Description & Features+
"Mother Lode": It's Silas McGee's gold. He just hasn't found it yet, although he's searched for his mother lode for more than 30 years in the remote high country of British Columbia. Strangers with a similar bent for gold had best stay away: folks like that may never come out of McGee's mine alive. Charlton Heston directs from a script by Fraser Heston and plays the double roles of mad recluse Silas and his even stranger twin Ian in this gritty survivalist adventure. Nick Mancuso and Kim Basinger in one of her earlier film roles, play the duo who end up in McGee's world after their aircraft develops engine trouble... and who find much greater trouble when they begin to suspect his claim could hold a fortune. "Soylent Green" is landmark screen science-fiction, a riveting entertainment and a cautionary tale that holds a mirror to a tomorrow rife with ecological disaster. Working well again in the futuristic genre following "Planet of the Apes" and "The Omega Man", action titan Charlton Heston portrays Thorn, a detective prowling the dank streets of a polluted, overpopulated Big Apple gone rotten in 2022. He's trailing a murderer - and the trail leads to a stunning discovery. "Skyjacked": Hank O'Hara is as good a pilot as they come. He knows how to handle an airliner in turbulent skies. How to settle the big bird down like a baby put to bed. But now he faces the unexpected. He's been "Skyjacked". "The Omega Man": Welcome to the future. Biological war has decimated life on Earth. Los Angeles is a windswept ghost town where Robert Neville tools his convertible through sunlit streets foraging for supplies. And makes damn sure he gets undercover before sundown, when other "inhabitants" emerge. "The Omega Man" adapts Richard Matheson's novel "I Am Legend" into a high-impact, high-tension saga of a fate not far removed from reality. Charlton Heston is Neville, fending off attacks by The Family, sinister neopeople spawned by the plague. He also becomes a man with a mission after meeting Lisa (Rosalind Cash), another uninfected survivor - and guardian of some healthy children representing our species' hope.
