When it comes right down to it, for my own personal tastes, monsters rule the roost. Monsters are the source of my love for the genre, they are the characters I most immediately empathize with, and they always will have a segment in my festival. Beyond that, though, monsters serve one of the greatest purposes in horror storytelling: they serve to explain the unknown, give face to our fear, and find some order in chaos. More than that, since monsters are not real (sorry), they are so well suited to metaphor and interpretation, a key characteristic that lends a layer of depth that one can take or leave. Here there be monsters!!!!

Two friends looking to unwind find themselves on the path of an unusual neighbor.

"LOVED THIS. This is some of the BEST nonchalant performances I've seen in a long time. It's a film with such a simple and believable flow that you forget its supposed to become a horror film eventually. By the time the ending was revealed, I was caught off guard. I really wanted to spend some more time with theses two dudes as they talked about weekend music uploads and the trouble of a 12 hour shift. Good little short." -Sterling Anno

Director: Jason Morillo - From an early age, Jason has always wanted to direct and create. His absolute passion for film, television, animation and games - along with his thirst for knowledge - is a driving force in all of his creative goals.

Early in his career, Jason hit the ground running and has worked on everything from directing music videos and short films, to fully producing and editing nationally-syndicated TV shows and has even completed his first internationally distributed, full-length feature film (Error in the Menage) which he wrote, directed, and edited. Several of his films have made it to film festivals such as Gasparilla, Tampa Bay Underground, and Cenflo.

Jason currently produces episodic streaming content and also has some personal film projects in the works.
