    Synopsis


    Tooth & Nail
    Trapped in an abandoned hospital by a wandering band of savage cannibals, a small group of survivors intent on repopulating a post-apocalyptic world must fight for their lives and the future of the human race. We've run out of gas, and now the civilized world is a fading memory. Still, there are some who would work to see society rebuilt. One such group has taken refuge in an empty hospital. Upon discovering a young girl who has somehow managed to survive an attack by a nomadic horde of cannibals known as Rovers, the frightened heirs of humanity are forced to defend themselves against a predator that knows precisely what they fear most. Now, as the Rovers methodically emerge from the wasteland to pick off their savory brethren one at a time, the remaining survivors must adapt the same hunting skills as the flesh-eating subhumans who stalk them if they hold out any true hope of saving the legacy of humankind from certain tragedy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Borderland
    Director Zev Berman teams with screenwriter Eric Poppen to explore the occult-based Mexican border-town murder spree that claimed the lives of 60 innocents between January and March of 1989 alone. Graduation is drawing near and the spring breeze is blowing, what better time for three thrill-seeking Texas University students to make a run for the border to celebrate with one last wild weekend of drinking and debauchery? Though all the elements were in place for the perfect weekend getaway, this hard-partying trio is about to find out just how quickly things can take a turn for the worse when you're a stranger in a strange land. Upon running afoul of an ancient blood cult in search of the perfect human sacrifice, the three unsuspecting students are abducted and prepared for the ritualistic execution that will give Mexican drug runners supernatural protection that reaches above and beyond the laws of man. Sean Astin, Rider Strong, and Jake Muxworthy star in an ominous tale of occult bloodletting inspired by actual events. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Mulberry Street
    Fresh off the success of his award-winning senior thesis film, The Underdogs, Tisch School of the Arts graduate Jim Mickle returns with this tale of a mysterious virus that causes mass chaos as it sweeps through a terrified Manhattan neighborhood. It's another sweltering summer day in downtown New York City, and as the residents of 51 Mulberry Street lament their crumbling building, higher rent prices, the rising cost of gas, and the ongoing war in Iraq, the heat continues to climb as tempers begin to flare. The city is changing, but it's an unseen transformation that won't be noticed until it has evolved into an unstoppable force. A rat has attacked a passenger on the city subway, and just downtown another unsuspecting victim is bitten by a ravenous rodent. As darkness falls over the city, emergency response teams struggle to contain what appears to be a rapidly spreading virus that is metamorphosing the helpless denizens into a bizarre new species. The streets are quickly filling with these malevolent new creatures, and as a retired boxer named Clutch awaits the return of his daughter from the battlefields of Iraq, the fearless fighter and seven other evicted tenants from 51 Mulberry Street will be forced to bolt the doors, secure the windows, and take one last stand against the mindless, frenzied masses who will stop at nothing to ensure total assimilation. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    The Deaths of Ian Stone
    Propelled into the path of an oncoming train by a nightmarish creature that stalks the darkness, an ordinary American finds himself forced to die a new death every day until he can solve the mystery of his own life in this installment of the 2007 After Dark Horrorfest. As the speeding lights rushed toward him, Ian Stone thought he was experiencing his last moments. Having inexplicably survived the frightening incident, Ian is born into a new existence that is completely different despite the fact that he still feels strangely familiar. Soon enough, Ian is thrown into the clutches of death yet again. Upon realizing that he is being stalked by a strange supernatural presence and that he will die a new death every day until he unlocks the lingering secrets of his own life, Ian Stone attempts to thwart death long enough to uncover the hidden truth about his own identity. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Unearthed
