The Earth has been invaded by extraterrestrials. They send “domes” to replace our lands with theirs. Humans can do nothing but run away and wait for the end of our world.

Soh Tokita is a retired high school teacher who has joined the UN force dedicated to maintain order of the world. But his wife, Misaki, who once was his student, has not been able to accept the reality that the world has gone to ruin. She has kept living in her beautiful memories and in a fictional ordinary life. All Tokita can do is watch over her, acting like nothing is wrong.

But now the order has come through for them to leave for an evacuation shelter. Misaki cannot escape from the tragic world any more.

With Hiroyuki Watanabe (Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack).

Quenottes is a story about a little mouse, but not just any mouse. It is THE little mouse, or tooth fairy, of your childhood—the one that brought you your first coin in exchange for the tooth under your pillow. In everybody’s mind, the little mouse is a benevolent and generous character. What if it isn’t? What if it is actually a neurotic psychopath obsessing about its collection of dental trophies? If a tooth is missing, it simply must be replaced. By any means necessary…

12 Kilometers

Written/Directed by Mike Pecci

12 Kilometers is a true edge-of-your-seat film, dragging you down to the darkest depths of the human psyche, while taking you on a beautiful ride through director Mike Pecci’s nightmare. The film serves as a prologue and proof of concept for a feature film that Pecci wrote while in intensive care suffering from a massive head injury. Early last year, when attempting to ice skate for the first time, he slipped and cracked open his skull. A massive blood clot formed around his brain causing hallucinations and nightmares, Pecci dreamed of a creature that could control your inner voice. Two weeks later he wrote the script for a first film in a horror franchise. One month later he was starting production on the prologue…this film. All the FX and visuals for 12KM were shot in-camera, and biologist and micro photographer Linden Gledhill filmed the creature FX on sets no larger than the surface of a dime. The film is in Russian dialect to immerse the audience a reality that is based on the actual events at the Kola Borehole in Russia. Imagine if Spielberg, Carpenter, and Lynch teamed up to direct an episode of X-files and created a fresh new look for horror.
