Sparks’ rage-fueled quest for vengeance ignites a battle that will change the world and alter his destiny, forever.”

Becoming withdrawn and beginning to exhibit strange behavior, their parents quickly assume something sinister happened to them. But after hearing an ominous local legend, the concerned mother and father begin to realize that their children may have fallen prey to something inhuman and that this dark, unstoppable evil has now returned home with them.”

Tom Holland’s Twisted Tales

“Horror legend Tom Holland (Child’s Play, Fright Night) dares you to join him for nine nerve-shredding, totally Twisted Tales. Serving up a mind-bending assortment of the macabre, it’s an anthology fine-tuned to keep you on the edge of your seat. A new drug offers users a glimpse of the future… with beastly consequences. A murderous husband is stalked by his own cell phone. A jilted lover wreaks satanic vengeance. The nightmarish action then leads to worlds haunted by dark magic, demonic possession, vampires, witches and more in this seriously freaky festival of fear.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

“In fifteenth century Paris, the brother of the archdeacon plots with the gypsy king to foment a peasant revolt. Meanwhile, a freakish hunchback falls in love with the gypsy queen.”

The Flesh & Blood Show

“A group of trendy young actors and actresses assemble at a run-down theatre at the end of a pier in an out-of-season British coastal resort. Hired by the mysterious Theatre Group 40 to put together the improvisation revue, The Flesh and Blood Show, the actors are soon at the mercy of a madman who begins working his way through their number. The story takes its cue from Agatha Christie’s venerable Ten Little Indians – a group of strangers are invited to a remote locale, where they fall prey to an unseen assassin. While Walker’s subsequent horror pictures tended to phase out the carnal aspect, his background in sexploitation is abundantly evident here – softcore groping and plentiful nudity dominate the first half of the picture, and there is plenty of mayhem.”

Frightmare

“Years after being committed to an insane asylum for practicing cannibalism, a married couple (Rupert Davies and Sheila Keith) are let back into society… Of all the grisly horrors directed by Pete Walker, Britain’s chief specialist in shock cinema, Frightmare is perhaps his best known work. Much of this has to do with the memorably lurid ad campaign, not to mention the indelible image of elderly Sheila Keith advancing towards the camera, wide-eyed and brandishing a power drill. Typical of Walker’s films, Frightmare abandons subtlety in favor of outright jabs at the establishment while embracing graphic gore and mayhem in a manner that makes the Hammer films of the period look positively quaint in comparison.”

Outpost: Rise of the Spetsnaz

“In the third installment of the hit Nazi Zombie action-horror franchise, OUTPOST III: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ, we discover the horrifying origins of these supernatural soldiers as they battle the most ruthless and notorious of all military special forces: the Russian Spetsnaz. Bryan Larkin stars as the lead Russian Dolokhov alongside James The Colossus Thompson (Ultimate Combat World Heavyweight Champion) as The Berserker.”

Contracted

“After a lapse in her relationship with her lover (Katie Stegeman) forces twenty-something party girl Samantha (Najarra Townsend) to move back in with her overbearing mother (Caroline Williams, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), things seem to be at an all-time low. But the devil-may-care Samantha soon finds escape in a one-night stand with a mysterious man (Simon Barrett, V/H/S) who leaves her hung-over, guilt-ridden and infected. Uncertain of the disease or the man who gave it to her, Samantha attempts to hide it from her loved ones. But she soon realizes that she is not just the victim of an STD, but rather the host of something much more catastrophic, and that she and those around her are in mortal danger. Part zombie film and part body-horror shocker, director Eric England s CONTRACTED is a skin-crawling experience in biological horror.”

Flu

“The worst epidemic ever seen is sweeping through the suburb of Seoul at a rate of 3.4 Sec. per person. 100% fatality.”

20ft Below: The Darkness Descending


“Below the streets of New York is a dark and dangerous world hidden in the shadows of abandoned subway tunnels and miles of forgotten infrastructure. When a young documentary filmmaker goes into these tunnels to uncover the unseen stories of the people living below our feet, she finds out that there is more to be afraid of than the dark. A mysterious figure, living beyond the reach of the law, has declared war on the outside world that threatens to tear apart the fragile underground society living in the tunnels and maybe even the city above it.”

Cybergeddon

“Cybergeddon follows the story of agent Chloe Jocelyn as she investigates a slew of seemingly unrelated cyber attacks with fellow agent Frank Parker and incarcerated master hacker Chase Rabbit Rosen.

After shooting the ranch owner, drugging the Game Warden, and narrowly escaping an insidious hillbilly gang led by British magnifico, Billy Ray, the boys must not only survive an impending zombie melee but each other. BUCK WILD turns the buddy comedy upside down while tearing zombies inside out in this tongue-in-cheek adventure through South Texas.”

Barricade

“After the death of his wife, a father (Emmy Award winner Eric McCormack, Will & Grace) takes his two small children to a secluded cabin in the mountains to escape and seek solace. However, when a freak winter storm cuts off all communications to the outside world, horrific events begin to occur in this chilling film from WWE Studios.”

Battle of the Undead

“Doron, an Israeli security operative, takes on one last mission: go to Lebanon and capture a top member of the Hezbollah terrorist organization.
