    Bad Girls Dormitory director Tim Kinkaid takes the helm for this sleazy tale of a grindhouse theater who takes on the entire New York underworld after his employees are massacred by mafia thugs. All Glen Barnes (John Patrick Hayden) wanted was to run a legitimate theater specializing in the most disreputable films around. Unfortunately for Jim, it just doesn't work that way around the Deuce. When Glen refuses to fork over a cut of the action to the local mafia, the stage is set for a bloodbath. What the mafia doesn't realize is that Glen is a man with a particularly violent past, and he's not afraid to resort to his old ways in order to settle the score. But Glen's ex-girlfriend (Michelle Owens) is a cop who rues the thought of seeing him sent up the river for life, and as she tries her hardest to steer him clear of violence, her scheming partner (Jeff Fahey) works overtime to prevent any romantic flames from being rekindled. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

    Includes:Bodyguard Kiba (1993) Bodyguard Kiba 2: Apocalypse of Carnage (1994) Family 2 (2001) Family (2001) Bodyguard Kiba This slam-bang outing from Sonny Chiba is a good example of how Eastern genre fare was packaged and marketed for American release. The Bodyguard was originally known as Bodyguard Kiba (not Karate Kiba as some sources claim) and was based upon a comic book by Ikki Kajiwara. In the film version, Chiba plays a tough bodyguard named Kiba who vows to wipe out the drug trafficking in Japan and offers his services to anyone who can give him information on who runs the drug trade. His offer is taken by a young lady on the run from some criminals and soon discovers she has a secret agenda that will lead him right into his enemy's den. The film was released in the U.S. in 1976 and featured a new prologue sequence produced by American distributor Terry Levene that features a pair of martial artists discussing Sonny Chiba and his whereabouts while showing off their skills. It also changed Kiba's named to Chiba and added bible-quoting opening titles that would later inspire a famous scene in Pulp Fiction. The end result became a favorite at American grindhouses and stands alongside The Streetfighter as one of the best-known Chiba vehicles to Western fans. ~ Donald Guarisco, All Movie Guide Bodyguard Kiba 2: Apocalypse of Carnage When a young karate student attempts to earn some extra cash by serving as bodyguard to a high-profile Hong Kong woman, the initial distraction of her beauty soon gives way to razor sharp focus as a series of attackers descend upon the pair in a tense tale of criminal excess from tireless Ichi the Killer director Takashi Miike. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide Family 2 Takashi Miike's Family, Part 2 continues the tale of the yakuza gangster named Hideshi, who must uncover the identity of the man who killed a powerful crime boss. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide Family Acclaimed director Takashi Miike explores a different kind of family dynamic with this adaptation of Hisao Maki's popular manga following the story of two rival yazuka clans engaged in a bloody battle for underworld supremacy. Notorious hit man Lightning Takeshi has been recruited to take out a powerful mobster, though his contract is compromised when an unidentified woman identifies him before the job is completed. Now forced into hiding along with his family, Takeshi must avoid the wrath of the vengeful rival clan while attempting to come to terms with his growing feelings for the frightened female witness. As the bullets begin to fly, inverterate grudges begin simmering to a boil, and longtime loyalties are put to the ultimate test. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Rick Turner (Robert Alda) is a man haunted by a recurring dream in which a beautiful woman in a flowing white gown dances for him. The dream is robbing Rick of his sleep and driving a wedge between him and his fiancée Donna (Ariadna Welter), so he's startled when one day he passes a shop window and sees a doll that looks just like the woman in his dreams. The owner of the shop, Frank Lamont (Neil Hamilton), informs Rick that the doll was custom-made for a client, and Rick arranges to deliver it to her himself. Rick arrives at the luxurious apartment of Bianca (Linda Christian) to discover she is the very image of the woman in his dream, and she appears to know him already. Rick learns that both Bianca and Frank are members of a mysterious satanic cult that uses the dolls as part of their ceremonies; Rick becomes a regular visitor to their meetings and becomes deeply involved with Bianca after Donna is suddenly bedridden. But does Bianca have a plan for Rick that he doesn't yet suspect? The Devil's Hand was also released under the title Live To Love. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide Terrified In this horror film, college girls head for a notorious ghost town to look into a series of bizarre murders. They are greeted by the gruesome sight of a slain cemetery caretaker. One of the college girls runs for help and while she's gone, horrible things happen to her friends, thanks to the villainous doings of a strangely hooded figure. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide The Madmen of Mandoras Science goes too far as one of the greatest villains of the 20th century makes a last stand in South America in this crackpot thriller. After government scientists develop a new and virulent variety of nerve gas, Professor John Coleman (John Holland) sets out to create an antidote until he mysteriously disappears. Coleman's daughter Kathy (Audrey Caire) and her husband, Phil Day (Walter Stocker), who works in U.S. intelligence, begin to suspect foul play; they're approached by a man named Teo (Carlos Rivas) who is trying to tell them about the professor and a strange place called Mandoras when he's suddenly shot to death. With no other clues to follow, Kathy and Phil travel to the tiny Latin American nation of Mandoras, where Kathy happens to meet her hepcat sister, Suzanne (Dani Lynn), at a nightclub. Suzanne tells Kathy and Phil that she and the professor had been kidnapped, and when they're introduced to Teo's brother Camino (also played by Rivas), they learn of a bizarre plot. According to Camino, scientists in a secret lab on Mandoras have kept the disembodied head of Adolf Hitler (Bill Freed) alive in a jar, and under the orders of "Mr. H" they're engaged in a deadly scheme to take over the world and resurrect the Third Reich. The film Madmen of Mandoras received a brief theatrical release in 1963; later, when it was sold to television, the movie (running a brief 74 minutes) was padded with additional sequences, reported shot by a group of film students, that feature a completely different cast and don't at all resemble the shadowy visual style of the original movie. The strange variant television cut of the film gained a cult following under its title, They Saved Hitler's Brain. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide Blood of Dracula's Castle Dracula carries on his blood-drinking tradition in modern-day California, joined by his bride in a castle into which an unsuspecting couple have just moved.
