BASKIN

DIRECTOR: Can Evrenol - TURKEY

While en route to answer distress calls from a rural village, a small group of policemen find themselves diverted to investigate a mysterious figure that skitters out into the road in front of their van. Evrenol takes viewers on a ride to hell as his characters stumble upon a ceremony with dire consequences for all involved. “Baskin has cult midnight written all over it. It’s the kind of art house horror that becomes a household name among genre fans.”– Bloody Disgusting.com (97 mins.)

COZ OV MONI 2: FOKN REVENGE

DIRECTOR: King Luu - GHANA

Ghana’s most popular rap group, the FOKN Bois, star in what’s been called “the world’s 2nd 1st Pidgin musical.” One needs no knowledge of the first film to thoroughly enjoy the Bois’ screwball search for much food, love, and finally, revenge. The plot may be thin, but the humor-infused, incredibly catchy melodies keep this hip hop opera swimming along. “It looks great, it sounds fantastic, and it utterly defies its audience to not leave the room with a big ol’ smile plastered on after the final credits roll.” – Todd Brown, Twitch Film. (63 mins.)

DEMON

DIRECTOR: Marcin Wrona - POLAND

Things quickly get out of hand at a Polish wedding when the groom appears to have been possessed by a spirit from the past. Adapted from Piotr Rowicki’s 2008 stage play “Adherence,” Marcin Wrona’s final film is a ghost story that takes the Jewish myth of the dybbuk and commingles it with strong nods to Kubrick’s THE SHINING, including the use of a Penderecki score. “The thematics give DEMON meat, make it a great film, but it’s the filmmaking that makes DEMON a great movie to watch.” – Devin Faraci, Birth. Movies. Death. (94 mins.)

EVOLUTION

DIRECTOR: Lucile HadžIhalilovic - FRANCE

After diving below the waves surrounding his coastal village, a young boy claims to have seen the body of another child trapped in the coral reef. Bizarrely, there appears to be a starfish blooming from the belly button of the corpse. Eleven years after her last feature (Innocence), Hadžihalilovic (who co-authored Enter the Void with Gaspar Noé) returns with a dark, feminist fairytale peppered with stylistic nods to David Lynch and the body horror of David Cronenberg. (81 mins.)

THE INVITATION

DIRECTOR: Karyn Kusama - UNITED STATES

Will and Kira attend a dinner party hosted by Will’s ex-wife Eden in the secluded Hollywood home that they once shared. As the liquor flows, Eden and her new beau begin to proselytize about the new age philosophy they have embraced, leading their guests to assume that they’ve joined a cult. Old wounds are opened, opinions are challenged, and chaos soon ensues. “A serious slow burn that walks a carefully constructed line…and it mesmerizes through its frenzied conclusion.” —Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects (100 mins.)

LIZA THE FOX-FAIRY

DIRECTOR: Károly Ujj Mészáros - HUNGARY

Liza’s a lonely nurse whose search for a companion always ends in the same way— with the death of her suitor. Now the bodies are piling up and Liza, whose only friend is the ghost of a 1950s Japanese pop singer, is coming under the suspicion of a bumbling detective. Reminiscent of both Amélie and Takashi Miike’s The Happiness of the Katakuris, Mészáros blends whimsy, death, Japanese lore, and catchy pop songs into a delightfully dark cocktail. “Rarely has grisly death been packaged in such adorable wrapping.”—Film School Rejects. (98 mins.)

MAN VS. SNAKE

DIRECTOR: Andrew Seklir, Tim Kinzy - UNITED STATES

In 1983, Tim McVey claimed the highest score ever achieved on a classic video game. The game in question was Nibbler, an obscure title that allows for marathon sessions of 40+ hours. Now in his forties, and with his title bested by another player, Tim undertakes the challenge of reconquering the mountain that is Nibbler. “While MAN VS. SNAKE owes a certain thematic debt to THE KING OF KONG, it is its own film, one whose universal appeal should go beyond the ranks of video-game lovers to anyone who understands that primal need for greatness.” – Matt Singer, Screen Crush...

WHAT WE BECOME

DIRECTOR: Bo Mikkelsen - DENMARK

Idyllic suburban life is shattered when news spreads of a viral infection at a neighboring rest home. Soon enough, the military rolls in, placing the entire town under quarantine. As the virus spreads, the strictures of quiet family life begin to break down under the pressures of impending danger. Mikkelsen’s debut is a tense and clever take on the zombie genre and far more compelling than any season of The Walking Dead. “It’s the kind of noirish horror that is rapidly becoming extinct.” —Peter Martin, Twitch Film. (85 mins.)
