PUPPET PRINCESS (Karakuri no Kimi)
In a violent age of civil war and warlords, Yasaburo is a ninja without a mission and the only survivor of his clan. He meets Rangiku, a young girl of noble descent whose family was slaughtered by the henchmen of General Karimata. Now she fights back with the assistance of her father’s puppet warriors, the very creations Karimata tried to steal!
Together with Yasaburo, the Princess and her army of pulverizing puppets cut a bloody path through 16th Century Japan and drench the dusty streets in blood! When the Puppet Princess commands her puppets to dance, human bodies fall like broken toys!
HAIKADER: HYPER DESTROYER EDITION
The darkest force of destruction is now the only hope for salvation! In the far future, peace and violence walk hand in hand in Jesus Town, a false utopia ruled by the iron fist of Gurjev and his cyborg enforcer Michael. While the citizens long for a savior to rescue them from their veil of tyranny, a small band of rebels search for a new weapon to aid in their fight against Gurjev. Hidden away from civilization, an ominous force begins to stir awake and may be the answer to everyone’s prayers. After a long imprisonment, Hakaider the destroyer, is enlisted in the rebel fight. Suddenly aware of the new menace, Gurjev seeks to crush the rebels and destroy Hakaider once and for all! A classic from creator Keita Amemiya! Contains both the theatrical version and the extended director’s cut. Japanese language with English subtitles. (77 mins.)
SHRIEK PACK: FLESH FOR THE BEAST & DEAD RIOT (DOUBLE FEATURE)
FLESH FOR THE BEAST tells the dark tale of a notorious occultist who conjures up a brothel full of ravenous female demons from hell! A century later, a team of ghost hunters investigate the haunted manor for evidence of the restless spirits. DEAD RIOT stars horror icon Tony Todd (Clive Barker’s CANDYMAN) as Shadow, an executed and resurrected serial killer who invades a women’s prison with his insatiable zombie army. Shadow seeks the inmate known only as Solitaire who somehow senses her impending doom and prepares for a supernatural martial arts showdown of epic proportions! A unique fusion of Asian action, The Walking Dead and women-in-prison antics! (179 mins on 2 DVDs)
The Devil Always Gets his Due! It’s Halloween eve and a young couple are desperate for something fun to do. They find a weird video store just as it’s about to close and beg the store owner to rent them the scariest movie in the store! The creepy owner agrees on one strict condition- that the DVD must be returned by midnight or they must pay the late fee! Halloween turns out to be a real nightmare as the couple lose track of time and rush to return the video! But it’s too late and they learn the hard way that the penalty must be paid in blood! (90 mins)
