Code Red Alert: The Strangeness (1985)


Code Red bring forth forgotten retro horror! In THE STRANGENESS (1985), a group of explorers surveying an abandoned goldmine are trapped in a cave in, and find themselves at the mercy of a slimy, mysterious creature. Visit Code Red’s blog for a behind the scenes photo.

Mark Sawicki, a well-established spfx expert in Hollywood, was kind enough to come in and help us supervise a telecine of a cult monster film he did many years ago, and he even brought the monster with him! We found the only surviving 16mm elements of this 1980 monster film (it was shot in 16mm) and we did a new 16×9 widescreen 1:78 transfer (as requested by the director) mastered in Hi-Def! We will be doing an audio commentary with Mark, Chris Huntley, and the elusive director coming soon. We will also include 6 short films they have done in USC. This is a rare, cool 80’s monster flick you should definitely check out. Don’t be afraid. It’s only a movie. We are shooting for a August 18th street date.

  1. I was happy when I found 2 VHS of this for $1 each, because it’s a rare movie. After the DVD comes out, they won’t be worth anything.

    I found it to be quite a good movie however, though it was too dark. I am sure the DVD will correct this

  2. I like this creepy little creature flick. It’s kind of like The Boogens only with more slime. Good to see it’s getting a dvd release.

  3. So this was made in 1980 and released in 1985? Sounds like a Sleepaway Camp curse to me! Naw, actually this movie sorta sounds like an 80’s version of The Descent (which is one of my favorite horror movies of the 00’s). I want to see this!!!

  4. Man This Looks Awesome Cant Wait
    I Hope Codered Uses That Artwork Shown Its Wicked Looking
    Maybe Codered Will Release The 1987 Monster Flick THE KINDRED
    As Well

  5. I lOve Code Red

  6. Oh wow. It’s always a nice surprise when films long-forgotten make a comeback. Saw this once on TV back in the eighties. Very glad someone is bringing this back from the dead.

  7. This is one of the worst movies ever made!! I can’t believe they waste the money and energy on this waste of celluloid. If you haven’t seen it, don’t worry, it’s too dark to see anything that goes on in the entire film. It makes Humongous look all bright and shiny!

  8. Well infernus, maybe the reason they are releasing this is so we CAN see it? It has a fair imdb rating, so I think it will be fine. :)

  9. Well, Josh……talk to me after you’ve seen it!

  10. Hi Lord If Its Anything Like The Kindred It Will Be Awesome!
