MOTORCYCLING MADMEN AND VENGEFUL BOUNTY HUNTERS HIGHLIGHT KINO LORBER'S LATEST RELEASES!
I watched NIGHTMARE BEACH A looong time ago, under its alternate title of WELCOME TO SPRING BREAK, but I don't remember much about it. (Doesn't the killer electrocute victims with his motorcycle or some such nonsense? I seem to recall that.)
WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE is a Rutger Hauer action flick that I've overlooked somehow. Watching "The Rut" take on KISS' Gene Simmons (who plays a terrorist in the film) sounds like it'll be a real hoot! Both films have been remastered (in 4K & 2K respectively), and come with audio commentaries and interviews! Continue onward for the full scoop on these discs Vault Dwellers!

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, BLACK CHRISTMAS, EVIL EYE) tries to keep ahead of the curve in this carnage-packed slasher gem from the maestro of macabre.
