A devastating double feature that was twenty-four years in the making! In the late 1980s, direct-to-video trash-action was as common as shoulder pads and skinny ties. But even in this neon-soaked jungle, SAMURAI COP was a true anomaly. Living legend Joe Bob Briggs said it best: “a recently unearthed, soon-to-be-classic kung-fu action-comedy skin flick with gratuitous gore elements.” That’s a great start, but there’s so much more. Ex-Sylvester Stallone bodyguard Matt Hannon stars Joe Marshall, a tank of a man who will do literally whatever it takes to bring down the late Robert Z’Dar and the sadistic Katana gang — even if it means destroying dozens of innocent lives in the process. SAMURAI COP is one of the most rampaging crowd-pleasers to ever be gifted to the universe. And now, the annihilation continues with SAMURAI COP 2: DEADLY VENGEANCE!!

In 1979, Iranian filmmaker John S. Rad moved to the U.S. to shoot his dream project, a rampaging gutter epic of crime, revenge, cop sex and raw power. Just 26 years later, he completed an American action film masterpiece that the world is still barely ready for today: DANGEROUS MEN.
After Mina witnesses her fiancé’s brutal murder by beach thugs, she sets out on a venomous spree to eradicate all human trash from Los Angeles. Armed with a knife, a gun, and an undying rage, she murders her way through the masculine half of the city’s populace. A renegade cop is hot on her heels, a trail that also leads him to the subhuman criminal overlord known as Black Pepper.
It’s a pulse-pounding, heart-stopping, brain-devouring onslaught of ’80s thunder, ’90s lightning, and pure filmmaking daredevilry from another time and/or dimension. Blades flash, blood flows, bullets fly and synthesizers blare as the morgue overflows with the corpses of DANGEROUS MEN.

There are those movies that are so iconic, so grand and so beautiful that spoiling anything about it would be a crime to humanity. SOYLENT GREEN is one of those movies. A film over 40 years old and I still hesitate to proclaim one of the greatest reveals ever. This is as secretive as Rosebud’s true meaning, as mysterious as Vader’s paternity and as menacing as Kaiser Solze identity. What is the secret of Soylent Green?
In 2022 the world is permanently overcrowded and polluted. The masses live in poverty and squalor while the elite hide away their electricity, luxurious amenities and food. The unlucky ones only means of sustenance is a rationed high energy wafer dubbed Soylent Green by it’s maker, The Soylent Corporation. Something is amiss to detective Frank Thorn (Charlton Heston) and he needs to know the secret.
Don’t tell a soul. 40 years and counting and we can still keep this a secret to the very last scene.

VHS-only insanity projected from VHS for only $1!
Over the course of three decades, Mexican wrestling sensation El Santo starred in fifty-bazillion movies. But only one of those movies finds Santo and his pal, Blue Demon, caught in a bloodthirsty death-battle with Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, The Creature From The Black Lagoon, The Vampire Woman, a little person hunchback named Waldo, and an unidentified creature who looks like a tree with cauliflower for a head. And this is it!! SANTO AND BLUE DEMON VS. THE MONSTERS is non-stop sensory overload. It falls somewhere between a WWF Royal Rumble and a surf-goth dance party in a graveyard at midnight. Frankenstein’s monster drives a Mercedes! The Creature From The Black Lagoon is also a cyclops! Santo eats dinner, reads a newspaper, and makes out with people — all with his mask on! If life gets better than this, we don’t want to know about it. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
