FALL OF GRACE

Questionable but well-meaning father, Jase, is called into action when his daughter is possessed and seemingly kidnapped by a demonic entity. Attempting to rescue her, Jase summons a second demon so that he can force it to help him. Predictably, things don’t run smoothly and people die. It’s a pretty good premise that, in the … Continued

APOCALYPSE ROAD

Two-time Best Texas Director award winner Brett Bentman gives us a very different vision of a post-apocalyptic future. While Mad Max: Fury Road travels through such a future with relentless, bottleneck speed, Apocalypse Road is a patient navigation of a world reduced to its barren skeleton. As sisters Natalie (Katie Kohler) and Sarah (Ashlyn McEvers) … Continued

ANTIHUMAN

Three young women are accompanying their terminally-ill friend on a ‘bucket list’ return visit to the hospital run by her now-deceased mother when she was growing up.

CANNIBAL FOG

From a seedy study of sexual obsession to a deliciously disturbing comedy of manners, Jonas Wolcher’s Cannibal Fog mixes art-house sensibilities with gastronomic gore. The film’s focus is the fleeting pleasures of consuming alongside the physical and mental ecstasy and transformation that it, if you’re lucky, can bring. To lift the lid on even the … Continued

THE GATEHOUSE

A baffling slice of fantasy and would-be horror, The Gatehouse tells of young Eternity, a 10-year old girl living in an old gatehouse at the edge of a forest with her dad Jack.  Both are still mourning the loss of Eternity’s mother and Jack, an unemployed writer, is not doing very well at being a … Continued

BEYOND THE TREK

Low budget sci-fi movies have a habit of carefully naming themselves so they catch the casual browser unawares. Beyond the Trek is, as you may have guessed, nothing to do with the Star Trek franchise and previously has gone by the names ‘Teleios’ and ‘Deep Space’. None of these names really describe the movie, but … Continued

THE 13TH FRIDAY

One of the problems with the modern age is how literate everyone is with popular culture. Remixing and re-inventing established ideas has been around since stories began (and it’s fair to say that it was Shakespeare’s signature move). As you might be able to guess from the name, The 13th Friday is a remix of … Continued
