REVIEWS FROM OUR PREVIOUS ISSUE, SHOCK CINEMA #59

Henry Hathaway's mix of cops, drugs, romance, and streetwise action with William Elliott and Marki Bey, Hangup [a.k.a. Super Dude].

Tom Pace stars in the fascinatingly atrocious tragic teen-romance, In the Fall of '55 Eden Cried.

Madeleine Stowe, Nick Corri and David Carradine in director Ciro Durán's bleak, drug-smuggling drama, Tropical Snow.
