Films: Animal Abuse

  • PANDAS (PANDY)
    This apocalyptic short about the evolution of the Panda Bear from prehistory to the dystopian future is oozing with the psychedelic vitality of the “lowbrow” underground art style associated with Robert Williams and Gilbert Shelton.
  • Perfect Drug
    After a bungled burglary, a gang of hoods sit in a parked car waiting to hand off their loot – a suitcase full of neon test tubes – to a merciless crime boss. But when one of them dives into the stash, psychedelic ultraviolent mayhem ensues. Pure body-swapping anarchy with ice cream and pickles.
  • PERVERT BOY
    This is the story of four brothers and the inevitable clash between their lives in modern day Seoul. This is the story of a pervert boy and those who surround him.
  • PLAYGROUND
    It’s the last day of school in small town Poland and Gabrysia wants to tell her classmate that she loves him. But it will not end well.
  • RATS

    RATS

    Dir. Morgan Spurlock
  • RATS
    Morgan Spurlock’s latest documentary shows us the world of the rat, from the garbage of NYC to the dining plates of Vietnam to a Karni Mata Temple of worship in India.
  • Rigor Mortis
    A former movie star gets a battle he didn’t bargain for when he moves into a haunted public housing tenement inhabited by various degrees of the undead.
  • Spring

    Spring

    Dir. Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead
  • Spring
    After the death of his mother and a bar altercation that could mean jail time, Evan leaves California for Italy, where he falls for a mysterious young woman.
  • Still Life (Naturaleza Muerta)
    Meat is murder in this brutal Argentinian slasher with an animal rights edge.
  • THOROUGHBREDS
    Two teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. In the process, they learn that neither is what she seems to be, and that a murder might solve both of their problems.
  • THE TREACHEROUS
    Considered the worst tyrant in the long and rather oppressive history of Korea, King Yeonsan enslaved a thousand women to serve his carnal desires. This bawdy, unexpurgated (and almost surely exaggerated) tale of his sexual exploits is the heir apparent to the notorious 1980s era Hong Kong CAT III classics.  
  • Tusk
    From the singular mind of writer/director and podcaster Kevin Smith, and conceived from one of Smith’s own Smodcast’s, TUSK is a story unlike anything that has ever been committed to screen before. A tale that is equal parts hilarious and horrifying, TUSK will stay with you long after the credits roll.
  • UNICORN BLOOD (SANGRE DE UNICORNIO)
    A festival favorite since its premiere at Fant Bilbao last year, Alberto Vasquez’ follow up to his award-winning BIRDBOY (2011) is a plushy pastel tale of two teddy bears on the hunt for unicorn blood, a rare blueberry-flavored treat and the secret to eternal cuteness.
  • Vegetarian Cannibal
    A corrupt gynecologist provides illegal abortions to prostitutes working for the Croatian mafia.
  • Vulgaria
    What do pubic hair, pop rocks, cow vaginas and sex with mules have in common? They are all part of moviemaking in Hong Kong.
  • Wake in Fright
    A Palme D’Or nominee based on the 1961 book of the same name by Kenneth Cook and directed by FIRST BLOOD’s Ted Kotcheff, a relatively new director at the time, WAKE IN FRIGHT is an uncompromisingly brutal look at what happens when men are left alone together in the country with guns and a lot of beer. This is going to be a mind-blower on the big screen. Get ready.
  • Wastelander Panda: EXILE
    The Apocalypse has come and gone; its survivors forming small communities for protection. Banished to the vast Wasteland, Isaac - a giant humanoid panda - sets out to find a young girl and reinstate his family into the Tribe of Legion.
  • Whispers
    Convinced that the rats rampant in his home are trying to infest his body, a man slowly goes insane in a dank basement, surrounding himself with bloody trophies. Director Max Issacson LIVE in attendance!
