Has she found a ghastly new way to satisfy her lust, or is sexual depravity all in the head?"
Shock: "When a family moves into a home with a shocking secret, their lives become a nightmare of homicidal hallucinations as their young son begins to communicate with the spirits of the dead.

Bloodstained Shadow: "When a young college professor (Lino Capolicchio of THE HOUSE WITH LAUGHING WINDOWS) returns home to visit his Catholic priest brother (Craig Hill of DRACULA VS FRANKENSTEIN), prominent members of the community begin to be stalked and slaughtered by an unknown killer. Can the brothers uncover the identity of this deranged fiend, even while they are being tortured by their own nightmares of an unspeakable childhood trauma?"
Short Night of Glass Dolls: "The corpse of reporter Gregory Moore (Jean Sorel of LIZARD IN A WOMAN’S SKIN) is found in a Prague plaza and brought to the local morgue. But Moore is actually alive, trapped inside his dead body and desperately recalling how the mysterious disappearance of his beautiful girlfriend (Barbara Bach of THE SPY WHO LOVED ME) led to a terrifying conspiracy of depravity. Can a reporter with no visible signs of life solve this perverse puzzle before he meets his ultimate deadline?"
Who Saw Her Die:"The life of a Venice sculptor (former James Bond George Lazenby of ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE) is torn apart when his visiting young daughter (Nicoletta Elmi of DEEP RED and TWITCH OF THE DEATH NERVE) is found murdered.
