As the boy and his grandmother encounter some deceptively glamorous but thoroughly diabolical witches, she wisely whisks him away to a seaside resort. Regrettably, they arrive at precisely the same time that the world’s Grand High Witch has gathered her fellow cronies from around the globe—undercover—to carry out her nefarious plans.

The Invisible Man

The unseen maniac of the Universal monsters canon returns to invisible life in this frightening 2020 reboot.

There are visions of a woman in Henry’s radiator who dances and crushes small, tadpole-like creatures. Henry has a tryst with a woman who lives across the hall, and he has a dream that his head is being used to make pencil erasers.

The Murders at White House Farm

An infamous true crime story. Over thirty years ago, three generations of one family were murdered at their isolated farm. Initial evidence pointed the finger at the daughter of the family who had a history of mental illness, however one detective refused to accept this and delved deeper into the investigation.

Reebok 40th Anniversary Alien Stomper

Forty years after Alien(1979introduced Earth to the mother of all sci-fi nightmares, Reebok is rewinding the story back to the 1970s for an upgraded unisex prototype edition of the iconic ‘Alien Stomper’ sneaker boots. Originally appearing in Aliens (1986) as the signature ass-kicking footwear of franchise hero Ellen Ripley, the new 40 Anniversary Alien Stomper draws inspiration from the original Alien film to create the most series-authentic Alien Stomper yet.

The 40 Anniversary Alien Stomper is an upgraded take on the classic 1986 silhouette. The new edition now features premium-aged leather construction, a material innovation that enhances the sneaker’s tactile experience while also lending it a vintage “from the vaults” appearance.

 Arriving in a cream-white colorway with contrasting blood-red and anthracite detailing, the unisex sneaker is oozing with minute design touches and Easter eggs for die-hard fans. Those details include references to a host of pre-production designs and logos that were never actually used in the film’s final production. making them true prototypes in both our universe and the universe of Alien.  For example, eagle-eyed fans will take special notice of an ultra-rare deviant version of the logo used by the Alienfranchise’s infamous “Weyland-Yutani” corporation, which drops the “D” to read just “Weylan-Yutani”.

 The Stomper’s new packaging is just as lovingly detailed as the sneaker itself. Reebok spared little expense in researching and creating materials for the packaging, which will arrive with a swarm of Alien inuniverse goodies to help maximize the immersion factor. The full loadout includes:

 A certificate of authenticity, backed by the good name of the Weylan-Yutani corporation

Custom dust bags for protecting your stompers from hostile forces

An official ‘Bug Stomping’ field guide

Three unique hang tags, including the alternate Weylan-Yutani logo and an official Alien 40Anniversary badge

The sneaker will arrive in a triangular prism-shaped “Space Fleet Box”, a retro-future design that imagines what a 22 century Reebok box would look like through the eyes of 1979-era sci-fi design. 

 The 40 Anniversary Alien Stomper is set for release on Alien Day, April 26, 2019. The unisex sneaker retails for $175 and will be available at www.Reebok.com/us/alien_stomper
