That horror nerds are no more survival-savvy in genre-typical situations than others, is a truism Joel must learn the hard way. A silly coincidence tumbles him into a self-help group for serial killers, where he tries to blend in and act like one. Vicious Fun is a fast, agile piece of eightiesploitation that juggles visual and other clichés without becoming one itself. And when you’re watching more than a dozen psychopaths all located somewhere on the Voorhees-to-Lecter spectrum go hunting for a constantly skittish fan of synthetic blood and guts, you’re definitely in for some Vicious Fun. Gore galore!

STUCK
David Mikalson | US 2020 | 14’ | eOV

A creepy man takes an unhealthy interest in the young girls a gymnastics coach is teaching. When he goes too far, the coach has a unique solution.

NIGHT OF 1000 KNIVES
Get ready for the wildest night of the year! Four of the vilest, most wonderful, grisly, gory atrocities we could get our hands on, plus one quick act of beastly malice will rob you of your sleep. And remember: All who stay till the end will receive a coveted, extremely limited badge pin with original artwork.
