Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas stars with John Schneider (The Dukes of Hazzard) in the action-packed Eddie Macon's Run. Time is running out for Eddie Macon (Schneider). He's trapped in a Texas jail on trumped-up charges. He'll do anything to make it back to his wife and child, but if he's caught, he'll be back in the pen for life. Carl Marzack (Douglas) is an aging cop who must prove he can still get his man - and his man is Eddie Macon. The hunt is on in this exciting thrill ride that climaxes in an edge-of-your seat chase through the streets of Texas.

A Run Through '91 “Black Demons” DVD Review (Shriek Show)
The Umberto Lenzi Collection
Finally, the seldom seen 1991 zombie film from Umberto Lenzi arrives stateside, uncut, digitally re-mastered, and in English for the very first time. The Black magic rites and powers of Voodoo and the Macumba are used to reanimate the corpses of zombified, revenge-seeking, black slaves. Acting out of retribution, the zombies tear, rip and bite anyone in their path of vengeance. Containing plenty of gore, and an early 1980's-style, this is one not to be missed.

A Run Through '91 “The Unborn” Blu-Ray Review (Scream Factory)
She was desperate to have a child ... until she was impregnated with THE UNBORN.
A young wife (Brooke Adams, Invasion Of The Body Snatchers) suspects that a mysterious doctor (James Karen, The Return Of The Living Dead, Poltergeist) has inseminated her with mutated sperm in an attempt to create a super-human fetus. Unfortunately, there are extreme side-effects. More frightening than Rosemary's Baby, this chiller features early film roles in the careers of Lisa Kudrow and Kathy Griffin.
Why We Love It
“It’s stylish and a little smarter than you might expect but it also goes for the gusto in the ways a horror fan wants… The new 2K scan of this title does well by the film’s moody, soft-lit look and the lossless 2.0 stereo track gets the job done nicely.” – Don Guarisco, Schlockmania!
“I’d watch this over Rosemary’s Baby anytime! It’s much more entertaining & the replay value is definitely better here. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!...You can throw out that old DVD because this Blu-ray release is best that this has ever looked on home video & it’s definitely an upgrade compared to any previous release.” – Wayne Wright, Horror Headquarters

A Run Through '91 “Bloodsucking Pharaohs in Pittsburg” Blu-Ray Review (88 Films)
In the same satirical spirit as HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS (1988) or STUDENT BODIES (1981), comes 1991's esoterically entertaining splatter send-up BLOODSUCKING PHARAOHS IN PITTSBURGH.
Originally entitled PICKING UP THE PIECES, and featuring special effects from the legendary Tom Savini (MANIAC/ DAY OF THE DEAD), this first class mix of gore and guffaws makes its worldwide BluRay debut from 88 Films.
Proving that a madwoman can be far more threatening than a madman, BLOODSUCKING PHARAOHS IN PITTSBURGH introduces us to a weapon-wielding femme-fatale who is dedicated to lopping off limbs and chalking up a high body count in the name of an ancient religious cult. What results is a plethora of slice and dice silliness and one of the most deranged, but darkly humoured, hack 'em ups ever unleashed. Starring Veronica Hart, the erstwhile adult movie legend from such late night masterworks as AMANDA BY NIGHT (1981), as a crazy killer with a shapely shape, and paying homage to everything from BLOOD FEAST (1963) to THE TOOLBOX MURDERS (1978), BLOODSUCKING PHARAOHS IN PITTSBURGH proves once and for all that the female of the species is far deadlier than the male!

A Run Through '91 “Hauntedween” DVD Review
HauntedWeen is a horror/comedy, was made in Bowling Green, KY. We filmed at WKU, the OLD Sigma Alpha Epsilon house, and a downtown warehouse for the interior scenes. We also used an old farmhouse in Richpond, KY for the exterior scenes. This was “The Burber House”.
HauntedWeen took 23 days to shoot the principal photography and then another 2 years to complete. It was shot on 16mm film and transferred directly to video. We sold a little over 2,000 copies with a money back guarantee. No one sent a copy back to us. HauntedWeen was a independent film project of passion. After graduating with a Film/TV production degree from WKU, I wanted to show Hollywood that we could make movies in Kentucky. It became my quest. More than 200 people worked on the film at different times. Without the help of the local community, it would have been impossible to make the movie.
There were many local companies that helped us make our film, Houchens markets, Dominos Pizza, Subway, RC cola, Dixie Cream Donuts, The Capitol Arts Theatre, Wilbur Sprouse, (107.1 The Gator), Barry Williams, WBKO, and too many news outlets to name… are just a few of the local supporters and folks that helped.
This DVD release will give everyone who worked on the film and lifelong memory. If you knew someone that was in the movie or even heard about it, you can buy the DVD and get a better understanding of how we accomplished the goal of delivering the film. The DVD includes The Movie, Director/Producer Commentary, a photo album, the original trailer, the unseen HauntedWeen music video, and the never before seen, The Making of HauntedWeen. The Making of HauntedWeen, is a 45 minute documentary. It’s a behind the scenes look at the film’s secrets, the personalities, and the decision making process of how we filmed particular shots.
So BUY this movie with over 4 hours of quality entertainment… it’s entertainment for sure.
