Blade Runner (1982), courtesy Warner Bros.

Blade Runner

Blade Runner take place in a world where man has created artificial humans to be used as slaves.  A handful of these “replicants” escape, and a former police officer is brought in to identify and eliminate the fugitives.

Blade Runner is director Ridley Scott’s 1982 follow-up to his 1979 masterpiece Alien.  Harrison Ford plays the hero, Rutger Hauer the villain, and the support cast includes talented actors like Sean Young, Edward James Olmos, Daryl Hannah, and M. Emmet Walsh.  There are several versions of Blade Runner floating around.  This is the Final Cut, and it can be found right here at IMDB Freedive.

The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999), courtesy United Artists.

The Rage: Carrie 2

The Rage: Carrie 2 is, just as the title implies, a 1999 sequel to Brian De Palma’s classic 1976 Stephen King adaptation Carrie.  The story is essentially the same; it’s about an outcast high school girl who discovers that she has the power of telekinesis, and she makes her bullies and tormentors pay.

The Rage: Carrie 2 is a better updating of the Carrie story than the actual 2013 remake.  It was directed by Katt Shea, represents the film debut of Emily Bergl, and even has an appearance by Amy Irving as Sue Snell from the original film.  Check out The Rage: Carrie 2 here at Vudu.

Let the Corpses Tan (2017), courtesy Kino Lorber.

Let the Corpses Tan

Let the Corpses Tan is about a group of thugs that heads to a secluded island resort with a cache of stolen gold to cool their heels for a while.  They find that the retreat is occupied by a writer, his girlfriend, and pair of policemen.  What starts out as a game of cat-and-mouse winds up as a battle for survival for all involved.

This 2017 sleeper is everything anyone could want from a French revisionist western – it’s clever, unpredictable, and violent.  Have a look at Let the Corpses Tan here at Kanopy.

The Cottage (2008), courtesy Screen Gems.

The Cottage

The Cottage is a 2008 thriller about a pair of brothers that kidnaps the daughter of a mob boss and demands a ransom to be delivered by her step-brother, who is also in on the plan.  The ransom package is tracked, and the kidnappers soon find themselves being stalked by a pair of hit men.  But everyone is being stalked by the axe-wielding owner of the cottage at which they are hiding out.

This twist-a-minute black comedy is hilarious and horrifying.  Motion capture legend Andy Serkis stars (in a rare non-Mo-Cap performance) as one of the bungling brothers.  Catch The Cottage here at Crackle.

The Plague Dogs (1982), courtesy Embassy Pictures.

The Plague Dogs

As if director Martin Rosen didn’t ruin your childhood enough with Watership Down, he came back in 1982 with The Plague Dogs.  This animated feature is about two naïve dogs who escape the horrors of a biological testing lab, only to face more horrors in the outside world as they make their desperate run for freedom.

The Plague Dogs is a cartoon, but it’s still both heartbreaking and horrific.  Although most of the violence is directed towards the humans, the dogs are the sympathetic characters.  This one will be hard to watch for the dog lovers out there.  You’ve been warned.  See The Plague Dogs here at TubiTV.
