Sci-Fi Collector's Set, Vol. 5
This collection brings together four very different sci-fi telemovies from disparate sources, produced between 1985 and 2005. The first installment, the low-budget, direct-to-video saga T-Force (1994), concerns a squad of highly dangerous cyborgs, hunted down by a rogue human cop; it stars Erin Gray (Silver Spoons) and Jack Scalia. The second feature, the made-for-television movie Lifepod (1993), concerns a group of interplanetary citizens who escape death from an explosion on their spaceship by boarding a life vessel, then discover that the initial catastrophe was the doing of a rogue team member. The third feature, Star Knight, marks an unusual entry in the line-up; produced in Spain in 1985 with a cast that includes Harvey Keitel and Klaus Kinski, it went direct-to-video in the U.S., seven years after its initial production. It concerns a cosmic explorer torn between unleashing chaos on a medieval town and striking up a romance with the daughter of a count. The last feature in the mix, 2005's The Final Patient, is a direct-to-video saga from the U.S. about a doctor who discovers the key to eternal life - at a horrible cost. It stars Bill Cobs and Guy Boyd.
