818522014708    Orange Man 2016 In 1987, Peter Walkins, a disgruntled door to door orange salesman brutally kills his first victim. Twenty-seven years later, land developer Gerald Johnson is acquiring an orange grove. Just served with divorce papers, he convinces his quirky friends (WILBUR, REGGIE, JIMMY) to join him on a fishing trip to clear his mind and finalize his business transaction. Unbeknownst to him, his soon to be ex-wife DEBORAH and her boyfriend ROGER will be vacationing in the same location. The following day, the group arrives at a quaint and secluded cabin. It’s not long before strange noises in the night start to get the attention of Reggie, Gerald’s wheelchair bound friend and the only one with any common sense. Gerald, thinking it’s nothing, brushes his friends concerns aside. Soon, Reggie’s fears are confirmed when he catches a glimpse of the ‘Orange Man’ while fishing. As the plot thickens, the Orange Man slowly and methodically begins picking them off one by one, utilizing his prosthetic hook hand and a sack of oranges. The Orange Man wants everyone to have a taste. Ben Rollins, Dave Juehring, Glenn Harston, Trena Penson, Susan Wynne Lunning, Michael Banks   


Hitchcock’s Suspicion Remastered on Warner Archive BluRay! 


Suspicion (1941) (BD)(MOD)  1941  Well-to-do wallflower Lina McLaidlaw is in love, perhaps in danger. She suspects that Johnnie Aysgarth, the playboy who swept into her life and married her, is a murderer – and that she is his next intended victim. Alfred Hitchcock’s Suspicion slyly combines romance, mystery and atmospheric flourishes (like an eerie, glowing glass of milk, an effect achieved with a light bulb inside the glass). Joan Fontaine plays vulnerable, nerve-wracked Lina, following her acclaimed work in Hitchcock’s Rebecca with a striking performance that won the Academy Award® and New York Film Critics Award as 1941’s Best Actress. Playing against type, Cary Grant makes Johnnie an imposing charmer, wastrel and cad. But also a killer? Like the glass that may or may not contain poison, Johnnie’s words and deeds may or may not be laced with menace. Cary Grant, Joan Fontaine, Cedric Hardwicke, Nigel Bruce, May Whitty, Isabel Jeans, Heather Angel, Auriol Lee, Reginald Sheffield, Leo G. Carroll
