    Following in the footsteps of Francis Ford Coppola and Peter Bogdanovich, Roger Corman protégé Carl Colpaert (The Crew) made his directorial debut by combining repurposed excerpts from a foreign film – in this case, Mamoru Oshii’s (Ghost In The Shell) spellbinding 1985 anime Angel’s Egg – with new live action footage shot in America. The result is In The Aftermath, a haunting post-apocalyptic vision like no other.

    In a radiation-soaked wasteland, two surviving soldiers, Frank and Goose, search for essential supplies amid the rubble. After a violent confrontation, Frank is haunted by visions of an angelic young girl holding a giant egg, herself a refugee from another world altogether. Could the egg be the key to saving both their worlds?

    A unique mash-up of 1980s B-movie nuclear paranoia and hauntingly lyrical animation, In The Aftermath is presented in a stunning new restoration that highlights Oshii’s visionary genius and Colpaert’s low-budget ingenuity.

    I like this one for some reason, but not enough to upgrade from the Code Red. I would have if Angel's Egg itself was on it.

    Very odd choice for Arrow considering how badly it has been received in the past.
    I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.

    The Japanese blu of Angel’s Egg is beautiful and reasonably priced on Amazon japan. My daughter bought it last summer. No English on the disc, but the movie only has about 12 lines of dialog that aren’t just someone saying “What?l

    Thanks, I'll take a look next time I make an order from Japan. There are a few titles I want to get from there, such as Hammer's The Abominable Snowman which no other country seems to be in a rush to release.
