If anything, Scream for Help is most famous for making Tom Holland a director.

Holland, a hot commodity after writing Psycho 2, was apparently so aghast with director Michael Winner's take on his Scream for Help screenplay, that he decided to direct his next script hims...

Late into the humid summer night of August 21, 1955, eleven members of the Sutton farm family appeared at the Hopkinsville, KY sheriff’s office, visibly distraught. This clan of non-drinking, devout Southern Baptists carried with them an incredible tale: that they had...

From the creators of Flipper comes the next chapter in helpful, legless mammal entertainment. 

A cult oddity forever only available on VHS and DVD bootlegs, Mr. No Legs has taunted exploitation fetishists for decades. I mean, c'mon, that poster and tagline ("Don't...
