Shoreditch Slayer

Written/Directed by Simon Levene; Produced by Mavreen Brown

Vampires have hunted humans since the dawn of time. Yet with rising inflation, soaring unemployment and higher taxes, it is vampires who are currently struggling for survival.

The 20th century was a golden age for the undead; a little known fact is that real vampires have often appeared in horror movies. Cinema offered a chance at cash, glamor and respectability.

However, after years of steady income, the vampire film craze ended, largely due to the over-saturation of Twilight, Buffy, etc. This left many out of work and unprepared for a life outside of cinema.

This comedy/horror mockumentary follows five vampires as they attempt, at all costs, to look for new sources of income. However, getting paid or not, the killing never stops.

A mysterious private eye is hired by an arrogant advertising executive to investigate whether his partner is stealing from their ad agency, triggering fiendish consequences in this neo-noir film with a dash of creepy magical realism.

Filmed in Los Angeles, the story is loosely inspired by the critically acclaimed Brazilian novel The Devil To Pay In The Backlands. Like in noir novels, Stuffed depicts a world full of cynical attitudes with dialogues that sometimes sound outlandish. The title is used in the whimsical sense of “turned into stuff.”

Werewolf In A Girls Sorority

Written by Alex Barbatsis & Andy Mogren; Directed by Andy Mogren

This satire of college and werewolf movies is a melting pot of bloody deaths, sexy situations, explosions, werewolves and love at first sight.

Barksdale University is typically a very safe place. But last month’s killing of a young couple on a full moon has people worried, especially detective/wolf expert Will Funter who is in town to investigate Moon Studies 101 teacher Dr. Howell.

The girls at the sorority house are taking the death of their sister pretty hard, and they’re going to get over it the only way they know how, throwing a full moon party- after all, it’s tradition. ‘Every full moon!’ as they say.

Twenty two minutes of that, what could possibly go wrong?
