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!!!!

What happens when the line between awake and asleep blurs?


It will take me longer to write this, and perhaps you longer to read it, then it will take either of us to watch Louisa Phung's 1-minute microshort about that period between sleep and wakefulness. Just don't let it creep into YOUR dreams! -Miguel
