BLISS
2019, 80 min, Dir: Joe Begos

Dora Madison does a star turn as Dezzy, an artist who has lost her muse and is on the way to losing her agent, her apartment and her career ... until her dealer gives her a hit of bliss, a new drug on the street. After a dose, she spends the night getting wrecked and hooking up in threesomes, and awakes the next day with renewed inspiration to paint. Convinced she has a thirst for blood, her craving for the drug escalates, as does her creative output; her masterpiece takes shape while she herself spirals out of control. Shooting on 16mm, guerrilla-style, Begos achieves the kind of grit and dirt exemplified in DRILLER KILLER and MANIAC with an absolutely unrelenting shotgun-to-the-face of a film.


MADMAN
1981, 88 min, Dir: Joe Giannone

At most summer camps, there is always a legendary campfire tale that gets passed down from camper to camper; but in the case of Madman Marz, there is truth to the story. When a group of snot-nosed campers decides to mock the folklore murderer, the backwoods barbarian answers the call with the vicious whack of his ax. Butchering counselors left and right, MADMAN mixes FRIDAY THE 13TH-style slaughter with the hillbilly horror of DELIVERANCE with grisly results.


GIRL ON THE THIRD FLOOR
2019, 93 min, Dir: Travis Stevens

Travis Stevens has been producing genre films for over 20 years; his grand and gruesome directorial debut is a gooey haunted-house tale dripping with atmosphere and boasting incredible practical VFX. WWE superstar-turned-leading man CM Punk stars as Don Koch, a family man with a fair share of skeletons in his closet, who has purchased a rundown mansion, which he plans to renovate before moving his heavily pregnant wife in. However, the mansion harbors a few skeletons of its own. When a flirty neighborhood woman starts dropping by unannounced, Don must contend with his conscience, all the while tearing apart a house that seems intent on returning the favor.