    When an unexplained trucking accident knocks out phone lines in the town of Pueblo, NM, and blocks the only route out of town, an investigation into the cause of the crash reveals an otherworldly creature that could pose a threat to the entire human race. Awakening from her usual hangover to investigate a herd of cattle that has been mutilated almost beyond recognition, Pueblo sheriff Annie is summoned to the scene of a mysterious semi accident. Though the only clue as to the identity to the driver is a severed limb, Sheriff Annie does discover a bizarre, crab-like leg stuck in the grill of the scorched tanker. Meanwhile, on another stretch of the same highway, vacationing sisters Ally and Caya stop to pick up a ruggedly handsome ranch hand named Charlie, whose car has stalled out miles away from a gas station or repair shop. Upon arriving at the only gas station in Pueblo, the trio is greeted by Nodin and her grandfather and informed that not only are the pumps dry, but that the only route out of town is blocked by the accident as well. Also trapped at the station is traveling salesman Frank, who specializes in synthetic urine. As night draws near Sheriff Annie arrives at the gas station to share her strange discovery with botany specialist Nodin, who can find no earthly explanation for the unidentified appendage. Later, when Ally decides to pitch in by taking out the trash, she is savagely mauled by a vicious creature that has just torn the patrons of a local bar limb from limb. As the night drags on and the bloodbath continues, the frightened group discovers that their only hope for survival may the very same Native American girl responsible to unleashing the relentless beast in the first place. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Lake Dead
    When three sisters venture deep into the backwoods to visit the home recently left to them by their long lost grandfather, they are stalked by a psychotic family of murderous rednecks who have taken up residence in the home and who have no plans of giving it up. Their grandfather was recently killed in the most gruesome manner imaginable, and the three sisters are stunned to learn that they are the sole heirs to his sprawling estate. After rounding up a group of close friends, the girls set out for the hills in order to explore the house and have a little fun. The good times come to an abrupt end, however, when a family of inbred maniacs emerges with a lethal grudge and a lingering thirst for blood. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Crazy Eights
    Frank Whaley, Traci Lords, Gabrielle Anwar, and Dina Meyer star in director James Koya Jones' tale of six childhood friends who band together to confront a lingering secret from the past. A man has died, and now the six friends who knew him best have returned home to pay their final respects. Later, while settling their late friend's estate issues, the group discovers a map leading them to a long-forgotten time capsule that they had all buried many years ago. Upon unearthing the capsule, the six friends find themselves forced to confront a lingering childhood trauma as they begin the painful journey into their crumbling childhood home. Once there, a terrible secret concerning a mysterious dead girl emerges, and the fate of the entire group is forever sealed. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Nightmare Man
    A murderous figure in a demonic mask stalks a woman from her dreams before materializing in the real world to do some bloody damage in director Rolfe Kanefsky's nocturnal tale of night terror. Unsuccessful despite multiple attempts to conceive, Ellen (Blythe Metz) and her husband, Bill (Luciano Szafir), order a mask said to represent the God of Fertility. Unfortunately, their hope for a child is soon snuffed out when a demonic figure sporting the very same mask begins to pursue Ellen in her dreams. Increasingly disturbed by his wife's hysterical paranoia, Bill secures a room for his troubled wife at a nearby mental health facility. When Ellen and Bill's car breaks down in the woods en route to the hospital and the menacing figure from Ellen's nightmares emerges from the darkened trees, a retreat to a nearby cabin where Mia (Tiffany Shepis) is hosting a party with a collection of close friends sets the stage for a blood-soaked murder rampage that may or may not be the doing of a supernaturally charged killer. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Buy the whole set!

      If you're a horror movie fan, you'll love these films. My wife and I are huge movie collectors and horror movie lovers. We actually have all three sets, including two extras. They say '8 films to die for' but in the first two sets there's actually 9. So, if you buy this set, also look for Frontier(s), (and Captivity, which was part of the first set.) Now, my over all rating was five stars for the set as a whole, which I recommend unless they're individually on sale for under $14.99. I've seen all of them and thought most of them were great, with the exception of two I personally didn't like. (But some one else might.) Some of them are low budget films, but a lot of really good horror movies are low budget films. I've written reviews about individual movies from all three sets including a review about the third set as a whole, if you want to check those out. (Just click 'read my reviews'.) I did this because some people just buy a couple at a time, and I respect that. I hope this and my other reviews are useful.

      Titles in this 8 pack: Boarderland Crazy Eights Death Of Ian Stone Lake Dead Mulberry Street Nightmare Man Tooth & Nail Unearthed Great set of not quite classics. Keep in mind they are low budget but some of the best horror movies are low budget. I believe this series was billed as "to controversial for theatres" so some material may be shocking.
