"CONTENTS of PACKING HEAT 4 Movie Pack:
BROKEN REALITY-- Hollywood homicide detective investigating his girlfriend's death becomes the prime suspect.
DEATH HOUSE-- An interesting movie that shifts genres midway through. For the first half-hour it's a car-chase/mafia action film-- later it becomes a horror flick where government drug experiments on death row inmates transforms them into an army of zombies. Directed by John Saxon.
A KILLING AFFAIR-- A woman living in rural West Virginia shelters her husband's killer from his pursuers.
STINGRAY-- Two drug dealers shoot the cops attempting to sting them. They flee with $1,000,000 and stash their drugs in a classic Corvette, unbeknowst to the car's new owners who drive off. Comedy action flick stars Robert Mitchum's son Chris.

"I bought this to watch Stingray. Low budget movie, but a classic! The dub quality was so so - kind of a bummer - but still watchable."
