Anyone else besides me who is a fan of PM Entertainment?
For those who don't know, PM was a production company formed by Richard Pepin and Joseph Merhi (and another guy who I can't remember the name of, but that's not important). Together they produced and/or directed a lot of great low budget movies from they late 80ies until around the year 2000. The early efforts all had the feel and look of a porno movie, and I'd say they had their peak in the mid 90ies, releasing movies such as Dark Breed (1996) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116026/), Pure Danger (1996) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117406/), The Sweeper (1996) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114590/), Riot (1996) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117481/), The Silencers (1996) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117651/), Bigfoot: The Unforgettable Encounter (1994) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109271/), Last Man Standing (1995) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116831/), Firepower (1993) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106915/), Zero Tolerance (1994) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111825/), Steel Frontier (1995) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114537/), The Art of Dying (1991) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101369/) and Inferno aka Desert Heat (1999) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0139151/). They also made the TV series L.A. Heat (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115237/).

Some of the stars and directors (among other things) they worked with during the years (I think all mentioned was connected with them for more than one feature): C. Thomas Howell, Jeff Fahey, Gary Daniels, Jack Scalia, Clint Howard, Richard Moll, Anna Nicole Smith, Jeff Wincott, Corey Feldman, Jeff Conaway, Robert Patrick, Corey Michael Eubanks, Michael Ironside, Cynthia Rothrock, Charles T. Kanganis, Traci Lords, Lorenzo Lamas, Don 'The Dragon' Wilson, Wings Hauser, Master P, Art Camacho and Jeff Speakman.

I just bought Inferno - Desert Heat on DVD the other day, to get it in widescreen. And yes. PM Entertainment Group was the shit back in the day. The most solid DTV company there was. One could always count on their films to have top notch stunts and action. I try to buy as many of their films as I can on DVD but most of them seem to have never been re-released on that format. I still have a few on VHS though.

I would say a rather high percentage is or have been out on DVD, but most of it is OOP or hard to find at the moment. I have some doublets for sale if you might be interested.

Some of the PM movies I have on DVD (only Scandinavian releases, old pictures though):

I couldn't agree with you more :up:

Those pictures bring a tear to my eye.

You, good sir, are doing the Lord's work.
