JOHN CARPENTER PRESENTS BODY BAGS Collector’s Edition Blu-ray™+ DVD Combo Pack
Two Masters of Horror – John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) and Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Lifeforce) – come together to create a chilling anthology of terror.
Young college student Anne (Alex Datcher) working the late shift at “The Gas Station” while a killer is on the loose. Then, middle-aged business man Richard Coberts (Stacy Keach) can’t stand the thought of losing his “Hair” and he’ll do anything to keep it. And finally, Brent Matthews
(Mark Hamill), a baseball player submits to an “Eye” transplant after he loses an eye in a car accident. After going through the revolutionary eye surgery, he ends up getting more than just his eye sight back.
ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 Collector’s Edition Blu-ray™
Isolated and cut off from the city inside a soon-to-be-closed L.A. police station, a group of police officers and convicts must join forces to defend themselves against the gang called Street Thunder, who have taken a blood oath to kill someone trapped inside the precinct.
From John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing and Prince Of Darkness), Assault On Precinct 13 combines the elements of a classic western and a modern thriller to create a riveting cult classic.
