She is taken to a remote cabin where she learns that a demon has been growing inside of her all these years, and before the dawn it will rise.  Read More

Jason joins his best friend Colin and his family for a relaxing (haha) weekend in a remote cabin in the woods that they found on Craigslist. Their company is Colin’s sister whom Jason is bashfully in love with and their father and his somewhat alcoholic girlfriend. For the three teenagers, relaxing means boring and they are understandably not that keen on having a ‘relaxing weekend’ in the middle of nowhere with two drunk adults. They may not know that ‘boring’... Read More

Hobo with a Shotgun

It is not easy to make something that is so tacky that it’s good. But ‘Hobo With a Shotgun’ navigates with great ease in the borderland between bad taste and uncompromising exploitation.
