Crazy as Hell
Ty Adams (Mike Beach) is an outlaw psychiatrist whose nontraditional approach has made him a hero in some circles and a kook in others. He meets his intellectual match in a male patient (Eriq La Salle) claiming to be Satan, and it may just be the doctor, not the patient, who unravels right before the watchful gaze of filmmakers recording Adams's exploits for a documentary. Eriq La Salle also directed the film.

Written and directed by Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins, this surreal fantasy reveals the interior world of writer Felix Bonhoeffer (Hopkins). As he works on his latest mystery screenplay, the characters in his head and those in his real life begin to overlap. Part drama, part comedy and part Hollywood satire, the film boasts a superb cast, including Gena Rowlands, Christian Slater, Michael Clarke Duncan, S. Epatha Merkerson and John Turturro.

Body Snatchers
Young Marty Malone (Gabrielle Anwar) and her family have just moved to a Southern military base so that her father (Terry Kinney) can study a curious environmental issue. Just as she's settling into her new life, Marty learns that an alien attack is imminent and that the creatures are planning to turn humans into "pod people" as they sleep. Marty and her friends must now band together to fight off the aliens.

Morons from Outer Space
When a handful of extremely dim-witted aliens accidentally maroon themselves on Earth, British authorities interrogate them and want them exterminated. But with the help of a shrewd news reporter, the aliens instead become media darlings … and then rock 'n' roll stars! The bizarre rock group soon embarks on a U.S. tour, but how long will they enjoy their new life before their mother ship whisks them back into space?

House of Wax / The Mystery of the Wax Museum

In this spine-tingling film -- one of the first 3D movies ever made -- Vincent Price thrills as Professor Henry Jarrod, the creepy curator of a wax museum who loses his beloved business to a fire and then rebuilds it. This time, though, he doesn't use wax models, but a ghoulish alternative: dead bodies. Also includes The Mystery of the Wax Museum, the 1933 feature that House of Wax was based on.
