PORTALS
2019, 85 min, Dir: Gregg Hale, Liam O'Donnell, Eduardo Sánchez, Timo Tjahjanto

This striking sci-fi horror hybrid focuses on mysterious cosmic anomalies appearing across the world after a series of blackouts. Some attempt to flee these objects, others find themselves inexplicably drawn to them; no matter what the reaction, the end results are bloody, frightening, destructive and, most of all, brilliantly entertaining. Proving there’s still a lot of life left in the anthology format, PORTALS soars on the talents of several incredible directors, including the minds behind the V/H/S series and some of the last decade’s most amazing horror shorts and features.


SOUTHBOUND
2015, 87 min, USA, Dir: Roxanne Benjamin, David Bruckner, Patrick Horvath, Radio Silence

Produced by the team behind the successful V/H/S franchise, this anthology shocker features five dark, intertwining stories emanating from a desolate desert highway. Fan favorites Radio Silence return to prove yet again that a high concept can prove terrifying, while Roxanne Benjamin moves from producing to directing and shines in her debut, delivering a creepy tale of a band lost and found on this demonic road. David Bruckner (currently prepping the new FRIDAY THE 13TH film) delivers an absolutely ferocious tale that may keep you from driving ever again. The filmmakers all shared story ideas throughout production, creating unique worlds for each segment that mesh into an additive story - not since CREEPSHOW has the anthology format felt so fresh.
