Various Passion Productions dollar DVDs found at Dollar Tree and elsewhere.

Many of the recent Dollar Tree DVD boom include a bunch of titles by Passion Productions, although it doesn't always say it as so on the outside package. The stock varies widely store by store. Many people have reported that they've seen copies of the black & white William Shanter Esperanto film, Incubus (1965)(paired with Incident on a Dark Street (1973), but I couldn't find it at 7 different stores.

In Till You Die (1992)
Desperation Highway (1998)
To Die, to Sleep (1994) - Until i looked it up, I thought the title of this was "Dr. Sleep" due to the way it's written on the cover. Ami Dolenz, yum.
Daughters of Yemanja (1995) - Much of this film is not in english, and it ain't subtitled, so part of the movie is figuring out what they're saying(mainly finnish & portuguese).
Iron Horsemen (1995) - Another masterpiece from Finland! This one is in english and has a cameo by Jim Jarmusch.

In Search of America (1971)
Deep Red (1975)/Silent Night, Bloody Night (1974) Dario Argento's Deep Red is taken from the Anchor Bay DVD as it is the same length and has subtitles in some portions.
Basic Football (1994)/C.C. and Company (1970) - Quite and odd pairing. Basic Football is a straight to VHS instructional video hosted by Burt Reynolds. It's super dated and quite cheesy(and fun). Burt's wig in this one is not one of his best.
