I don't know that this fits in the crime noir thread or the regular SWV thread, so why not start a new one?

This just popped up on Image's website:


Genres: Horror, Film Noir, Mystery / Suspense, Crime Drama, Something Weird, Special Interest
Cast: Beverly Garland, Ed Dugan, Jacques Bergerac, Jeanne Rainer, Jonathan Kidd, Mala Powers, Richard Coogan, Ronald Long, Rosemary Pettit
Director: Arthur J. Beckhard, Bernard Wiesen, Donn Harling, Irvin Berwick, Joseph Lee, Ned Hockman, William Martin\

Synopsis: GIRL ON THE RUN (1953, B/W, 66 Minutes): A hootchy-kootchy whodunit set at a small seedy carnival where a reporter tries to discover who killed his boss while his girlfriend inexplicably joins the burlesque show! Pure carny-noir.

THE NAKED ROAD (1959, B/W, 74 Minutes): When a woman is left with a corrupt Judge as collateral for a speeding ticket (say what?!), a Good Samaritan bails her out... then holds her prisoner as a future sex slave in this utterly off-kilter, truly weird Weird-Noir.

THE SEVENTH COMMANDMENT (1961, B/W, 82 Minutes): A preacher with amnesia and the power to heal (!) quickly plunges into the gutter when his ex-girlfriend-with-a-grudge shows up to blackmail him in this marvelous pulp mix of sex, revenge, and outright obsession!

FEAR NO MORE (1961, B/W, 78 Minutes): Accused of killing a woman on a train, Sharon Carlin runs home to find another corpse there too!

FALLGUY (1962, B/W, 62 Minutes): Hot shot teen Sonny Martin stops to help the victim of an auto accident but quickly realizes he's stepped into a murder in progress.

STARK FEAR (1962, B/W, 85 Minutes): After the abusive husband of cult fave Beverly Garland disappears, you'd think she'd celebrate. Instead, she tries to find the bum and, as expected, things get worse.

Maybe I'm just snob for SW stuff...because if this was on say one of those labels that put out 50 packs of movies I probably wouldn't bat an eye at it.

Stark Fear was released on a double feature disc from Alpha (who make it look like more of a horror film) but I don't think the others have made it to DVD before.
