  • ALBATROSS SOUP
    Delightfully fluid animation lyrically complements a chorus of voices attempting to investigate a puzzling suicide posited by an idiosyncratic riddle.
  • THE BEANING
    There’s no other way to explain the New York Yankees’ unrivaled MLB success: a cold-blooded human sacrifice it is.
  • BEDRIDDEN
    After a night of regrets, a cascade of sinister threats from an omniscient voice paralyzes a young woman into state of perpetual fear. A potent premise, profound in execution.
  • THE BLOODY BALLAD OF SQUIRT REYNOLDS
    A twisted campfire tale quickly accelerates into a barrage of inspired and gory slasher gags meted out by a body-building, ‘stache-sporting fiend.
  • CATCALLS
    He’s on the prowl, but so are they. A satisfying and bloody swipe at street harassers.

    Amidst a grotesque but slickly animated menagerie of extreme plastic surgery, a man demands an operation that will realize his inner butterfly.

    Canada’s infamous cult collective reunite with another winning niche genre pastiche, this time lampooning the wintery western as they ricochet from absurdist hijinx to grotesque splatter.

  • DRUM WAVE
    A newlywed woman finds herself encroached upon by a malaise of dread as her husband’s family expects her to participate in a series of disconcerting fertility rituals. Low-key horror that simmers and haunts.
  • EMOTION 93
    Soaked in a hypnotic lo-fi aesthetic, a familiar body-swapping plot embraces the existential identity anxieties inherent in the premise.
  • END TIMES
    A man in mourning, portrayed with aching empathy by Robert Longstreet (THE MISSING GIRL), is confronted and existentially confounded by the final moments of a dying squirrel.

  • FEAST ON THE YOUNG
    Two sisters skirt the perimeter of a bloodthirsty creature’s domain in this exquisitely photographed foray into fairy folklore.
  • FLOOR 9.5
    If ever an elevator stops on a floor you don’t recognize, and the doors open to a quiet plea for help, pray you hold your ground; so warns this succinct tango of terror.
  • GOODNIGHT
    A mother investigates her daughter’s belief that a malevolent presence has been visiting her at night. A deeply unsettling permutation of the ol’ “there’s-a-monster-under-my-bed” chestnut.
  • GUTTER
    Sleep in, stay up late, stomp and repeat; it’s one way to live. The grizzly directorial debut of prolific genre editor Josh Ethier.
