Proxy:

An unflinching and realistic look at the minds of diluted and depraved individuals. A slow burn that packs a serious punch in its subject matter. Not for the faint of heart.

Wer:

A lightly cloaked werewolf movie bringing the Wolfman into the modern age. A tightly woven storyline, with incredible scenery and special effects.

FilmDistrict

The Taking of Deborah Logan:

Do not let “found footage” and “possession” in this movie’s description deter interest. The Taking of Deborah Logan is an original take on a tired genre, the protagonist not an over-sexed teenager or a creepy little kid, but a proud, older woman in the uncontrollable throes of Alzheimer’s disease.What if this sickness is nothing more than a cover for something more sinister?
