The Terrifying Movie Of A World Gone Mad!
Scientists warn that the depletion of the earth’s ozone layer is reaching critical levels, particularly in higher altitudes. How critical? Enough to unleash the vengeful wrath of the entire animal kingdom! No human is safe, particularly a group of nature-loving hikers (including Leslie Nielsen, Naked Gun, Airplane; Richard Jaeckel, Grizzly; Jon Cedar, The Manitou; Lynda Day George, Pieces)) lead by their guide (Christopher George, Grizzly, Mortuary) who are constantly menaced by every conceivable mountain-dwelling creature. Dogs, rats, snakes, hawks, owls, mountain lions and bears are out to send a clear message about chlorofluorocarbon abuse.

Format(s): Blu-ray/DVD Combo
Notable Names: Lance Henriksen, Brion James, James Isaac

From Sean S. Cunningham, producer-director of the original Friday The 13th, comes this electrifying tale of terror!
116 people are dead at the hands of Max Jenke (Brion James, Blade Runner, Crimewave) and his trusty meat cleaver. Now, justice is about to be served as Jenke is sentenced to the electric chair. But from the first high voltage blast, it becomes clear that Max is no ordinary serial killer.
With a blood-chilling laugh from the depths of hell, Max enters our world, transformed into a supernatural force by the high-voltage blast of electricity. Max vows revenge on the cop who captured him. Well-aware of the maniacal killer’s passion to destroy, Detective Lucas McCarthy (Lance Henriksen, Pumpkinhead, Aliens) can only begin to imagine the horror that awaits him and his family.
