Follow the merry madness of Joe R. Lansdale's CHRISTMAS WITH THE DEAD movie from start to finish to sharing it with your family this holiday!

In his quest to fulfill a promise made to his wife, Calvin sets out to right his wrongs and make it the best Christmas ever. If only it weren't June, and the majority of the population, including his wife and daughter, hadn't returned from the dead as flesh-eating snappers in search of hot human lunches, he'd be in pretty good shape. 

Driven by guilt in a race against the apocalyptic clock, Calvin teams up with G.M., a wily ex-garbage man turned undead slayer, as together they attempt to deck the halls during the most magical time of the year. It's Christmas in June. And snappers be damned... The lights and decorations are going up.

Shakespeare's "The Tempest" is transformed in this landmark science-fiction film with groundbreaking special effects. Space men travel to a planet ruled by expatriate Pidgeon who has built a kingdom with his daughter and obedient robot Robby. There the good doctor is plagued by his mad quest for knowledge through his "brain booster" machine, and by Freudian "monsters from the id" as his daughter discovers other men and learns to kiss.

"An ingenious script, excellent special effects and photography, and superior acting, make it an endearing winner." - Geoff Andrew, Time Out

"Imaginative gadgets galore, plus plenty of suspense and thrills, make the production a top offering in the space travel category." - Variety Staff

"MGM's full color, 'Scope production looks amazing, and Robby the Robot steals the show." - Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid

In a ‘close encounter,’  two Earthling scientists (Rex Reason and Faith Domergue) are “recruited” by the inhabitants of the planet Metaluna to aid them in a desperate effort to defend their world from a ruthless, all-out attack by alien invaders, the Zagons.

Well-directed and photographed, “This Island Earth” is “…done with a grandiose solemnity that makes it worthy of the name of space opera. The settings, in particular, are brilliantly imaginative, with superb use of color in conjuring the almost surrealistic landscape of Metaluna, a cratered wasteland concealing the labyrinthine underground city soon to be overrun by a hideous race of insect-like mutants with exposed brains and dead eyes, originally bred by the Metalunians for menial work.”-Tom Milne, “Time Out”

"Pioneering sf drama about space travel is rich in storytelling, atmosphere, visual design and color." - Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television

"Pretty impressive sci-fi for 1955, a near classic." - Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan

Delivering exactly what its title promises, this celebration of stupidity was Jim Carrey's 1994 follow-up to Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Mask. The film pairs the rubber- faced wacky man with Jeff Daniels as the not-so-dynamic duo of Lloyd and Harry, dunderheads who come into the possession of a briefcase containing ransom money that is intended for Mob-connected kidnappers. Lauren Holly costars as the woman who lost the briefcase, and with whom Carrey falls in love (both in real life and as his moronic on-screen character). As Lloyd and Harry make a mad dash to return the briefcase (never aware of its contents), the bumbling buddies attract Mobsters, cops, and trouble galore. 

"A movie that fully lives up to its name, right down to an opening credit sequence rife with intentional misspellings and grammatical errors." - Stephen Holden, New York Times

"The wholeheartedness of this descent into crude and rude humor is so good-natured and precise that it's hard not to partake in the guilty pleasures of the exercise." - Variety Staff
