Episodes

THE BLOOD OF THE DINOSAURS

18m

Director - Joe Badon

A children’s television host articulates the origin of fossil fuels in this madcap assemblage of parodic vignettes and distressing surrealism.

THE BLUE HOUR

13m

Director - Jeremias Segovia

A woman takes a late-night swim, a man forbodingly watches from afar; what follows is a haunting murder in absentia, eerily and methodically depicted by FF alum Jeremias Segovia (TOOTH FAIRY).

THE BUSINESSMAN

9m

Director - Nathan Ginter

A young girl encounters a mysterious salesman intent on coercing her into selling fashion magazines in this unnerving slice of foreboding atmosphere.

CHICKS

19m

Director - Geena Hernandez

Fitting in can be a real drag for a teenage girl, especially when the “chicks” pressure you. This bubblegum satirical horror will make you look at friendship and pillow fights in a whole new light.

THE COMMUNITY

4m

Directors - Milos Mitrovic & Eric Peterson

Astron-6’s Adam Brooks seeks out an oblique informant (Fantastic Fest veteran Milos Mitrovic) in order to obtain a precious commodity. Straight-faced absurdism born out of a 48-Hour Film Challenge.

CRUISE

7m

Director - Sam Rudykoff

In this pitch-black workplace satire, a telemarketer desperately tries to give away a free cruise — and it’s a matter of life or death.

DEERWOODS DEATHTRAP

9m

Director - James P. Gannon

They almost died that day, on that point Jack and Betty can agree — the rest of the details are the subject of debate.

EAST END

10m

Director - Grant Curatola

The sordid details of a vicious crime are recounted and remixed through the rumor mill of a community gripped by paranoid fear and morbid curiosity. Its soundtrack peppered with iconic horror cues, this round of broken telephone crescendos to an ominous and disarming note.

THE EVENT

11m

Directors - Frank Mosley & Hugo De Sousa

Vince just wants Jack to make some time. A delicate cringe comedy about film, friendship, and procrastination.

EVERYBODY GOES TO THE HOSPITAL

9m

Director - Tiffany Kimmel

A myriad of traumas manifest in 1963, as a young girl is taken to a hospital for appendicitis in this stop-motion phantasmagoria inspired by the childhood memories of the mother of its writer/director.

EX CRETA

6m

Director - Jon Portman

Put away your papier-mâché. There’s a new arts and crafts wizard in town, and his choice of materials is decidedly different.

BUZZKILL

5m

Director - Peter Ahern

Don’t you just hate it when you’re hooking up with a cute guy, but you’ve got something(s) in your eye? Cute ‘n creepy!
