Written/directed by Christian Jean; Produced by Christian Jean, Allison Samon, Race Owen

A Fistful of Dollars in The Twilight Zone. The Good, The Bad and Cthulhu. Set in 1899 in the sunbaked desolation of the high desert, Mojave Junction is a supernatural western telling the story of McTeague (Race Owen), a scoundrel who absconds with a treasure of stolen gold only to be tracked down by Marcus (Ed Marinaro), a wiry ‘ole prospector whose impulsiveness far outweighs his intelligence. Watch from the edge of your seat as these rock-ribbed adversaries clash in an escalating battle of wills, and recoil in horror as something sinister lurking among the dunes renders a final judgment on their greed.

Spidora

Written/Directed/Produced by Fred Olen Ray

After receiving a series of anonymous Shakespearean sonnets, Spidora (Megan Sheehan), a Side Show performer who plays the ‘Girl with the Body of a Hideous Spider’ at Dr. Grave’s (Jerry Lacy) Museum of the Weird, finally agrees to meet her secret admirer (Bobby Quinn Rice) at the urging of her fellow workers. In the dark dressing room after the last show, her true self is revealed.

While Spidora may look very strange on the surface, it is at its very heart, an eight-legged love story. A collaboration between the 1960s Dark Shadows TV star, Jerry Lacy, and cult film director, Fred Olen Ray, it’s an affectionate nod to the carnival freak shows of days gone, by where being different and finding love didn’t often go hand in hand.
