Black Friday (Judd Nelson), Maneater (Gary Busey), The Sitter (Gail O'Grady), Deadly Suspicion (Marilu Henner), Something Beneath (Kevin Sorbo), and Eye of the Beast (James Van Der Beek) are just a few of the initial titles and cast.

Additionally, as part of the overall package, RHI is offering many of its award winning classics on a "Free on Demand" service. The FOD offering, entitled RHI Showcase, features such well known, and beloved titles as, Alice in Wonderland, The Prince and the Pauper and Captains Courageous.

"RHI Entertainment has been producing first-rate movies, miniseries and series for television for many years," said Robert Halmi, Jr., President and CEO of RHI Entertainment. "We're looking forward to expanding our products on these new platforms and growing relationships with our distribution partners."

Following the exclusive world premiere VOD exhibition, cable networks such as SCI FI, Spike TV and Lifetime will telecast the original movies in their premiere broadcast/cable window. Genius Entertainment will release the movies on home video.
