I first saw Invisible, but thankfully I found a copy a long time ago. This one was much better, even though Benjamin Knight didn't have as big a role. He was cool in the second.

Yeah, ol' Benjy Knight was just a supporting player in this film, then in the sequel they bumped him up in status to try and make a franchise. I think it may have actually been shot as MANDROID 2, I need to double check my research.

It's not as good as the original. The Mandroid isn't used for evil, Drago has a whole mess of homeless minions, psycho cops, the woman from PREHYSTERIA! didn't return for a starring role.

Bejamin Knight was a main character this time, that was cool.

The music was done by David Arkenstone, one of my favorite New Age Artists.

lol... I loved Invisible. I personally would've liked another film in the series (if you can call it a series). ;)

Picked up a Mandroid VHS Screener and it's Brand New never opened. I figure it will look well in my CB collection.

Quick question. How is a screener copy different from a regular copy?

It's the copy that is sent to video rental stores. They would view it then decide whether or not they what to carry the movie as a rental. It also has writing at the bottom (usually) that states something like "This is a screener, and is not to be sold or distributed". I picked it up because it's a bit rarer then the regular version.

I'll scan the cover, front and back to show the difference in cover art.

Some screeners do have additional uncut footage that differs from the actual release. Arcade is a good example of this.

Pretty good, though I think I liked INVISIBLE just a little more. The Mandroid was cool and I could have seen a series out of this - maybe in America.

SPOILER ALERT

Just realized...the cover for the VHS of the film is one semi-humongous spoiler.
