HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN
2011, Magnet Releasing, 86 min, Dir: Jason Eisener

A train pulls into the station – it’s the end of the line. A hobo (Rutger Hauer) jumps from a freight car hoping for a fresh start in a new city. Instead, he finds himself trapped in an urban hell. Amidst the chaos, the hobo comes across a pawn shop window displaying a secondhand lawn mower. He dreams of making the city a beautiful place and starting a new life for himself. But as the brutality continues to rage around him, he notices a shotgun hanging above the lawn mower. Quickly, he realizes the only way to make a difference in this town is with that gun in his hand and two shells in its chamber...


CHILD'S PLAY
1988, Park Circus/MGM, 87 min, USA, Dir: Tom Holland

Andy Barclay has a new playmate who’s in no mood to play. Young Andy is thrilled to get the hottest new toy - until he learns his doll is possessed by the spirit of a psychotic criminal! Can Andy convince the adults in his life that “Chucky” (voiced by an exceptionally creepy Brad Dourif) is out to get him before it's too late? Chris Sarandon and Catherine Hicks star in this horror classic which spawned an entire Chucky franchise, and which does double duty as a shrewd satire on consumerism and its effect on children.


SATANIC PANIC
2019, Cinestate, 85 min, USA, Dir: Chelsea Stardust

Times are tough for Sam. Already a cancer survivor at twenty-two, she eeks out a meager existence delivering pizza for minimum wage - and minimum tips - while dealing with an exploitative boss and obnoxious coworkers. When the final delivery of the night promises to take her to a wealthy neighborhood with the chance of a healthy tip, she takes the opportunity to make up for an unprofitable shift. What begins as a quest for cash ends up as a quest for survival, though, when it turns out her customers aren’t who she’s used to delivering to. Instead, they’re a Satanic cult of a very different color: high-society elites for whom worshipping the Dark Lord coexists with country clubs and casseroles.
