If your kids are fans of Slugterra (like my children), I have a fun giveaway for you on my dad blog today. Thanks to Shout! Factory and Nerd Corps Entertainment, I’m giving away a Slugterra: Ghoul From Beyond DVD. If you have not seen Slugterra before, it takes place underground on Earth and the stories involve live slugs that are used as ammo. The latest DVD will be available on June 10th for $14.97. The DVD also includes a bonus episode.
Slugterra: Ghoul from Beyond is a 45-minute movie based on the animated television series. Prior to this DVD, my kids and I have only seen Slugterra: Heroes of the Underground, which I reviewed a few months ago. This DVD takes place after Heroes of the Underground. Much later. In Ghoul from Beyond, the main villain is Dr. Blakk. He was supposedly defeated by Eli and the Shane Gang prior to this story. My memory is a little hazy, but I don’t remember Blakk in the Heroes of the Underground DVD. I think he’s a villain that is introduced after Heroes of the Underground, but before Ghoul from Beyond.
Here’s a couple of paragraphs from the press material:
Join the Shane Gang in Slugterra: Ghoul from Beyond, the first feature-length Slugterra adventure. Based on the hit animated television series, Slugterra: Ghoul from Beyond continues the epic sci-fi comedy adventures set deep underground, where the ammo’s alive and only the quick survive. In this luminous, high-tech, underground world, every cavern holds a new adventure, a new battle and weird little slugs to be discovered. Available on DVD June 10th, 2014 from Shout! Factory in collaboration with Nerd Corps Entertainment, this exciting animated movie also includes a bonus ‘slugisode’ and has a suggested retail price of $14.97.
Just when the evil Dr. Blakk has been defeated and it seems like Eli Shane’s duties as protector of Slugterra are getting easier, a new danger emerges from beyond the 99 caverns. Eli and the Shane Gang rush to the rescue, but nothing can prepare them for what they encounter: a slug that can do something no one in Slugterra has ever seen — or heard — a slug do before. Traditional slugslinging no longer applies. Eli will have to engage in a very different kind of duel to save Slugterra and himself.
