FACE OF EVILA war vet returns home, but a mysterious epidemic breaks out and infects his friends… The nightmare has just begun.
“Personally, I was extremely offended by this movie. … it’s so disrespectful to me in the way this particular topic was handled.” – Vanessa “… the actor that portrayed Sarge entertained me greatly …” – Rafe “The sequence of events is too wacky to be real and but not surrealistic enough to be a nightmare or a hallucination.” – Jeff “It’s a little bit of a sloppy, wobbly movie. I enjoyed it more on its intention than its execution.” – DocDirector: Vito Dinatolo Cast: Scott Baxter, Chad Bishop, Jamie Bernadette
WHAT STILL REMAINSAfter the loss of her family, a young woman struggles to survive in a world long-since destroyed by disease; but when a lonely traveler offers her a place in his community, she must decide if the promise of a better life is worth the risk of trusting him.
“The cinematography is gorgeous. The set dressing is gorgeous. This world feels lived in and it feels twenty years removed from the society that we have.” – Rafe “I was with Anna (Lulu Antariksa) the whole way, being cautious with Peter (Colin O’Donoghue) while trying to figure out just exactly what was going on. What was his true motive and true character and what his community was going to be like? I was intrigued with that.” – Jeff “The acting and the cinematography are fantastic.” – DocDirector: Josh Mendoza Cast: Lulu Antariksa, Colin O’Donoghue, Mimi Rogers
SUMMER OF 84After suspecting that their police officer neighbor is a serial killer, a group of teenage friends spends their summer spying on him and gathering evidence, but as they get closer to discovering the truth, things get dangerous.
“Now this is a really good movie! There is no way you could watch this movie and not enjoy it. It is nostalgia on high. I just fell in love with this Summer of 84.” – Vanessa “I loved the feel and the nostalgia of Summer of 84.” – Jeff “There are some incredibly chilling scenes that were bold moves in my opinion and left me kind of rattled at the end of the film.” – DocDirector: FranÃ§ois Simard, Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell Cast: Graham Verchere, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery
