Not on home video in the USA
Dr. Vogel, at the behest of “the space program” the lone scientist manning a behavioural science station on top of a mountain somewhere in the arctic parts of the US (I suppose), hasn’t been heard from for four weeks. One would think his employers would be a little faster reacting to loss of contact with him, especially when one keeps in mind that his last radio messages were hinting at a psychological breakdown, but I digress. Anyway, said employers haven’t seen the pre-credit sequence that makes it quite clear that something is absolutely not right up there.
