An unofficial sequel to his earlier Class of 1984, director Mark Lester's Class of 1999 stars Malcolm McDowell as the principal of a violence riddled high school who hires scientist Stacy Keach to develop a staff of cyborg teachers.

Special features include a commentary by Lester; interviews with Lester, co-producer Eugene Mazzola, screenwriter C. Courtney Joyner, director of photography Mark Irwin, and special effects creators Eric Allard and Rick Stratton.

The time is the future, and youth gang violence is so high that the areas around some schools have become “free fire zones” into which not even the police will venture. When Miles Langford (Malcolm McDowell), the principal of Kennedy High School, decides to take his school back from the gangs, robotics specialist Dr. Robert Forrest (Stacy Keach) provides “tactical education units”. Human-like androids have been programmed to teach and are supplied with weapons to handle discipline problems. These kids will get a lesson in staying alive!

Actor Bob Balaban made his feature directorial debut with 1989's Parents, which followed the late '80s trend set by Blue Velvet and River's Edge in exploring the dark side of suburban America. Randy Quaid and Mary Beth Hurt are the eponymous parents of a young boy who begins to question the origin of the mysterious meat they serve him for dinner.

Special features include a commentary with Balaban and producer Bonnie Palef; isolated score selections and audio interview with composer Jonathan Elias; and interviews with cast and crew members.

Meet the Laemles. Dad’s got a great job. Mom has all the modern conveniences a happy homemaker could ask for. And ten-year-old Michael has neat new friends and two parents who kill him with kindness. They’re the all-American family… or are they? Michael can’t figure out why his family serves leftovers every night. “Leftovers? Well, what were they before they were leftovers?” questions young Michael. “Leftovers-to-be,” smiles dad. Dad’s bringing home the bacon… and a whole lot more. Michael’s parents are getting away with murder – making home where the horror is!

1988's The Unholy stars Ben Cross as a priest assigned to a New Orleans parish where evil literally reigns.

Special features include a commentary with director Camilo Vila; isolated score selections and audio interview with composer Roger Bellon; the original ending, featuring optional audio commentary with producer Mathew Hayden; and interviews with cast and crew.

In New Orleans, a city with a dark underside of black magic and satanic worship, two priests have been brutally murdered at St. Agnes Church. Now The Unholy reigns, only to be challenged by the purest of mortal souls. Father Michael (Ben Cross), believed to be spiritually blessed, is appointed to the ungodly parish. Is he really the “chosen one”, strong enough to fight such ravishing temptation, such raw evil? Or is he simply the third to die? Some say Father Michael hasn’t got a prayer.
