Amazon Says: Writer-director Brian De Palma "maintains a fever pitch from start to finish" (Leonard Maltin) with this "steamily libidinous and extremely bloody thriller" (Newsweek)! Starring Michael Caine, Angie Dickinson and Nancy Allen (in a Golden Glober-nominated performance), this taut psycho-sexual chiller is a razor-sharp tale of passion, madness and murder that's as "scary as the devil [with] suspense to spare" (Playboy)! Fashionable Manhattan therapist Dr. Robert Elliott (Caine) faces the most terrifying moment of his life, when a psychotic killer begins attacking the women (Dickinson and Allen) in his life- with a straight razor stolen from his office. Desperate to find the murderer before anyone else is hurt, Elliott is soon drawn into a dark and disturbing world of chilling desires. And as the doctor edges closer to the terrible truth, he finds himself lost in a provocative and deadly maze of obsession, deviance and deceit- where the most harmless erotic fantasies...can become the most deadly sexual nightmares! less...

Amazon Says: Based on George A. Romero's classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. In 2012, the deceased have risen from their graves, once again with the instinct to feed on the living. As academics speculate on the scientific cause of this phenomenon, theologians point to the Armageddon foretold in the Book of Revelation. As the cities are overrun and civilization crumbles, a family takes refuge from the undead army in an isolated farmhouse in West Wales. But the greatest threat is already among them as they fight to stay alive. less...
