    Bruce Campbell (The "Evil Dead" Series, TV's "Burn Notice") stars as Carl, a man who launches a full-scale heist to steal mob money from the prison that just released him. With the help of an old friend (Jeremy Roberts, "The People Under the Stairs"), a driver and a safe-cracker, Carl's attempt to carry out the heist is fraught with incompetence and bad luck. As the clock ticks and the circumstances turn tragic, Carl is forced to make the most important decision of his life. Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's "Rope" and filmed over twenty years before Sam Mendes' "1917", writer/director Josh Becker designed "Running Time" to play out using the "one continuous shot" technique with no computer-assisted trickery. Expertly photographed and edited on film to take place over 70 minutes of real-time, this gritty crime drama was shot entirely on location in the streets of Los Angeles.

    Reel Zombies DVD

    $15.99
    Independent underground filmmakers Mike Masters and David J. Francis (playing themselves) are eager to complete the third film in their ZOMBIE NIGHT film trilogy, a series of rather unsuccessful low-budget, shot-on-video gorefests. The problem, however, is a recent zombie apocalypse has taken over the world since their series began. The dead are rising from their graves and eating the living... for real this time! Masters and Francis embark on the production of their newest masterpiece anyway, only to discover shooting in a post-apocalyptic world offers many unforeseen challenges. Instead of giving up, they decide to capitalize on the cannibalistic catastrophe. No need for latex and fake blood when there's an entire world of flesh eating undead to add realism to their film, and help save money on special effects costs!Touching upon the real-life headaches of low-budget filmmaking, with numerous nods to the zombie film genre, REEL ZOMBIES is a satirical mockumentary feature that dives head-first into self-parody and "an improbable but inspiring lesson in filmcraft proving that passion and dedication can overcome all obstacles--even the ones that want to chomp your brain out!" (Simon Laperrière, Fantasia Film Festival)

    Chambermaids DVD

    $19.99
    Mary Ellen and Sally, two lovely maids at a local hotel, are tired of their boring, dead-end cleaning jobs. To liven up their work, these two horny honeys decide to give the guests a little extra "room service." When some honeymooners and businessmen arrive, the humping and bumping gets even hotter for our heroines as the night goes on. In the morning, will they decide to keep their jobs after all? The amateurish camerawork, microphone shadows, elevator music, terribly recorded sound and "you are there" extreme sex close-ups, will bring you back to the days when adult films were cheap and fast and VERY sleazy. Re-mastered from a scratchy, barely surviving, theatrical print, THE CHAMBERMAIDS is a steamy slice of 70's sex cinema that will have you cleaning up your own room after you watch it!

    Disco Queen Andrea True (Singer of "More, More, More") stars in this 70s adult classic!

    Off the sunny, sandy beaches of Florida, is a houseboat named "Evil Ways" captained by "Andy W.", a man seeking pleasure with one girl after another. Cheated on by his fiancée, Andy sails the ocean in his floating lust-barge, bringing countless new women aboard to enjoy sex, pretzels, lunch meat and Schlitz beer. He is a sadist without a shirt, on mission to bang busty babes in every way possible. This early 70s adult oddity is shrouded in mystery. It's a film that contains only a title card for identification. There are no opening or closing credits, and it is a very compact 64 minutes in length. Unconfirmed rumors state this is directed by the one and only Gerard Damiano, right before hitting the big time with the world-famous blockbuster adult feature, DEEP THROAT, arguably the most well-known adult film of all time.
