Two very unique movies wrap up this year’s first wave of feature announcements. REDLINE is a must-see thrill ride of pulsating Japanese animation, seven years in the making, set in the distant future on a planet where an insanely deadly race takes place. Finally, THE THEATRE BIZARRE is an unmissable new anthology film featuring seven twisted horror tales incorporating the talents of numerous cult horror icons including Tom Savini and Udo Kier.
