The Damned Thing
Adapted by Jeff G. Rack
Directed by Sebastian Munoz
From the short story of the same name by Ambrose Bierce, 1893
A man is part of an investigation into his own mysterious and brutal death. When the dead man’s friend becomes a suspect in his murder, he uses his newfound spirit powers to discover who – or what – really killed him.
Featuring John T. Cogan, Ian Heath, and Michael Prichard.
By Jonathan Josephson
Directed by Darin Anthony
Inspired by the Egyptian legend “The Book of Thoth”
Set in 1972 Altadena, three adventurers and their sidekicks are on the hunt for one of the most sought after artifacts of ancient history – The Book of Thoth. The Book is said to grant the reader magical abilities and limitless power. As the adventuring pairs pursue the Book, deeply kept secrets and painful lies are revealed as an offbeat archaeological expedition becomes a race between life and death.
Featuring Dan Billet, Joe Camareno, Kevin Dulude, Sawyer Fuller, LizAnne Keigley, David Ty Reza and Morgan Zenith.
The Open Door
Adapted by Kirsten Brandt
Directed by Paul Millet
From the short story of the same name by Margaret Oliphant, 1881
Modern reason clashes with the occult in this classic ghost story thriller. It’ll take a village to get to the bottom of the nefarious happenings taking place in the abandoned ruins, and with a young boy’s life in the balance, there is no time to waste.
Featuring Bradley Bundlie, John Patrick Daly, Jena Hunt, Richard Large, Michael Perl, Brian David Pope and Tessa Willshire
