sunken_conventTHE SUNKEN CONVENT: A man wakes up, he goes to work, he eats in, he does a bit of home surgery, he drives to the woods. Told without words and loosely inspired by the tale by Hans Christian Andersen, ‘The Sunken Convent’ is a grotesque and slightly surreal story of bad habits.

 

 

kumalKUMAL: A gruesome encounter between two friends, Tom and Charlie, and a not-so-great blast from their past.

 

 

 

ratsRATS: What better way to impress a girl than to have a night alone with the run of a castle? Only Bill and Jess aren’t quite alone. There are scratching noises from the room next door, and the sense that someone, or something, is watching.

 

 

 

hypogeumHYPOGEUM: Celebrating the spirit and aesthetics of a certain pulpy genre of Italian ’70s cinema, the story begins with two troubled lovers fighting during their journey into an unknown town, where they end up in an empty inn served by two unsettling waitresses. The place hides something dark, nourishing of their bad blood, transfiguring their feelings, attracting them in the darkness of its underground: this is the beginning of the descent into Hypogeum.

 

polterheistPOLTERHEIST: Two small time criminals kidnap a psychic medium and force her to contact the gang boss they murdered. The pair are desperate to discover where their recently deceased boss buried a stash of cash, but only succeed in unleashing a demon, bent on revenge.

 

 

narcissus_poster_englishNARCISSUS: Millennia after Narcissus drowned, we are still transfixed by our own reflection. And like Narcissus, our obsession with our own self-image will be the end of us.
