This gory British horror satire features a hammy Michael Gough as Doctor Storm, the demented overseer of a bizarre health resort advertising "Hairy Holidays" for teenage hipsters -- on whom he secretly performs diabolical mind experiments, turning them into mindless automatons directed by a remote-control device. Those lucky enough to escape the doctor's operating table are invariably tracked down by a leather-clad bike gang or decapitated by the doctor's car (thanks to handy fender-mounted scythes). Into this trap falls pop music star Robin Askwith, whose quest for a stress-relieving getaway lands him in Gough's house of horrors. Oblivious, at first, to his impending fate (thanks to the diverting presence of the doctor's pretty niece, Vanessa Shaw), Askwith eventually realizes that the fellow patients look just a bit too relaxed for comfort. Ostensibly the blackest of black comedies, some aspects of the film actually presage Lindsay Anderson's far more sophisticated Britannia Hospital, though the satire here is far less intelligent. The biggest laughs are provided by the badly dated, ultra-mod '60s clothing and dialogue.
DRILLER A dark and amusing tale of alien abduction, drugged up naked youth, drilling and killing. An ordinary man, abducted by aliens, is turned into a subhuman cybernetic killing machine. The aliens are his master, controlling his every word, thought and action. To please their evil desires, he drills and kills his way through a lost rock band, teens fulfilling their sexual destiny, and anyone who bothers to get in his way. Nonetheless, his Alien Controllers have a bigger plan for him. His mission: To End the Human Race. DRILLER KILLER Abel Ferrara s 1979 breakthrough is one of his best-known but least appreciated films. The film thwarts any preconceived notions of what a horror movie should be. Glam, trash, pre-punk and horrific, DRILLER KILLER is a misunderstood film. The film is a horrifying look into the recesses of a grubby city and a disturbed mind and refuses to make concessions to any notions of good taste or commercial filmmaking. Ugly and transgressive, it is for open-minded viewers only. It is a corrupting tale of a mind liberated by psychosis by the director of the original BAD LIEUTENANT. A Video Nasty. Banned in Germany. Banned in England for nearly 20 years. Bodycount :11. The Late Night Double Feature Edition includes: Driller Driller Killer the Driller trailer the Night of the Driller trailer the trailer for A Hole In the Head and the limited edition DRILLER comic book!
Amy (Ginny Weirick), a small-town girl meets and falls in love with Dan (Chris Divecchio), a mysterious drifter. Amy learns that Dan possesses a family curse and the unimaginable horror that was passed on to him by his father, Bender (Max Ryan). Dan and Amy’s love is put to the test when town locals (Billy Drago, Maria Conchita Alonso, Chris Mulkey) unite in the ultimate showdown with Bender to eliminate the terror he has brought to their town.
Heroic earthling Flash Gordon saves the world from the nefarious Ming the Merciless in this lavish, intentionally campy adaptation of the famous sci-fi comic strip. The story is as basic as space operas get: Ming (Max von Sydow) has developed a plan to destroy the Earth, and Flash (Sam J. Jones) and his attractive companion, Dale Arden (Melody Anderson), are called upon to stop him. Along the way, Flash must battle Ming's goons and the temptations of a luscious space princess. Previously the basis for a more straight-faced 1930s adventure serial, Flash's story is mined here for exaggerated, cartoon humor by screenwriter Lorenzo Semple Jr., a central figure in the similarly campy '60s Batman television series. The simplistic plot mainly serves as an excuse for spectacular sets and cartoonish action sequences, all set to an appropriately over-the-top rock score by Queen. Certainly not a film to turn to for serious excitement, fine performances, or character development, Flash Gordon has nevertheless developed an appreciative cult of fans who admire the film's humorous approach and the detailed, colorful production design.

He believes he’s found it when he marries Susan Maine and becomes the stepfather to Susan’s 16-year-old daughter, Stephanie. But Stephanie gets an uneasy feeling when she is around Jerry with his “Father Knows Best” attitude — she can see that there is a darker side behind his cheerful exterior...

A military-trained assassin is caught in a deadly quagmire of deception, family secrets, and forbidden love while attempting to carry out his last job in this thriller featuring Eric Roberts. Jacob Tate has seen his fair share of death, and now he's looking to get out of the game. His latest target is Diane Shaw, a small town schoolteacher who mistakes him for the brother she never met.

