SYNOPSIS: Two classic sci-fi films on one disc
Gamma People: This is sort of a mash-up between "These are the Damned" and "1984". Two reporters travel to a miserable Eastern Euro country run by a dictator/mad scientist. There they discover a sinister plot wherein children are fitted with metal helmets and zapped with gamma rays!. Some of the tortured tykes turn out brilliant but the others....well, it's just too horrible to describe. An odd mix of horror, political commentary and even humor.
