Welcome to Hell

After the accidental murder of his own parents, Sock, a genuinely sweet but somewhat unstable teen who struggles with homicidal tendencies, decides that his only way out is to commit suicide. Upon arrival in Hell he is not met with eternal torture and suffering, but with Mephistopheles, the amicable manager of the underworld, who instead makes him a job offer: Sock is to become a demon, charged with the task of haunting humans indefinitely in the hope of ultimately driving them to suicide. At first this seems like Sock’s dream job—a way he can finally act on his darker desires and have them be met with reward rather than consequence—but after meeting his first target, a disinterested, lonely, and apathetic highschooler named Jonathan, he finds that the job is not as easy as he’d hoped it would be. Sock’s unfortunately friendly demeanor proves to be a detriment, and as he attempts to haunt the unwavering Jonathan, he finds himself with another desire that just might be stronger… and just might have a consequence.

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?

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.
