When a college student unfriends a mysterious girl online, she finds herself fighting a demonic presence that wants to make her lonely by killing her closest friends.

Paralyzed after a terrible accident, Dana struggles to regain her life and family when she encounters a malevolent ghost in her hospital room.

A sequel to the underground hit Junkbucket, Junk Bonds: The Return of Junkbucket lovingly satirizes the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, as we witness the terror and butchery wreaked upon Lake Pakajanomo, Washington at the hands of Junkbucket and his newfound family of phallic cannibals. As charmingly twisted as any movie you’ll see this year, Junk Bonds: The Return of Junkbucket is the antithesis of PG-13 horror and mindless remakes. He’s still not a garbage man, but he’s come back for your junk!

Director Don Dohler’s homage to the classic sci-fi 1950’s creature features, THE ALIEN FACTOR (1978), has endured the passage of time to become the standard ”comfort food” of a generation of eager aficionados. Filmed in Baltimore, Maryland, the movie boasts a gaggle of monster suits, clever miniatures and even a stop-motion beast brought to life by then-aspiring animation wizard, Ernest D. Farino (The Terminator). Local actors Don Leifert, Dick Dyzel, Eleanor Herman and George Stover infuse the film with an enthusiastic zest that belies the film’s tiny budget, adding immeasurably to the charm that is THE ALIEN FACTOR. This special 40th Anniversary Edition contains extensive bonus features including cast & crew audio commentary, behind-the-scenes featurette, blooper reel, alternate scenes, cast & crew reunion featurette, Retromedia Drive-in Theater episode wrap-arounds. Presented in 1.78 enhanced-widescreen.

Filmed deep in the swamps of Central Florida, THE ALIEN DEAD (1980) barely squeezed by on its meager shoestring budget of $12,000. Graduating to 16mm color film from his earlier black & white effort THE BRAIN LEECHES (1978), burgeoning filmmaker Fred Olen Ray crafted an astonishingly crude tale of aquatic zombies and the characters who would become their victims. In what would later become a trademark of Ray’s work, the movie features serial icon, Buster Crabbe (Flash Gordon), a marquee star from the director’s childhood. The film has, at times, a strange gauzy, nightmare-like quality hanging over it: a surreal, netherworld of dream images that threaten to engulf the characters. Scratch your head in awe and wonder at THE ALIEN DEAD. Also included here is the director’s first feature effort, THE BRAIN LEECHES, along with a revealing commentary track, plus an unadvertised bonus, THE HALLOWEEN PLANET, an unaired children’s TV Special featuring serial SUPERMAN, Kirk Alyn and the cast and crew of ALIEN DEAD, along with a new commentary track. Presented in 1.85 enhanced-widescreen.
