The Master at his scarifying best! From heart-pounding terror to the eeriest of whimsy-tales from the outer limits of one of the greatest imaginations of our time! In "The Mist," a supermarket becomes the last bastion of humanity as a peril beyond dimension invades the earth... Touch "The Man Who Would Not Shake Hands," and say your prayers... There are some things in attics which are better left alone, things like "The Monkey"... The most sublime woman driver on earth offers a man "Mrs. Todd's Shortcut" to paradise... A boy's sanity is pushed to the edge when he's left alone with the odious corpse of "Gramma"... If you were stunned by Gremlins , the Fornits of "The Ballad of the Flexible Bullet" will knock your socks off... Trucks that punish and beautiful teen demons who seduce a young man to massacre; curses whose malevolence grows through the years; obscene presences and angels of grace-here, indeed, is a night-blooming bouquet of chills and thrills.Show more
Academy Award-nominees Paul Giamatti and David Strathairn star in Norman Corwin's electrifying dramatization of the history-making Lincoln-Douglas debates. This fierce rivalry between rising legislator Abraham Lincoln and incumbent Senator Stephen A. Douglas tackled some of the day's most passionate and controversial issues - above all those of slavery and the American concept of freedom. As seen through the eyes of Douglas' young wife Adele, the play illuminates two of the most charismatic politicians of any era. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Paul Giamatti as Stephen A. Douglas David Strathairn as Abraham Lincoln Lily Rabe as Adele Douglas James Gleason as Rep. Committeeman and Reporter Directed by Eric Simonson. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.Show more
Bob Arctor is a dealer of the lethally addictive drug Substance D. Fred is the police agent assigned to tail and eventually bust him. To do so, Fred takes on the identity of a drug dealer named Bob Arctor. And since Substance D--which Arctor takes in massive doses--gradually splits the user's brain into two distinct, combative entities, Fred doesn't realize he is narcing on himself. Caustically funny, eerily accurate in its depiction of junkies, scam artists, and the walking brain-dead, Philip K. Dick's industrial-grade stress test of identity is as unnerving as it is enthralling.Show more
