Trailers from Hell and Oren Peli Catch ‘The Andromeda Strain’

Trailers from Hell and Oren Peli Catch 'The Andromeda Strain'

Today on Trailers from Hell, "Paranormal Activity" writer/director Oren Peli appraises Robert Wise’s understated 1971 diseased panic film "The Andromeda Strain."

A small town in New Mexico is decimated by an alien organism in Robert Wise’s "The Andromeda Strain," based on the first book by Michael Crichton to be brought to the screen. Though Wise’s film was advertised as a wall-to-wall nail-biter ("The suspense will last a lifetime!") the movie is largely inert with a buttoned-down cast (including Arthur Hill and David Wayne) that only adds to the general lethargy. The comparatively mild scenes of violence and nudity caused some to question the film’s "G" rating in 1971.
