Story: Collection of five horror films. In 'The Lost Boys' (1987), two brothers move to a new town and soon fall in with the wrong crowd. Nothing unusual about that, except these particular no-mark punks also happen to be blood-swilling vampires. The older brother (Jason Patric) proves easy prey and is soon a fully paid-up member of the undead. But the younger brother (Corey Haim) is made of tougher stuff and, along with a couple of friends, decides to make a stand. Pretty soon the suburbs start swinging to the sound of teen-vampire combat. In 'Ghost Ship' (2002), salvage operators Sean Murphy (Gabriel Byrne) and Maureen Epps (Julianna Margulies) think they might have struck the mother lode when they discover evidence of an abandoned cruise liner floating freely in the Bering Strait. They waste no time in tracking the ship down, and can't believe their luck when they discover numerous gold bars on board; however, they also recognise the need to work quickly as a rip in the ship's hull indicates that it might soon sink and be lost forever. Yet as the crew set to work and explore the ship further, they start to encounter ghostly phenomena and, one by one, the individual members begin turning up dead. 'Constantine' (2005) stars Keanu Reeves as John Constantine, a man who was born with a gift he didn't want - the ability to clearly recognise the half-breed angels and demons that walk the earth in human skin. Constantine was driven to take his own life to escape the tormenting clarity of his vision, but he failed. Resuscitated against his will, he found himself cast back into the land of the living. Now, marked as an attempted suicide with a temporary lease on life, he patrols the earthly border between heaven and hell, hoping in vain to earn his way to salvation by sending the devil's foot soldiers back to the depths. In 'House On Haunted Hill' (1999), decades after inmates at the Vannacutt Psychiatric Institute for the Criminally Insane were killed during a revolt against the cruel regime, tycoon Stephen Price (Geoffrey Rush) hires the building from its present owner, Watson Pritchett (Chris Kattan), in order to throw a ghoulish birthday party for his wife, Evelyn (Famke Janssen). Price invites a select group to the house, offering £1 million to anyone who can survive the night. However, things begin to go wrong when the man employed by Price to create a selection of creepy special effects is killed in an accident. Meanwhile, Evelyn's plan to murder her husband and inherit his fortune backfires as the tormented spirits of the murdered former patients return to exact a terrible revenge. Finally, in 'House of Wax' (2005), what begins as a weekend getaway for six friends becomes a terrifying fight for their lives. A road trip to one of the biggest college football games of the year takes a turn for the worse for Carly (Elisha Cuthbert), Paige (Paris Hilton) and their friends when they decide to camp out for the night before heading to the game. A confrontation with a mysterious trucker at the camp site leaves everyone unsettled, and Carly has her hands full trying to keep the peace between her boyfriend Wade (Jared Padalecki) and her hot-headed brother Nick (Chad Michael Murray). They wake up the next morning to find that their car might have been deliberately tampered with. At the risk of being stranded, they accept a local's invitation for a ride into Ambrose, the only town for miles. Once there, they are drawn to Ambrose's main attraction - Trudy's House of Wax, which is filled with remarkably life-like wax sculptures. But as they soon discover, there is a shocking reason the exhibits look so real. As the friends uncover the town's dark secrets, they are stalked by a mysterious killer and find themselves in a bloody battle for survival. The group must find a way out of Ambrose - or become permanent additions to the House of Wax.
