Two Masters of Horror John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) and Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Lifeforce) come together to create a chilling anthology of terror. Alex Datcher (Passenger 57) stars as a woman working the late shift at The Gas Station while a killer is on the loose. Then, Stacy Keach (Road Games) canâ€™t stand the thought of losing his Hair and heâ€™ll do anything to keep it. And finally, Mark Hamill (Star Wars) portrays a baseball player that submits to an Eye transplant after he loses an eye in a car accident. Featuring guest appearances by Deborah Harry, Sheena Easton, Twiggy, David Naughton (An American Werewolf In London), John Agar (Tarantula), David Warner (Time After Time) and cameos by Wes Craven, Tobe Hooper and Roger Corman, Body Bags delivers a fright-filled night of horror.
Out of the chaos, darkness, and violence of the Middle Ages, one family seized control of England, holding on to power and ruthlessly crushing all competition for more than 300 years. Through dramatic reenactments, historical documents, and masterful storytelling, Britain's Bloodiest Dynasty: The Plantagenets tells a tale more shocking and brutal than anything found in fiction. Presented by award-winning journalist and acclaimed historian Dan Jones, The Plantagenets is history like you've never seen it before: one with overbearing fathers and weak sons, treacherous allies and adulterous wives, warring cousins and best friends turned mortal enemies. This four-part series shows how a great dynasty was driven by the rawest of emotions-greed, envy, love, hate-and the relentless pursuit of power. These kings murdered, betrayed, and tyrannized their way to spectacular success, forging England as a nation and dragging it, for better or for worse, into the modern world.BONUS FEATURES include a 12-page viewer's guide with a map of the Plantagenet realm; a timeline; and articles on the time before and after the Plantagenets, Richard the Lion-heart, and how Magna Carta marked the beginning of representative democracy; and profiles of Plantagenet queensTo learn more, visit athenalearning.com
