Let's be real: you really can't have a complete horror program without the slasher, the killer, the villain, or people just plain behaving badly. This group of short films runs the gamut from hilarious hi-jinks to creeping terror to films that somehow provide both in equal measure. There is an age-old horror debate about creature feature scares versus more "realistic" human evil scares. It is a debate I care little for since both serve a purpose (though I will always admit to loving the monsters)!

A woman haunted by her OCD and intrusive thoughts must overcome herself and face her inner demons to survive the night in the event of a terrifying home invasion by three masked slashers.

It takes some special gall to tell the story of mental wellness through the veneer of a post-millennial slasher, but Elwood Walker pulls it off with both familiar style and genuine chills! -Miguel

"I yelled 'No!' at the screen more than once, which is about the best compliment I can give!" -Programmer Laila Ayad
