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 inmates tunnel through the walls of a hellish prison, only to find something more terrifying than death row.


"Blown away by this one. Great cinematography, excellent building of suspense, and all under 10 minutes. I can't believe this is a first-time short for Gregory -- it was brilliant." -Programmer Macon Wilson


Director: This is the first short by Gregory Shultz. Gregory works in the Art Department in Los Angeles, California. He's from the Ozarks. A mountainous region of southern Missouri.
