“The previous season of “The Walking Dead” ended with Rick and the group outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group’s lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts, and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive. Stories will break apart and intersect. The characters will find love and hate. Peace and conflict. Contentment and terror. And, in the quest to find a permanent, safe place to call home, one question will haunt them… After all they’ve seen, all they’ve done, all they’ve sacrificed, lost, and held on to no matter what the cost… Who do they become?”
“Living in the same universe as The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead is a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark and English teacher Travis Manawa have managed to assemble. The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and our dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.

“Elementary-school teachers (Elijah Wood, Alison Pill, Rainn Wilson) come under attack from children who have been turned into vicious monsters by contaminated chicken nuggets.”
“In the heat of the summer. A lonesome house in the countryside between woods and corn fields. Nine-year-old twin brothers are waiting for their mother. When she comes home, bandaged after cosmetic surgery, nothing is like before. The children start to doubt that this woman is actually their mother. It emerges an existential struggle for identity and fundamental trust.”
“A Terrifying Trilogy of Passion, Poison and Possession! It’s spine-tingling terror in triplicate virtuoso of horror. Vincent Price (Tales of Terror, Madhouse) dials up the depravity in this spellbinding trilogy of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s (The Scarlet Letter) chilling classics! Dripping with demented genius, poisonous plants, oozing blood and a corpse in a wedding gown, Twice Told Tales spins three gripping, diabolical nightmares of madness, mayhem and murder most foul. Price stars in all three stories, including “Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment”, about a scientist who finds the fountain of youth… and lives to regret it; “Rappaccini’s Daughter”, the twisted tale of a demented father whose love for his daughter turns poisonous; and “The House of the Seven Gables”, the ghostly legend of an ancient cursed family who lived for power… and died for greed. The stellar cast includes Sebastian Cabot (The Time Machine), Brett Halsey (Return of the Fly), Beverly Garland (D.O.A.) and Joyce Taylor (13 Frightened Girls!).

“This isn’t long ago, in a galaxy far, far away. This is the not too distant future, next Sunday A.D., so these aren’t the episodes you’re looking for. But know this, friend: Mystery Science Theater 3000 is also an epic tale of heroes and villains, two robot sidekicks, alien races and snappy one-liners. Joel and Mike, the unlucky witnesses to the cheesiest movies in any galaxy, may not have the Force with them, but they have an even more powerful weapon: the riff! And they wield their jokes with sublimely funny accuracy at the dark side of cinema. Join our rebel force in the epic battle against four generally grievous movies from that galactic empire once known as American International Pictures. It will be an attack of the clowns you won’t soon forget.
And may the riff be with you.

War Of The Colossal Beast
“Following the collapse of the civilized worlds, the Overseer, now supreme ruler of the universe, seeks to extend his reign and enslave the remains of humanity. Only revolutionary commander, John Worthy, and his rebel band of fighters stand between freedom and an intergalactic apocalypse.”
“Academy Award Winner Burt Lancaster (Run Silent, Run Deep) delivers one of the finest performances of his career as a hard-boiled major in command of a grubby Vietnam outpost in this classic film of wartime confrontation. The war was still a “conflict” and American soldiers were merely “advisors”, yet the ambushes, the betrayals and the brutality were all very real. While the riveting action concentrates on a single, obscure incident, this excellent, understated and sharply intelligent film illuminates the vast landscape of an era. Directed by veteran Hollywood and TV director Ted Post (Magnum Force) and featuring top-notch cinematography by Harry Stradling (Convoy) with a stellar cast that includes Craig Wasson (Body Double), Marc Singer (The Beastmaster), Jonathan Goldsmith (Most Interesting Man in the World commercials), Joe Unger (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Clyde Kusatsu (The Challenge), James Hong (Big Trouble in Little China), David Clennon (The Thing) and Dabney Coleman (9 to 5).”
“Incensed by the tabloid culture which celebrates it, the L.A. Slasher publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars, while the media and general public in turn begin to question if society is better off without them. A biting, social satire about reality TV and the glorification of people who are famous for simply being famous, L.A. Slasher explores why it has become acceptable and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent – purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior.”
“Scorned by monster girls and unable to get a date for the New Years Eve monster dance, Vlad accepts Dr. Shcherbatova’s “invite” to participate in the James A. Meredith middle school talk show production. Dragging Frankie and Gunnar along, Vlad’s vanity sinks the bros into a lame talk-show filled with soul bearing emotions, facial makeovers and the dreaded New Years Eve human kiss!”
