Clash (Bay Rong) (Country: Vietnam; Year: 2009; Director: Le Thanh Son; Writer: Johnny Nguyen; Stars: Hieu Hien, Thanh Van Ngo, Hoang Phuc Nguyen, Johnny Nguyen, Lam Minh Thang)
With lightning-fast martial arts, hyperbolic shootouts, an epic soundtrack, and the archetypes you love and love to hate, this cinematic indulgence follows a badass group of outcasts as they try to take down a fat-cat Vietnamese crime lord. The highest grossing Vietnamese film of the past year.

College student Hee-jin returns home in the wake of her younger sister’s disappearance, only to find her mother a fanatical religious convert and the family’s neighbors offing themselves in increasingly bizarre and grotesque ways.

Curtin, Kenny Ochoa, Gerardo Davila, Todd Jenkins, Chase Wade, Molly Spencer, Ray Martinez, Melissa Timmerman, Souk Burrows)
When a group of transgendered women are violently beaten and left for dead, the violated vixens turn deadly divas in this hilariously campy homage to the exploitation films of the Seventies and Eighties.
Zonad Zonad
Zonad and Possessed
Zonad (Country: Ireland; Year: 2009; Director: John Carney, Kieran Carney; Writer: John Carney, Kieran Carney; Stars: David Murray, Janice Byrne, Simon Delaney, Donna Dent, Juliette Gash, Rory Keenan, Slaine Kelly, Kevin Maher, Geoff Minogue, Liana O'Cleirigh, David Pearse, Laura Way)
The Cassidy family lives cheerfully in a small Irish town where the 1950s, it seems, never ended. Then one night a portly brute dressed sorta like an alien arrives at their house. His name is Zonad and he’s from outer space—or so he claims—and soon his cynical, 21st-century attitude begins disrupting this seemingly idyllic little hamlet.
