== SCREENING SCHEDULE ==
4:15 pm - [ SHORT SHOCKS: Short Movie Showcase]
- BLACKBAGS (2012) || WORLD PREMIERE || - Things are getting hot for Ski Mask Guy and his gang of masked villains. Too many habits have begun to spiral out of control. If it's not a corrupt police detective breathing down his neck for a fix, he has to try and put a limit on the new hobby of his crony, the Meathead: cruising the city streets at night and abducting young girls. But when these two problems collide, Ski Mask Guy must find a way to wrap up these loose ends without going down himself.... Dir. Luke Meneok.
- TRASH (2011) - What starts out as a seemingly harmless prank on a suburban teenage boy spirals into crimson chaos in this throwback to 80's and 90's shot-on-video horror films! Dir. Torin Langen.
- THE GIANT RUBBER MONSTER MOVIE: SASCRATCH VERSUS AFRODESIOUS (2011) - Dr. Zoid, an evil vegetarian from the year 25,000,000 A.D., steals a time machine and travels back to the present day. His mission: Destroy all of the Earth's edible animals using the giant monsters under his control. Fortunately, Miko - a young stowaway on Zoid's ship - escapes to help the Earthlings. With his new serial killing best friend Ken at his side, Miko commandeers one of Zoid's giant monsters to fight for the Earth! Dir. Thomas Berdinski. Starring Jeffrey S. Bromley, Brendan Bromley and Carmela Hayslett
4:52 pm - [ FEATURE FRIGHT]: DARKNESS (1997) - "Even the dead will scream." - In Leif Jonker's acclaimed 1990's indie gore-fest, a small community is besieged by vampires. After he watches friends ravaged in a convenience store, a lone avenger goes off to do battle with the undead, armed with shotgun, chainsaw, and Holy water. Later he finds other survivors and they try to stay alive long enough to do battle with Liven, king of the vampires.
Again, I hope everyone has a blast!
