1970s apocalyptic sci-fi. When Dr.Charles Forbin (Eric Braeden) creates a supercomputer capable of controlling America's nuclear defences, it detects the presence of its previously unknown Russian equivalent, and insists on being linked to it. But when the two machines are switched on, they immediately take control, merging into one supercomputer by the name of Colossus, issuing its own demands for the earth's management, and ruthlessly putting down any signs of dissent. With Colossus gaining more power daily, and threatening world destruction if its demands are not met, Forbin secretly enlists the help of other scientists to form a resistance group aimed at restoring normality.

Nikkatsu, the oldest film studio in Japan, inaugurated a star system in the late 1950s, finding talent and contracting them to a series of wild genre pictures. This collection celebrates these Diamond Guys with three classic films from directors Buichi Saito (Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in Peril), Ko Nakahira (Crazed Fruit), and Haruyasu Noguchi, who is a new discovery for the West.
In Saito s Tokyo Mighty Guy, mega star Akira Kobayashi stars as Jiro in the rambunctious tale of a chef who opens a restaurant in the busy Ginza district. His culinary skills and dashing good looks bring in the women as well as unwanted trouble, while an explosive political scandal builds around his girlfriend s business...
Next, Jo Shishido (Massacre Gun, Retaliation), one of the most popular Diamond Guys in the West, stars in Danger Paws, a crime caper from Ko Nakahira about counterfeiting. When one billion yen goes AWOL, Joe the Ace (Shishido) spies an opportunity to get rich quick, but things soon go wrong as it turns out he isn t the only one who ll stop at nothing to get his hands on the missing cash...

The legendary horror star Paul Naschy (WEREWOLF SHADOW) is back to his frightening antics in CRIMSON, a splatterfest with a very complicated plot. When a band of criminals botch a jewel heist, their leader is shot in the head. A strange local physician devises a bizarre solution to his injury--murder an enemy and use HIS brain as a transplant. The horrors continue when the brain turns out to be that of a diabolical murderer.
Horror legend Paul Naschy (Werewolf Shadow, School Killer) stars in this outrageous combination of medical horror, heist action, and dark eroticism. After a jewel robbery goes horribly wrong and their leader, Jack (Naschy), is shot in the head, a band of thieves goes to a local doctor for help. To save their friend's life, the criminals devise a unique solution: kill their psychopathic worst enemy, toss his body onto a railroad track in front of an oncoming train, and use the severed head for a brain transplant! Unfortunately the unwilling donor, the Sadist, turns Jack into a raging lunatic bent on murder and destruction!
Newly re-mastered in HD! When a young scientist's experiments with a new radioactive isotope cause it to double in size every twelve hours, a nearby town's existence is threatened by the deadly radiation. The Magnetic Monster was the first episode of producer and writer Ivan Tors (OSI Office of Scientific Investigation) trilogy, followed by Riders to the Star (1954) and the classic 3-D film, Gog (1954). Co-written and directed by Curt Siodmak (Bride of the Gorilla) and starring Richard Carlson (The Maze), King Donovan (The Defiant Ones), Strother Martin (Cool Hand Luke), Harry Ellerbe (House of Usher) and Jean Byron (Invisible Invaders).
A rare science fiction film made in National Socialist Germany, Karl Hartl's GOLD is a high-tech thriller dramatizing the ongoing war between scientific progress and corporate greed (resurrecting some of the themes and spectacle of Fritz Lang's Metropolis). Hans Albers stars as Professor Holk, an idealistic scientist developing the process of atomic fracturing, constructing an enormous electrical device to transform common lead into gold. When the operation is sabotaged by corporate rivals, resulting in the death of Holk's mentor (Friedrich Kayssler), Holk must accept the backing of a ruthless English businessman, John Wills (Michael Bohnen), whose interest in atomic fracturing is purely economic. Though he makes a deal with the devil, in order to continue his research, Holk recognizes it as a golden opportunity not for a paycheck, but for payback and plots to destroy Wills's titanic gold-making machinery. While Holk enacts his revenge, he captures the interest of the millionaire's rebellious daughter (Brigitte Helm, Metropolis), who is enthralled by the scientist's vision and integrity. GOLD is not only a handsomely-produced drama of corporate espionage, it also reveals the ways in which English and American culture was subtly condemned in films made under the Third Reich.
When it comes to trouble, make his a double! Welcome to America's Wild - and very wacky - West! Burt Reynolds (Gator), Clint Walker (More Dead Than Alive), Ossie Davis (The Scalphunters) and Angie Dickinson (Rio Bravo) star in this tongue-in-cheek tale of love, lust and larceny that's brimming with real charm and sharp wit. Thanks to ingenious plot twists, hilarious blunders and delightful chemistry, Sam Whiskey is a comely caper full of mischief and mayhem that is altogether intoxicating. Even crooks have standards - and keeping the loot is usually one of them. But when cowboy con artist Sam (Reynolds) falls head over spurs for a sexy widow (Dickinson), he finds himself compromising a lot more than his principles. After she seduces him into helping her break into the US Mint - to return a fortune in stolen gold - Sam begins to suspect that honesty might have some very ample rewards. Wonderfully directed by western specialist Arnold Laven (Rough Night in Jericho) with a great script by William W. Norton (White Lightning, Gator).
