carnivalofsouls

A church organist inexplicably survives a car wreck, and finds herself haunted by visions of ghouls who seem to be following her.

 

the fly

The fly: Experimental scientist Andre Delambre attempts to transfer matter through space, using himself as the test subject. But things go horrifically wrong when a common housefly buzzes into the machine, resulting in two grotesque man-fly hybrids. Now, with the head of a fly and a wing in place of one of his arms, Andre desperately hopes that he, his wife Helene and his brother Francois can capture the other mutant – the human-headed, one-armed fly – in hopes of reversing the experiment.

 

thebirds

Melanie Daniels is a beautiful blonde who arrives in Bodega Bay in pursuit of the handsome and eligible Mitch Brenner. But love is not the only thing in the air when thousands of birds descend upon the town, attacking and terrorizing its residents. Soon Melanie and Mitch are fighting for their lives against a deadly, unexplainable force in this spine-tingling portrait of nature at its most powerful and ruthless.

 

TheNightVisitor

Salem escapes from a maximum security insane asylum. Dressed only in shorts and shoes, he braves the frozen Scandinavian countryside to seek revenge against his own family, who had him committed two years earlier for a brutal ax murder that he may not have done.

 

kingdomofshadows

A documentary that explores the evolution of the horror film in world cinema. More than fifty films are surveyed, including many early silent films.

 

Mud Creek, Texas is about to get all shook up. When mysterious deaths plague the Shady Rest retirement home, it's up to "Elvis", its most sequined senior citizen and a black curmudgeon-in-chief, "JFK", to defeat a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy with a penchant for sucking the souls from the barely living.
