From the director of PHANTASM and BUBBA HO-TEP comes this fresh sci-fi horror-comedy. It's a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John (Rob Mayes) and David (Chase Williamson), a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can't. Director: Don Coscarelli.

TATER CITY is a daring new splatter sci-fi film exploding with insane technology, manga style, crazy action, adrenaline, savage violence, and blood! It's the MANBORG of splatter films. In the futuristic Taeter City, society is crime-free thanks to an authoritarian government that uses experimental radio waves to target murders and serial killers, forcing them to commit suicide before they have a chance to kill others. In a savage twist, their corpses are then collected and turned into the meat that the mega fast food corporations use to feed the masses. However, the system is having unexpected side effects. The radio waves are now making some criminals into mutants who are immune to brain washing. Can this cannibalistic society survive a mutant rebellion? Director: Giulio De Santi
