Run Time: 100 Minutes

Cast:  Paz de la Huerta, Adam Brooks, Laurence R. Harvey, Samantha Hill, Udo Kier

Synopsis:  Rey Ciso was once the greatest editor the world had ever seen. Since a horrific accident left him with four wooden fingers on his right hand, he’s had to resort to cutting pulp films and trash pictures. When the lead actors from the film he’s been editing turn up murdered at the studio, Rey is fingered as the number one suspect. The bodies continue to pile up in this absurdist giallo-thriller as Rey struggles to prove his innocence and learn the sinister truth lurking behind the scenes.

Julia

Directed by: Matthew A. Brown

Run Time: 95 Minutes

Cast: Ashley C. Williams, Tahyna Tozzi, Jack Noseworthy

Synopsis:  We see a face of a girl coming up an escalator. The camera is fixed on Julia – and will remain so for the whole film. Julia is a rape survivor – but she’s struggling to cope until she meets a violent therapy group that seems to suit her needs. But is the group perhaps more of a cult – just as intent on getting her under their control as the original rapists? What follows is an unblinking study of violence, revenge, castration and empowerment.
