WINTERBEAST: Weird things are happening in and around the Wild Goose Lodge, a snowy inn located in rural Massachusetts. People are being found dead and mutilated, while others are vanishing without a trace. Realizing that the violence might have something to do with Native American black magic and the ancient secrets of the area's historic totem poles, a trio of cops decide to investigate the goings on, and are faced with an array of monsters, ghouls, and even a sampling of murderous locals!
A film which truly justifies the term 'unclassifiable,' and the sole feature from writer and director Christopher Thies, WINTERBEAST was shot on and off for nearly half a decade and in a mix of super 8mm and 16mm, resulting in a one of a kind piece of outsider art horror filmmaking that must be seen to be believed. Loaded with surreal dialogue, mind-blowing stop motion animation, homemade gore effects, and more than a few genuinely creepy moments.
DON'T PANIC: A bonkers tribute to A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET from Mexican horror king Rubén Galindo Jr. (CEMETERY OF TERROR, GRAVE ROBBERS), DON'T PANIC is a surreal and action-packed rager that’s guaranteed to leave audiences awestruck and dumbfounded. It's Michael's (Jon Michael Bischof, who also performs the film's memorable theme song) seventeenth birthday. His friends have decided to surprise him with the ultimate gift: breaking into his house and playing with a Ouija board! But this harmless fun quickly transforms into a supernatural terror, as newly-summoned demon Virgil possesses and murders Michael’s friends! Defying reality at every turn, DON’T PANIC is an awe-inspiring 1980s horror classic, now newly restored from the original 35mm camera negative.
