Anagram Puzzle


A few years ago, the theater down the block from me, known for years as the Plaza, was bought by the owners of the Pavilion (at the other end of Park Slope) and renamed the Flatbush Pavilion. They showed a sequence of the worst imaginable movies, trying (I guess) to attract a crowd of undiscriminating teenagers. It worked, except for the crowd part, and the theater closed last summer. The marquee continued to display the names of the two dreadful Summer 2004 crap movies that were playing there, until this week, when someone rearranged the letters as shown at right.

Update:
dailyheights.com displays two suggested anagrams:

OH NO INFERNAL GERMANS VANISHING FINE MARVEL

and

MAN OF NINE GROINS MARVELS IF HE HAVIN LAGER


Knowing that the anagramming vandals used the letters from both sides of the marquee (each title was displayed two times, once on each side) and that they didn't use four letters (N, I, I, L), can you tell what the movies were? For extra credit can you come up with an anagram that uses all the letters? (For the record, I cannot, at least not without programmatic assistance.)

Comments are screened, so all of you can feel free to guess away, and I'll unscreen them all in a couple of days so we can see the winner and the amusing other suggestions I hope we'll get.
