“Zombies. Killer Robots. Nice town you got here.” With unrelenting action and unyielding suspense, Battle of the Damned allows you to pick your apocalypse–germ warfare, zombie assaults and/or deadly robots!
When a deadly virus is accidentally released into a major city, its population is quarantined by military blockade. And for a wealthy industrialist desperate to rescue his daughter from inside the rabid chaos, his only hope is former commando Max Gatling (Dolph Lundgren). Now Gatling has one day to bust in, blast through hordes of the undead, find the girl, and hunt for a way to get them both out alive. But will a small band of survivors and an army of killer robots turn his mission into maximum slaughter? Matt Doran and David Field co-star in this terrifying look into the future. Set against a ravaged landscape, it is a battle against flesh and steel–a battle between outlaw and outbreak that has been dubbed “awesome badass . . . one of the craziest movies of Dolph’s career and arguably one of his best!”

The Bard once wrote: “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” Shakespeare, hang on to your plume because you’re about to meet Sadie … On February 4, Anchor Bay Films releases Scorned, a story guaranteed to make any man eternally faithful!

But when an unexpected–and unfortunate–text from her best friend Jennifer (Viva Bianca) to Kevin reveals a lurid love affair between the two, Sadie spirals into a hunger for revenge that is without mercy.
Created along the lines of Misery and Fatal Attraction, Scorned is both a multi-dimensional study of a twisted, tormented character and a seductive thriller. It is the story of a woman overcome with a fury that is unheard of in heaven and unmatched in hell
