Set in the far future of... 1992. This could be the forerunner of the RESIDENT EVIL films with its plot involving a dystopian future, bioweapons, and an evil corporation. Sadly, it's underdeveloped and I wished I had seen it in 3-D. With a young Demi Moore and two former Runaways (Cherie Currie and Cheryl Rainbeaux Smith).
Burnt out cop Andy Garcia moves to Eureka, CA to partner with his former mentor Lance Henriksen in the local p.d.

While attempting to protect her (in the midst…

Miller becomes both a lead (ROCK ALL NIGHT, WAR OF THE SATELLITES and, his most iconic role, A BUCKET OF BLOOD) and a memorable supporting actor (LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS). When Corman…
