After being inhabited by a hell-spawned demon, a decaying cadaver is
reanimated in its grave and sent on a brutal strangling spree throughout
the wilds of Maryland. It seems he's been possessed by a "Fiend" — a
force of unadulterated evil — and must assimilate the life-essence of
human victims to rejuvenate his constantly rotting visage. However, when
the bodies begin piling up a neighbor turned amateur sleuth takes it
upon himself to find the murderer — but at what cost? This is a
fast-paced, unrated horror romp with some downright mean surprises.
NIGHTBEAST was the third movie written and directed by Don Dohler, and
is generally the fan favorite of all Dohler’s early productions. Shot in
1981-82 on a budget of $40,000, NIGHTBEAST contains wall-to-wall action
and loads of visual and make-up FX.
Historically, the movie speaks volumes: The visual effects were created
by Ernest D. Farino, who went on to become one of the premier Directors
of Visual Effects (From the Earth to the Moon, Children of Dune) in
Hollywood. And much of the exciting muscial score was created by J.J.
Abrams -- then 15 years old -- who is the creator and executive producer
of the hit ABC series “Alias” and the new ABC series “Lost.” In
addition, Tom Cruise has tapped Abrams to direct “Mission Impossible 3”

The titling here is strictly exploitation on the part of Fred Olen Ray,
with whom we made the deal to distribute this DVD. This movie has
nothing to do with Don Dohler’s original cult classic. The title is
really just Alien Rampage, and was Don’s comeback movie shot in
1999-2000. It was during this production that Don and Joe Ripple became
good friends and decided to launch Timewarp Films. Alien Rampage tells
the story of an intergalactic female visitor who stops on earth to
obtain some needed uranium to power her ship. But the FBI gets wind of
the theft from a nuclear power plant and hotly pursues the alien. They

the tone for "Harvesters," a blood-curdling clash of two evil forces,
both bent on destruction. This high-energy, action-packed thriller pits
an outlaw gang, led by lesbian Gulf War vet Frankie Falzone, against the
Peelmans - a seemingly "normal" family who harbor a dark and deadly
secret. As two U.S. marshals close in on the gang, the terror mounts and
the body count rises. The ensuing battle for survival - set amidst
scenes of heart-thumping horror and mayhem - will have you on the edge

combat-trained priest, a street-hardened scientist and an electronics
expert -- have discovered a pathway to our earth. Their only hope for
survival? Make the jump. But before they can escape, the queen of the
vampires, Alyssa, discovers their plan and along with her two equally
evil bodyguards, uses the device to transport here as well. Not only

-- her own pureblood. The purebloods can't be killed by ordinary means.

desire to feed ... on human blood! Once the kinky fun starts, the
sisters bare their fangs and the feeding frenzy begins! After these
sensual bloodsuckers are finished, they drag the bodies to a hideous
creature they keep locked in their shed. As the Missing Persons pile up,
two undercover vice squad detectives pose as a kinky couple to
infiltrate the vampire sisters' home. A chilling battle between the
sisters and the undercover cops leads to a mind blowing climax... Iggy
-- the creature in the shed -- is finally released!
