Pit & the pendulum : A young man's search for the truth of his sister's death uncovers a bizarre and ghastly secret--and plunges him into a mightmarish torture devised by a notorious master of the Inquisition.
Masque of red death : Follows Prince Prospero's attempts to avoid a dangerous plague known as the Red Death by hiding in his abbey. He, along with many other wealthy nobles, has a masquerade ball within seven rooms of his abbey, each decorated with a different color. In the midst of their revelry, a mysterious figure enters and makes his way through each of the rooms.
Haunted Palace : It is 1765, and the villagers of Arkham discover strange goings-on at Joseph Curwen's mansion. He is kidnapping their young girls and mating them with creatures of the night to breed a master-race of supremely evil power. A century after his death, Curwen's great grandson appears in the village and his presence terrifies the villagers.
Fall of the House of Usher: A man buries his sister alive in the large family mansion but she returns after death to take her revenge.
Abominable Dr. Phibes: Long thought dead, the victim of a horrible accident, Dr. Anton Phibes still lives, surrounded by art-deco bric-a-brac and attended by mute beauty Vulnavia. Outwardly normal in appearance, Phibes actually wears a rubber mask, covering his hideously deformed countenance; giving away the artifice is the fact that, when he dines, he takes his food through his neck rather than his mouth. Able to speak only when plugging a wire into his damaged vocal chords, Phibes elucidates his plan to murder the medical team whom he holds responsible for the death of his wife.
Witchfinder General: 1645 sees England in the grip of a bloody civil war. The structure of law and order has broken down. During this climate of fear, self-styled witch hunter, Matthew Hopkins tours the country preying on innocent victims in the name of the Lord.

"They were charismatic and forward thinking, imaginative and courageous, compassionate and resolute, and, at times, arrogant, vengeful and reckless. For hundreds of years, Native American leaders from Massasoit, Tecumseh, and Tenskwatawa, to Major Ridge, Geronimo, and Fools Crow valiantly resisted expulsion from their lands and fought the extinction of their culture. Sometimes, their strategies were militaristic, but more often they were diplomatic, spiritual, legal and political ... These five documentaries spanning almost four hundred years tell the story of pivotal moments in U.S. history from the Native American perspective, upending two-dimensional stereotypes of American Indians as simply ferocious warriors or peaceable lovers of the land" -- Container.
