“Rudy Ray Moore is The Disco Godfather, owner and MC at the baddest disco in town. But there’s a new evil in the community: Angel Dust. Determined to find and destroy the source of ‘the whack,’ The Disco Godfather becomes a one-man fighting machine from south central to Beverly Hills.
The last of Rudy Ray Moore’s 70s features, DISCO GODFATHER is easily the strangest and most original of his filmic output.

Backed into a corner, Lauren won’t go down without a fight as she turns the tables on her capture.

Shiver-Danielle Harris (Hatchet II & III) stars with Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers) and John Jarratt (Wolf Creek) in this savagely entertaining horror-thriller. The Gryphon is a serial killer with a flair for the dramatic – and a grisly trophy case of victims. But when he sets out to add shy, young secretary Wendy Alden (Harris) to his macabre collection, he gets more than he bargained for. Unfortunately, Wendy’s escape from his first assault only deepens the killer’s twisted obsession – and affection – for her. Always one step ahead of pursuing Detective Delgado (van Dien), the brilliant psychopath penetrates police lines at will, circling ever closer to the target of his deranged fantasies. Until, finally, the only thing standing between Wendy and the Gryphon’s unthinkable desires is her own desperate, indomitable will to survive.”