With their lives on the line, Jacob must now choose between being Diane's protector, or her most feared predator.
Don’t miss these three mesmerizing and psychotropic features by artist and filmmaker Eduardo Cemano, the man responsible for some of the most groundbreaking films of 1970s adult cinema, now available for the first time on DVD. This three-film collection, the second in After Hours Cinema’s Eudardo Cemano Grindhouse Director Series, includes Cemano’s core “trilogy” of ultra-erotic, hardcore classics: THE HEALERS (1972), FONGALULI (1972), and MADAME ZENOBIA(1973), along with an array of exciting extras, including extensive director commentaries, interviews, liners notes and more.
Allan Dwan's assured direction is the principal selling card of Republic's Belle le Grand.
Based on a story by Peter B. Kyne, the film stars Vera Ralston as the title character, an
ex-jailbird who becomes the gambling queen of old San Francisco. Upon meeting miner
John Kilton (John Carroll), Belle increases her riches by selling shares of Kilton's silver
lode. Despite Belle's anger over Kilton's dalliance with her younger sister Nan (Muriel
Lawrence), she manages to save him from the evil machinations of all-purpose villain
Montgomery Crane (Stephen Chase). Never much of an actress, Vera Ralston nonetheless
delivers one of her better performances in Belle le Grand, though she is upstaged by such
veteran barnstormers as Hope Emerson, John Qualen and Grant Withers.
Trail of the Vigilantes was conceived as a straight action picture, but was reshaped during filming into a comedy western in the Destry Rides Again mode. Franchot Tone is the unlikely hero, an undercover agent sent west to halt the activities of rustler Warren William. The object of ridicule thanks to his dudelike ways, Tone makes a couple of powerful friends in the form of saloon brawlers Broderick Crawford and Andy Devine. The film proceeds in a
comic vein for several reels (including setpieces featuring Mischa Auer, who'd also been in Destry) before getting down to business with a lengthy, straight-faced action finale. Trail of the Vigilantes didn't do as well as Destry Rides Again, perhaps because there was no counterpart to Destry's Marlene Dietrich (leading lady Peggy Moran is appealing, but hardly in Dietrich's league).
Wendell Corey and Forrest Tucker, the Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy of Republic, star as a pair of World War II Army Air Corps officers. In between their battles over the affections of beautiful nurse Vera Hruba Ralston,Corey and Tucker prepare to fly a bombing mission in the South Pacific.
Before boarding their B29 Superfortress, Tucker appears to be chickening out, but he's steadfastly at his cockpit post at takeoff time. For a big-budget war picture, Wild Blue Yonder contains a surprising amount of chorus boy-style singing. The best musical vignette is supporting player Phil Harris' rendition of his hit song "The Thing"
Long thought lost, the 1917 western Straight Shootin' was rediscovered in the vaults of the Czech Film Archive.Thus, and thankfully, was safely preserved the very first feature-length effort of director John Ford. Harry Carey stars as a "good badman" type, slightly emulating William S. Hart without ever sacrificing his own distinct style. A professional gunman, Carey intervenes on behalf of the downtrodden homesteaders during a violent range war.Expanded from its intended two-reel length to five reels during production, the film allowed Ford to invest a great deal of humanity in his characters. The fact that no one is shown as wholly good or wholly evil adds to the overall veneer of realism, as do occasional on-screen
"accidents" such as supporting actor Hoot Gibson's obviously unrehearsed tumble from a horse. Many of the locations utilized in Straight Shootin', notably a thin trail through a deep gorge (not a natural formation, as has often been assumed, but a man-made trail created for a never-completed railroad line), would pop up time and again in Ford's silent and talkie films. Though only 22 at the time of Straight Shootin', John Ford directed with the self-assuredness of a man twice his age; the result was a film that looked more like a slick product of the 1920s, rather than an assembly-line star vehicle of 1917.
Audie Murphy is again the kid who puts on a badge to catch the bad guy, skillfully played by Barry Sullivan. On the way back to town the two develop a curiously close relationship - Sullivan passes up several
chances to get away - but in the end Sullivan "asks for it" and Murphy obliges.
