Without Warning [1980]

  • Blu-ray
  • PRINCIPAL CAST: Jack Palance, Martin Landau, Ralph Meeker, Cameron Mitchell, Tarah Nutter
  • DIRECTOR: Greydon Clark
  • SYNOPSIS: From Greydon Clark, the legendary cult director of Satan’s Cheerleaders, Angels Brigade, The Return, Wacko, Joysticks, Final Justice and Uninvited, comes the ultimate in extraterrestrial terror—Without Warning. It’s an alien. It preys on human fear. It feeds on human flesh. It comes with flying, bloodsucking jellyfish. And it’s here! A group of teenagers, a grizzled hunter, and a crazy war veteran wage a life-and-death battle against the insidious invader. Be warned, there can be only one survivor. The alien—or Earth. Humanity depends on Jack Palance (Sudden Fear), Martin Landau (The Being), Tarah Nutter (Chilly Scenes of Winter), Christopher S. Nelson (Roller Boogie), Cameron Mitchell (Silent Scream), Neville Brand (Eaten Alive), Sue Ane Langdon (The Evictors), Ralph Meeker (Kiss Me Deadly), Larry Storch (Sweet Sixteen), Lynn Theel (Humanoids from the Deep), Darby Hinton (Hi-Riders) and David Caruso (King of New York) to defeat the evil E.T. (Kevin Peter Hall, the predator in Predator). Ace cinematographer Dean Cundey (The Thing) lensed this classic creepfest and effects whiz Greg Cannom (Bram Stoker’s Dracula) created the freaky fiends from outer space. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Girls Nite Out [1982]

  • Blu-ray – Limited Edition
  • PRINCIPAL CAST: Julia Montgomery, Hal Holbrook, James Carroll, Rutanya Alda
  • DIRECTOR: Robert Deubel
  • SYNOPSIS:
  • A host of familiar genre faces including Hal Holbrook (Creepshow), Rutanya Alda (Amityville II: The Possession), Julia Montgomery (The Kindred) and Lauren-Marie Taylor (Friday the 13th Part 2) rounds out the cast of this gloriously mean-spirited slice from the slasher golden age, Girls Nite Out!
  • The students of DeWitt University are preparing themselves for a night of fun and frolics in the form of an all-night scavenger hunt. Little do they know that they are in fact the ones being hunted… An unhinged assailant, disguised in the college’s goofy bear mascot outfit – and bearing knives for claws, two years before Freddy donned his famous gloves – is stalking the campus hellbent on carving up co-eds.
  • Originally released under the only marginally more appropriate title of The Scaremaker, Girls Nite Out is a decidedly singular slasher flick which comes on like a frenetic cross between Animal House and Friday the 13th– veering from jovial frat antics to jarringly disturbing scenes of the killer shrieking obscenities as he slices up his victims. On this nite out, no one is coming home!
