.
'Metal Shifters' is an out of this world tale that will have you watching the skies, and your back. Two brothers desperate to keep the family business afloat soon find their prayers answered when a Russian satellite dislodges from orbit and crashes into the middle of a nearby field. Unaware the satellite carries a mysterious alien substance; the brothers sell the satellite to a local artist who uses the wreckage in his giant sculpture. But soon the substance brings the giant sculpture to life, creating an iron monster whose only mission is to kill. The cast includes Colby Johannson ('Final Destination 3,' 'Freddy Vs. Jason'), Kavan Smith (“Stargate: Atlantis,” “Eureka”) and Jesse Moss ('Dear Mr. Gacy,' 'Final Destination 3').
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and there doesn't appear to be any supplements.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
