Zygote

by Neill Blomkamp

Stranded in an Arctic mine, two lone survivors are forced to fight for their lives, evading and hiding from a new kind of terror.

Part of Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Chappie) and Oats Studios series of experimental films. Zygote stars Dakota Fanning and Jose Pablo Castillo. This film is a follow up to Firebase, and possibly features the most grotesque and terrifying monster you ever seen.

Night of The Slasher

by Shant Hamassian

A “one-take” slasher film about a teenage girl who lures a masked killer by purposely committing horror movie sins.

Not the typical slasher film you’ve grown to get used to. Night of the Slasher has all the clichés you would expect from a slasher; the half-naked dancing, sex, alcohol, drugs and a masked murder, but in a twisted reinvented order.
