Convinced a robbery will happen again and by someone he knows, John develops a severe case of insomnia. John goes through a downward spiral, choosing to stay awake until he catches his culprit.

After Death

“When failed inventor James Jones (Paul Freeman) dies in a laboratory accident, his estranged children return to the family estate to settle his affairs. They each bring their own baggage: Eloise (Claira Watson Parr) has never recovered from the loss of her mother and brother, and cant find a lasting job or relationship. Yossarian (Ben Shockley) is a presenter on a bad daytime TV show. Suki (Nicola Goodchild) has always been the practical one, and she takes out her ill humor on her timid spouse, Colin (Jonathan Hansler). The only thing the siblings seem to share is their guilt over abandoning their father seven years ago, when he accidentally killed their brother Tom (David Wayman). A lawyer (David Acton) hired by their shady Uncle Simon (Linal Haft) informs the siblings that their father had borrowed against the house for his last experiment, and that his estate belongs to the bank.

They must find what they need to make the link work, or the souls of their father and brother will be lost forever when they lose the house.

What began as a mission to save a wrongly convicted man turns into a battle for their own lives.”

Phantom of the Grindhouse

“Blood, ska and fun flow in this over-the-top, goofy re-imagining of the classic tale. When the Sleepy Hollow Heights Horror Club learns their local grindhouse will be shut down, they plan a 24-hour horror-movie-marathon as a last-ditch effort to save the theater. Unbeknownst to them, The Phantom, a derelict who has been hiding out at the theater for years, will stop at nothing to keep the meddling kids from ruining his sanctuary. But when The Phantom gets a load of their leader Christine, things turn from bad to worse as he falls head over heels for the girl of his dark dreams.”

Do You Like My Basement?

“Do You Like My Basement? tracks how one man’s creative frustration bore a need to make the perfect horror film. Stanley Farmer was rejected universally by the film world. His frustration provoked a darker side and soon cunning, guile, devilish charm and a sociopath’s streak compelled him to produce a home-made magnum opus. A film that blurs the lines between reality and fiction and demands the attention of the very world that spurned him.”

William is willing to give Ryan the inside scoop on the killings, including where he buried his baby brother, in exchange for the five pills that will allow William to end his own life. The terms of the bargain are that William will give Ryan five separate interviews as long as Ryan brings one of the pills to each of the interviews. At the end, Ryan will have the story of a life time and William will be dead but can Ryan trust a cold blooded killer to keep his word? Is it worth the risk of his wife losing her career for stealing the pills? Ryan is put to the test and has to ask himself if he has the courage to play the ultimate game of Russian roulette.”

Psychophony: An Experiment in Evil

“In the mid 2000’s, Dr. Helen Jara carried out a series of psychological experiments on a group of patients with schizophrenia. These experiments were not approved by the board of Psychological Studies. Dr. Jara was attempting to prove that these patients’ hallucinations were of paranormal origin. She succeeded by recording unexplained paranormal phenomena on a series of devices; but in the process of doing so, the paranormal activity increased dramatically, culminating in the unexplained death of Dr. Jara, Parapsychologist Matias Kram and his assistant. When the videotapes and recordings were found by investigators, they discover bone chilling EVPs that were not documented in the journals, resulting in the unexpected manifestation of horrifying Psychophonies. The youngest patient is asked to return and resume the experiment, which results in a confrontation with dark and nefarious forces from the other world.”
