Framed - On Alex’s farewell party with his friends, three strange invaders will kidnap them with the only goal of playing twisted mortal games while they stream it, turning all this insane torture into a viral show.Framed brings together the most common classic horror-film features (with an eye on “home invasion movies”) with the unstoppable rise of newest social media networks. A trend that’s changing the society and specially the way we relate to others. Framed is a dark glimpse with touches of black humour into this excess and overuse of social media by a part of society totally abandoned to viralness.
I’ll Take Your Dead - Followed by a Q&A with director Chad Archibald. William has a simple job: he makes dead bodies disappear. This isn’t something he likes to or even wants to do, but through circumstances out of his control, his little farm house in the country has become a dumping ground for the casualties of the gang-related murders in the nearby city. His daughter Gloria has become used to rough looking men dropping off corpses and is even convinced that some of them are haunting their house. After a woman’s body is dumped at the house, William begins his meticulous process when he realizes she’s not actually dead. As the gang activity increases, William patches the woman up and holds her against her will until he can figure out what to do. As they begin to develop a very unusual respect for each other, the woman’s murderers get word that she’s still alive and make plan to go finish what they started.
The Bray Road Beast - In their seventh film, Small Town Monsters takes you on an in-depth exploration of the real-life werewolf/dogman phenomenon, which spans from the eerie back roads of Wisconsin to the fields and villages of Europe where sightings of upright canids date back centuries. Is there more to these sightings than simple misidentifications of known animals or a hidden species of wolf? Join director Seth Breedlove and narrator Lyle Blackburn as they explore the possibilities in this award-winning documentary feature film.Followed by a Q&A with Lyle Blackburn
