Arrow Video visits WEIRD WISCONSIN with Bill Rebane (review)

From the wilds of Wisconsin comes six oddball films from regional filmmaker Bill Rebane.  In MONSTER A-GO GO, a rocket crashlands with a seven-foot tall killer menace on the loose.  In INVASION FROM INNER EARTH, five people in a snowbound mountain cabin battle an alien force that has decimated the planet's human population.  In THE ALPHA INCIDENT, five people are quarantined in a train station when an alien organism contaminates their bodies.  In THE DEMONS OF LUDLOW, a town celebrating its centennial anniversary is gifted a piano that carries a bloody curse.  In THE GAME, a group of famechasing hopefuls are invited to a lonely resort to participate in a game of fear for a million dollar prize. In TWISTER'S REVENGE, three thugs attempt to steal and ransom a high-tech monster car with an intelligence of its own.
