The Haunting of Molly Hartley
In this tale of spell binding suspense, something evil lurks just beneath the lush surfaces of teenaged girl's private school world-and it holds the rights to her very soul.

My Name Is Bruce
Something evil is stirring in the small mining town of Gold Lick, and it's not happy. Guan-di, the Chinese protector of the dead with a strange affinity for bean curd, has been awakened by reckless teenagers, and now his bloody crusade to wipe out the town's entire population can only be stopped by one man--Bruce Campbell (the guy who starred in all three Evil Dead movies and Bubba Ho-tep), B-move star and deadbeat ex-husband extraordinaire, who's recruited to be their unwitting savior.

Thinking the whole scenario's a publicity prank, Bruce is distracted from his mission by a hot mom and fan boys aplenty--but when our hero has to face off against a dark force more fearsome than a Hollywood agent, the laughs and screams start flying!

Starring Adam Boyd, Bruce Campbell, Mike Estes, Janelle Farber, Kieran Henthorn
