'Best in Blu-ray' is a weekly column that will run on Tuesdays and examine the week's new Blu-ray releases while focusing on recommending titles for both the Blu-ray veteran and newbie.

For Blu-ray Vets:
Twitter Tag Line: A big ball of fun, featuring Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward at their zesty best as they fight tenacious underground critters.
New Special Features: None. All the extras, including a "making of" feature and outtakes, are ported over from the previous DVD release and presented in standard definition.
Transfer/Audio: Problematic. DVD Beaver reports that the transfer is "plagued with prominent edge enhancement," though it does look "significantly better" than the DVD edition. The audio is notably potent for the "depth and aggression of effect sounds."
Replay Value: The imperfections of the video transfer will drive purists mad, so if you're in that camp, you best stay away. If, however, you have a degree of flexibility, you'll find that this 1990 release, directed by Ron Underwood, holds up surprisingly well. Much of the film's value comes from the chemistry between Bacon and Ward, two jocular and charming actors who sound like the friends they play in the story. Michael Gross and Reba McIntire add to the fun as well-armed survivalists. But the movie never descends into condescending camp; it treats the dilemma of dealing with "creatures from beneath" seriously, while never taking itself too seriously.
