Russian Doll’s second season does so much more than its first; exploring time travel against the gritty backdrop of a traumatic, yet therapeutic reckoning with Nadia’s childhood trauma, and allowing her to let go and live her life.
Inspired by director/co-writer Karlee Boon’s experience as a young woman in the food service industry, and her own desperation to leave home after high school, Night Shift – led by a diverse, majority femme cast and crew – is about feeling lost and ultimately finding the power to change it.
“My biggest goal with this production is to empower other women and underrepresented groups to truly bite back against the status-quo, even when it feels impossible.”

After a year in cyber captivity, the Unnamed Footage Festival is returning to the theaters of San Francisco for four days of found footage horror, faux documentary, and first-person POV programming.
“Found footage horror, faux documentary, POV cinema.”
Like the tagline, you shouldn’t take this film seriously. If you’re a horror fan who has never seen this sequel before, I would recommend it. There’s plenty of humour where you don’t expect it, great fight scenes, and it’s bonkers in a way only an independent film can be.
“The sequel you did Nazi coming…”

Shinya Tsukamoto directed this wonderfully bizarre adaptation of Daijiro Morohoshi’s Yokai Hunter manga as his first studio project. Called to an idyllic countryside town, disgraced archaeologist Professor Hieda teams up with high schooler Masao when a series of disappearances – including those of Masao’s father and classmate crush Reiko – take place. Together, the unlikely duo discover that the local high school sits atop an ancient burial mound that may very well be a subterranean gateway to hell.
“School becomes a bizarre horror zone!”

“A whodunnit with teeth.”
When I first heard about this film I thought it was a sequel to The Slumber Party Massacre (1982). When I finally watched the rebooted Slumber Party Massacre, I was quite surprised but ultimately disappointed in this production. The film initially opens with a retro flashback of what happened 25 years earlier. A group of teenage girls travel to a cabin in the woods for a slumber party. They are having the time of their lives eating pizza, guzzling beers, you know, just the usual stuff! Unknowingly, driller killer Russ Thorn lurks outside, attacking and killing the girls one by one!
