Cannibal Flesh Riot!
Writer/Producer/Director: Gris Grimly
Cannibal Flesh Riot! is a black comedy about unusual friendships, culinary tastes and the repercussions for feasting on the dead. A stylish modern film that mixes verbal wit, stop motion, and B-Horror from the ‘50s Drive-in era.
Stash and Hub, two redneck ghouls, take a journey through an ancient graveyard to do what ghouls have done for centuries: grave defiling, necrophilia, and cannibalism. On their midnight walk, they rant about their idiosyncrasies. But this morbid journey to feast on the dead does not unfold as it has the numerous nights before. Stash and Hub have raided the resting place of the deceased one too many times and the dead do not take lightly being fed on for centuries.
This film is a cinematic representation of rock and roll, EC horror comics, drunken philosophy and a barnyard hoedown. Taste the flavors of 50’s B films, German Expressionism and stop motion effects.
Horror Comedy*, USA, 29 min


Cost of Living
Producer/Director/Writer: Jonathan Joffe
What would you pay to live forever? That is the question posed by Cost Of Living, a short film starring William B. Davis (Cigarette Smoking Man, The X-Files).

An engaging script, powerful performances, and stylish effects make this short film a must see for everyone.

I'll See You in My Dreams
Producers: Paula Diogo, Filipe Melo; Director: Miguel Angél Vivas; Writers: Melo, Vivas, Ivan Vivas
In a village inexplicable haunted by a plague of zombies, Lucio is the one man who can fight them. No one is safe in this dark near-future, when even loved ones can be transformed into horrible demons who seek to kill and eat you. This situation is temporarily forgotten in the local bar, where the inhabitants of the village take refuge, pretending that things are normal.  Well, almost normal.  But things aren't normal, and those that drink in that dark pub demonstrate the one truth in life: the one thing that is worse than a mindless monster, is a human.
Horror*, Portugal, 20 min


Means To An End
Producers/Directors/Writers: Paul Solet, Jake Hamilton
Pete and Jasper are two horror-crazed special effects artists with big aspirations and a unique philosophy about their beloved genre: Horror needs special effects that are REAL.

When they find themselves ostracized by the mainstream industry as a result of their unorthodox techniques, they set out to make their own film, starring themselves. Production is a bloodbath. Battered, bruised and slashed, Pete and Jasper cut together an excellent film and set forth on a quest for distribution. But they remain blacklisted. No one is willing to take a chance. Finally, they find one executive willing to take on their film, under one condition—they must find a climax that KILLS….
Extreme Horror*, USA, 14 min
