4-Disc Collection.


These two thrilling double features from producers Richard and Alex Gordon spin classic tales of hair-raising homicidal mania and intrepid, death-defying exploration. 


The Haunted Strangler:  Nineteenth- century English author James Rankin believes that the wrong man was hanged twenty years earlier for a series of murders, but his investigations lead him to a horrible and, for him, gruesomely inescapable secret.

Corridors Of Blood: In 1840s London, Dr. Thomas Bolton dares to dream the unthinkable: to operate on patients without causing pain. Unfortunately, the road to general anesthesia is blocked by a local killer (Christopher Lee), as well as Bolton's devastating addiction to his own chemical experiments.

First Man Into Space: In this interstellar cautionary tale, brash U.S. Navy test pilot Dan Prescott, hungry for fame, jettisons himself beyond Earth's atmosphere, only to become encrusted with cosmic dust and return a blood-drinking monster.

The Atomic Submarine:  When the nuclear-powered submarine the Tiger Shark sets out to investigate a series of naval disasters near the Arctic Circle, its fearless crew finds itself besieged by electrical storms, an Unidentified Floating Saucer, and lots of hairy tentacles.
