Between Hell and a Hard Place
dir Jaysen Buterin
website
La Valle de las Sombras. “The Valley of the Shadows.” A desolate and deserted stretch of countryside, just to the left of the middle of nowhere, and as far removed from “civilisation” as those that travel through it. For years, the valley was a dumping ground for all manner of things better left unseen, unsaid and unforgiven. “nothing but blood and bodies,” the few remaining locals would say. . . if they weren’t six feet under themselves.

So when two contract killers – one with a crisis of conscience and the other with no conscience at all – start to see things in the darkness and in the shadows, things that cannot possible be there, can they get out in time before they’re both stuck between Hell and a hard place?

dir Frederick Friedel

A group of three psychopaths on the run from the law go about terrorizing the local townsfolk of a small community before descending on an isolated farm which is home to a young girl named Lisa (Leslie Lee) and her paralyzed grandfather.

dir Robert W. Filion
website

Athena is about Carl whose life has crumbled, and who now exists as a shell of a man. His wretched existence is punctuated by the loss of his wife and all of the emotional scarring that has created. It’s also about Emily, who is not well herself. She may be slightly schizophrenic and manic depressive, but she’s doing fine in general… stable job, active social life. Things could be better, if only she had Carl. There is hope, however. Hope in the form of a voice which appears to Carl, then to Emily. That voice is Athena, but is she merely manipulating the situation, or is she genuinely attempting to help these two people? Life is messy, and she could be making things worse.

dir Belinda Sallin

He feels at home in places we would flee from and lives his life among the very things we fear. Throughout his life, HR Giger had inhabited the world of the uncanny, a dark universe on the brink of many an abyss. It was the only way this amiable, modest and humorous man was able to keep his fears in check. Giger was merely the bearer of dark messages, charting our nightmares, drafting maps of our subconscious and molding our primal fears. A film with and about the internationally acclaimed and controversial painter, sculptor, architect and designer (Oscar for ‘Alien’).

9:15pm Toxic Tutu Sneak Preview with introduction by Mark Torgl
dir Joe Nardelli
website

TOXIC TUTU™ is a mockumentary feature film that chronicles the emergence of Mark Torgl, who starred as Melvin the Mopboy in the legendary cult film classic “The Toxic Avenger”.

After a thirty-year absence as the superhero and star of this Troma classic, a dark truth unfolds on-camera as Mark embarks upon a year-long journey into the monster convention circuit.

During this tour fans begin to speculate that the toxic wastes used on the set of the “Toxic Avenger” were real, causing concerns that Mark may have developed a hideous disfiguration, which, they surmise kept him in hiding all these years.

In Toxic Tutu you will discover secrets about occurrences that took place on the set of the original movie, and how this changed Mark’s life forever. The film also honors Troma fans and strays into themes such as: sexual exploitation; being different; and gratuitous violence making certain to avoid boring, politically correct rhetoric about these themes.

The film contains documentary style interviews with fans and guest celebrities, original narrative scenes with a mock docudrama feel, a blend of original newsreel footage and commentary, still photos and archive material all precisely edited to reach a shocking Good vs Evil climax that is wicked and unanticipated.

You will find great moments of pleasure and titillation woven into the realism of this Toxic Tutu experience. So, brace yourself for the unexpected…
