Girl on the Run
A hootchy-kootchy whodunit set at a small seedy carnival where a reporter tries to discover who killed his boss while his girlfriend inexplicably joins the burlesque show! Pure carny-noir. And see if you can spot a young Steve McQueen as one of the carnival’s customers.

The Naked Road
When a woman is left with a corrupt Judge as collateral for a speeding ticket (say what?!), a Good Samaritan bails her out... then holds her prisoner as a future sex slave in this utterly off-kilter, truly weird Weird-Noir.

The Seventh Commandment
A preacher with amnesia and the power to heal (!) quickly plunges into the gutter when his ex-girlfriend-with-a-grudge shows up to blackmail him in this marvelous pulp mix of sex, revenge, and outright obsession! Hallelujah, brother, hallelujah!

Fear No More
Accused of killing a woman on a train, Sharon Carlin runs home to find another corpse there too! Oh yeah, did we mention she’s also a mental patient accused of murdering her boss? It all proves once again that just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean people aren’t out to get you!

Hot shot teen Sonny Martin stops to help the victim of an auto accident but quickly realizes he’s stepped into a murder in progress. Worse, Sonny is not only framed for the murder by the mob but a professional hit man is already hunting him down. Yipes! Hasn’t Sonny heard that no good dead goes unpunished?

Stark Fear
After the abusive husband of cult fave Beverly Garland disappears, you’d think she’d celebrate. Instead, she tries to find the bum and, as expected, things get worse. The original theatrical ads warned: "A New Kind of Suspense as You Follow the Psycho into a New Dimension of Horror!" Damn right.
