Riki-oh: The Story of Ricky (1991)

The summary of The Story of Ricky is really quite simple: In the far distant future of 2001 (*snort*), prisons are now privatized, no longer subject to even the most basic of government regulation. The prison (seemingly assembled from the “High School Gym Décor” catalogue) is governed by not only the violent and sadistic warden and assistant warden (claw hand and all), but also by the “Gang of Four”, ruthless and twisted inmates that oversee the four separate wings of the prison along with their roving gangs.

Humanoids from the Deep (1980)

Some very disturbing things are happening in the small fishing town of Noyo, California. A fishing boat blows ups without warning, the town’s dog population mysteriously winds up dead, and several residents seem to up and disappear out of thin air. The timing for all of this couldn’t be worse.

The canning company, Canco (no really, that’s the name) has even sent some VIPs to the town to drum up support, including one of its own scientists.
