NEW FROM THE WARNER ARCHIVES Disembodied (1957)—"Before she was the title character in Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman, voluptuous Allison Hayes was a whole lotta female in this horror thriller set in the steamy African jungle." Hypnotic Eye (1960)—"A sulfuric acid facial. A lye cocktail. A close encounter with whirring fan blades. A flammable shampoo and a lit gas burner. Something is driving beautiful women into grotesque acts of self-mutilation - and the police investigation leads to a debonair stage hypnotist and his glamorous assistant, who harbors a deep and deadly secret!"
Macabre (1957)—"Why is Dr. Rodney Barrett shoveling dirt in a spooky cemetery at night? He's hunting for the coffin holding his young daughter - his still living young daughter. She's buried alive, an anonymous caller reported. And Barrett has mere hours to find and rescue her." It's directed by William Castle. Todd Killings (1971)—"Everyone likes Skipper (Robert F. Lyons). Guys like the way he fixes them up with girls. Girls like the attention he lavishes on them. And no one would ever think of telling the cops where Skipper's buried his victims. The Todd Killings is the harrowing, fact-based drama of a small-town murderer and the alienated kids who protect him." NEW SONY/COLUMBIA CLASSICS --Read more about this series HERE Arizona Raiders (1965)—"Legendary B-western and serial director (and Quentin Tarantino favorite) William Witney helmed this smart, tense actioner, filmed on location in the Grand Canyon State."

The crazed men are intent on kidnapping one of the passengers, an heiress, and force the tourists into a harrowing detour in the middle of the desert. Lorenzo Lamas is excellent as one of the villains who will stop at nothing to get their way." Doctor's Wives (1970)—"An all-star cast drives this glossy combination of soap opera and murder mystery, heavily drenched in booze and sex. Feeling neglected, one of the title characters decides she's going to sleep with all her husband's friends... but when she's suddenly killed in the act, all of the wives' clandestine activities begin coming to light. Dyan Cannon, Gene Hackman, Richard Crenna, Carroll O'Connor, Rachel Roberts, Janice Rule, Ralph Bellamy, Scott Brady, Richard Anderson and many more round out the cast..." Fire on the Mountain (1981)—"Buddy Ebsen and Ron Howard star in this contemporary western which explores the complex themes of the individual and governmental rights and responsibilities, and the conflicts that can occur when the two are in opposition."

He runs into dethroned King Pavel II (Noel Coward, Blithe Spirit) who offers to sell his bejeweled crown for $1,000,000.

But in fact, Sneed is in business for himself, and even has his own "business manager" (Sorrell Booke) to help him shake down anyone he can for a payoff."
Terror Among Us (1981)—"Ted Shackelford (TV's Knots Landing) plays a rapist on parole who threatens the lives and safety of five women who previously testified against him."
