CAT PEOPLE COLLECTOR’S EDITION BLU-RAY
A remake of the 1942 Jacques Tourneur horror/noir classic, CAT PEOPLE stars Nastassja Kinski as Irena, a beautiful young woman who discovers love for the first time only to find that the experience brings tragic consequences. The tremendous passion of this girl’s first romantic love is so strong, however, it bypasses the chaos around her – including the extraordinary demands of her brother (Malcolm McDowell) – as it pushes her on to her own bizarre destiny. Written and Directed by Paul Schrader , this erotic fantasy about the passion and terror surrounding this first love also stars John Heard, Annette O’Toole, Ruby Dee and Lynn Lowry.

DIE MONSTER DIEDIE MONSTER DIE BLU-RAY
Boris Karloff, the greatest horror star of all time, takes center stage in this “menagerie of horrors” (Motion Picture Daily) that “spins out shock after shock” (Boxoffice).

An English scientist entertains a young American visitor, serving up tea, terror and a beautiful daughter – who is soon torn between her father’s evil ways and her need to protect the man she loves from a diabolical end.
