Seventh Moon Synopsis
Quote: Seventh Moon “will send chills down your spine…” (Dread Central.com). Director Eduardo Sanchez, winner of the 1999 Cannes Film Festival Award of Youth for The Blair Witch Project, “returns with a brilliantly conceived and executed supernatural thriller” (Fantastic Fest). According to an ancient Chinese myth, on the full moon of the seventh lunar month, the gates of hell open and the dead are freed to roam among the living. While honeymooning in China, a young newlywed couple takes part in a sacred event that honors these spirits. Unfortunately their enthusiasm borders on mockery and their disagreeable charm ends in angry glances among the locals. As night falls, their tour guide abandons them in a desolate field. What they thought was a joke is becoming far too real as they fight to survive the night of the Seventh Moon.
Quote: They Hunt in Packs. They Feed on Flesh. They prey on innocence. †They are back with a vengeance and an insatiable appetite for human flesh. Their time has come – again. Based on the acclaimed novel and adapted for the screen by bestselling author Jack Ketchum, Offspring follows the survivors of a brutal flesh-eating clan that has re-surfaced in the once sleepy town of Dead River, Maine. †The locals are in for a rude awakening when they realize it’s the same pack that the sheriff thought he killed off a decade ago. †Just when they thought the nightmare was over, they’re about to discover that the fight for their lives has only just begun. The film was included in the Fangoria Weekend of Horror and Rue Morgue’s Festival of Fear.
The Thaw Synopsis
Quote: Val Kilmer (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) stars as a renowned environmental advocate, Dr. David Kruipen, who discovers the real horror of global warming in the frightening new film The Thaw. When Dr. Kruipen discovers the carcass of a woolly mammoth in a polar ice cap, he helms a team of four bright ecology students and leads them in a research mission at a remote Arctic station. The group uncovers information beyond their wildest dreams…and nightmares…when a pre-historic parasite revives and searches for a new warm-blooded host. Now, infected, the unsuspecting students are forced to choose between a quarantine that will result in their burial ground or a global epidemic.
The Children Synopsis
Quote: You brought them into the world. They will take you out. A family anticipates a Christmas filled with sledding, laughter and hot cocoa as they head to their vacation home in the secluded backcountry. The holiday cheer takes a fast turn for the worst after a mysterious flu-like virus sweeps through the kids. One by one the children become deadly. Amidst the suspicion, mayhem and murder, the parents must fight for survival against their own twisted offspring. The Children was declared “relentless, primal horror” (Guardian), a “taboo shattering movie” (Time Out), “Village of the Damned for the 21st Century” (IGN.com) and Steve Niles, author of the graphic novel 30 Days of Night says, “I will never go near a playground again!”
