Manoman-275x400

FLORIDA PREMIERE. When an office clerk attends primal scream class, he releases something from deep within that knows no limits.

Pet-275x400

EAST COAST PREMIERE. You can’t escape the bonds of love in the shocking Pet. Starring Dominic Monaghan (The Lord of the Rings, Lost) and Ksenia Solo (Black Swan), this audaciously twisted story centers on an introverted loner who imprisons a woman he’s obsessed with, only to find the tables turned on him. Like the dark and daring Hard Candy and Gone Girl but with more trashy fun, Pet will have you both squirming in your seat and teetering on the edge, but you won’t want to look away.

In this gripping found-footage horror thriller, a star of a survival television show is forced to fend for himself in the remote woods for a routine episode, until he’s awoken by an earth-shaking crash that unleashes a series of weird and eerie events ultimately forcing him to come face to face with his deepest fears and the otherworldly.

Night-Stalker-1-275x400

FLORIDA PREMIERE. A horror love story with tunes by the band Fort Lean presents bite-sized bits for all of your sex, gore, and hilarity cravings.

Beyond-the-Gates-275x400

EAST COAST PREMIERE. A throwback flick in the spirit of horror faves such as Phantasm, The Beyond, and Poltergeist, this endearing instant-classic is filled with unique, personal, witty, and utterly terrifying imagery as it pays loving tribute to the VHS format, video stores, and board games of the 80s era. Co-written by Stephen Scarlata (Jodorowsky’s Dune) and starring the First Lady of Fright Films, Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, We Are Still Here), Beyond the Gates centers on two estranged brothers who unearth an old VCR board game that acts as an inter-dimensional hub to a nightmare world where their Father’s soul is trapped and can only be saved by playing the game!
