In this taut psychological drama, Nick Mancuso plays Holden Downs, an unscrupulous real estate developer.

Joey decides to get even by stealing Downs' luxurious sports car with the help of his brother Michael (Andrew Divoff). However, Downs is not willing to give up his car without a fight; he's fitted the vehicle with a variety of security devices and unusual weapons that make it a virtual torture chamber for anyone who sets foot in it without Downs' permission, and the car thieves quickly discover that they've become victims of the man they set out to rob. Captured was the directorial debut for actor Peter Liapis.

Brave New World(1980)

In a meticulously orchestrated future, pregnancy is forbidden, and citizens are encouraged to have loveless sex and take mind-altering narcotics. While most people are happy to retain this established order, including Thomas Grambell (Keir Dullea), a supervisor of human "hatcheries," resistance is growing, as evinced by quirky malcontent Bernard Marx (Bud Cort) and other rebels. When a native named John Savage (Kristoffer Tabori) arrives, his presence further upends conventional thinking.

Genesis II (1973)

In 1979, NASA scientist Dylan Hunt (Alex Cord) is working on "Project Ganymede", a suspended animation system for astronauts on long-duration spaceflights. As chief of the project he volunteers for the first multi-day test. He places himself in chemically induced hibernation deep inside Carlsbad Caverns; while there, his lab is buried in an earthquake. The monitoring equipment is damaged and fails to awake him at the intended end of the test. He awakens instead in 2133, emerging into a chaotic post-apocalyptic world. An event called "The Great Conflict" (a third and final World War) destroyed the civilization of Hunt's time. Various new civilizations have emerged in a struggle for control of available resources. Those with the greatest military might and the will to use it have the greatest advantage.

Hunt is accidentally found and rescued by an organization calling themselves "PAX" (the Latin word for "peace"). PAX members are the descendants of the NASA personnel who worked and lived at the Carlsbad Installation in Dylan's time. They are explorers and scientists who preserve what little information and technology survive from before the Conflict, and who seek to learn and acquire more in an effort to build a new civilization. Members of PAX find Hunt still sealed in the hibernation chamber. They revive him, and are thrilled to meet a survivor from before the Conflict.

Cloned (1997)

The sci-fi telemovie Cloned, starring Elizabeth Perkins, Bradley Whitford and Alan Rosenberg, originally debuted on NBC, on Friday, September 26, 1997 (a timely premiere, given the birth of Dolly the sheep two months earlier) , and now arrives on home video in this release. Set in the near future, the picture revolves around geneticist Richard Kozak (Rosenberg), who clones numerous little boys for the benefit of infertile parents, but culls all of the replicants from the same set of DNA, and allows each mom and dad to believe that their little one is an exclusive. Perkins and Whitford play Skye and Rick Weston, a couple whose child was the offshoot of Kozak's scheme, but died years earlier in a boating accident. Skye stumbles onto a child who is the spitting image of her dead son, and from there, uncovers a vast conspiracy, masterminded by Kozak, that not only involves mass DNA cloning, but growing human organs in jars. Doug Barr directs, from a teleplay by Carmen Culver and David Taylor and a story by Perri Klass.

Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965)

Five men enter a train carriage in London bound for Bradley, and are joined by a sixth, the mysterious Doctor Schreck (Peter Cushing) whose name, he mentions, is German for "terror". During the journey, the doctor opens his pack of Tarot cards (which he calls his "House of Horrors") and proceeds to reveal the destinies of each of the travellers. This provides the framework to tell five horror stories.

Werewolf

Architect Jim Dawson (Neil McCallum) returns to his old family home on a Scottish isle to make renovations for the new owner, Mrs. Biddulph (Ursula Howells). Biddulph explains she bought the secluded house to help her recover from the death of her husband.

Dawson finds the coffin of Count Cosmo Valdemar behind a fake wall in the cellar. Valdemar, the original owner of the house, was killed in a conflict with the Dawson family centuries ago. Local legend states that Valdemar would reclaim his former home and take revenge on the current owner. Dawson discovers that Valdemar is rising at night as a werewolf, and has already killed a housemaid (Katy Wild).

Believing Mrs. Biddulph to be in danger, he makes silver bullets out of an ancestral cross that protected the house against Valdemar's spirit. When the wolf appears, Dawson is baffled that the bullets don't kill it. Mrs. Biddulph explains that she has replaced the silver bullets with ordinary ones. She reveals to Dawson that the truth of the legend is that Valdemar will take revenge on the last descendant of the Dawson clan, and placing a Dawson corpse in Valdemar's coffin will restore Valdemar to life in human form. It was all a trap: Biddulph is Valdemar's wife, who has returned from the grave after 200 years.

Creeping Vine

Bill Rogers (Alan Freeman) and his wife and daughter (Ann Bell and Sarah Nicholls) return from vacation to discover a fast-growing vine in the garden. When the plant seems to respond violently to attempts to cut it down, Rogers goes to the Ministry of Defence, where he gets advice from a couple of scientists (played by Bernard Lee and Jeremy Kemp). The plant becomes intelligent, and harbours homicidal tendencies towards any threats to its existence.

Voodoo

Biff Bailey (Roy Castle) is a jazz musician who accepts a gig in the West Indies, and foolishly steals a tune from a local voodoo ceremony. When he tries to use the tune as a melody in a jazz composition back in London, there are dire consequences. Running from an unknown force, Castle's character stumbles against a wall where there is a garish poster for "Dr Terror's House of Horrors". This story is probably[weasel words] based on the short story "Papa Benjamin" by Cornell Woolrich, which was also adapted by the television series Thriller and the radio series Suspense

Disembodied Hand

Pompous art critic Franklyn Marsh (Christopher Lee) seems more concerned with his own devastating wit than art itself. Painter Eric Landor (Michael Gough) bears the brunt of one of Marsh's tirades, but gets even by humiliating the critic publicly. When Landor takes it too far, Marsh responds by driving over him with his car, causing Landor to lose one of his hands. Unable to paint any more, Landor commits suicide. Marsh is then tormented by the disembodied hand, which seems immune to fire as well as attempts to contain it, leading to Marsh's eventual blindness in a car accident of his own.

Vampire

Dr Bob Carroll (Donald Sutherland) returns to his home in the United States with his new French bride, Nicolle (Jennifer Jayne). Soon there is evidence that a vampire is on the loose, and Carroll seeks the aid of his colleague, Dr Blake (Max Adrian). They find that Nicolle is the vampire. Following Blake's advice, Carroll kills Nicolle. When the police come to arrest Carroll for his wife's murder, Blake denies giving any such advice. As the police take Carroll away, Blake says to himself that the city isn't big enough for two doctors or two vampires, and he turns into a bat.

Epilogue

The frame story ends with a twist. Dr. Schreck informs the men that the only way they can avoid these horrible destinies is by dying first. When the train stops, the men find out that they are already dead, having perished in a train wreck while their fortunes were being told. Schreck is revealed to be Death himself.

After an unsuccessful attempt at suicide, Lionheart is rescued by a group of drug-addicted bums.
