Cult Horror Collection (The Funhouse / Phantasm II / The Serpent and the Rainbow / Sssssss)

Actors: Elizabeth Berridge, Shawn Carson, Reggie Bannister
Directors: Tobe Hooper, Don Coscarelli, Wes Craven
The Funhouse
Teenage fun begets terror when two young couples spend the night inside a creepy carnival funhouse, where even the most harmless of objects can take on a distorted and sinister glare. Things really heat up when the kids play witness to a brutal murder at the hands of a disfigured killer who traps them inside with no way out and forces them to relive their waking nightmare. Elizabeth Berridge (Amadeus) co-stars.
Phantasm 2
In this 1980s sequel to a '70s cult classic, Mike (James LeGros) -- the teen hero of the earlier film -- has just been released from a mental hospital and is determined to resume his quest to destroy grave-robbing mortician, the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm). Enlisting the aid of his old pal, Reggie (Reggie Bannister), Mike must destroy the silver sphere-wielding menace before he harms the mysterious girl who's been appearing in Mike's dreams.

The Serpent and the Rainbow
Anthropologist Dennis Alan (Bill Pullman) goes to Haiti in search of a mysterious voodoo powder that turns the living into semi-conscious zombies. But as Alan comes closer to unlocking the mystical drug, natives turn his life into a nightmare. He enlists the help of a doctor (Cathy Tyson), but their smarts are hardly a match for the black magic they're up against. Horror master Wes Craven directs this creepy tale based on a novel by Wade Davis.
When David (Dirk Benedict), the assistant to high-powered scientist and snake expert Dr. Stoner (Strother Martin), is injected by his diabolical boss with a venomous substance that appears to be turning him into a snake, he must race against time to dismantle the cruel experiment. But as the slithery side of him begins to take over and he increasingly looks and thinks like a snake, David becomes almost powerless to foil Dr. Stoner's plans.
