Deceased - Fearless Undead Machines






Bolt Thrower - Mercenary







Slither

R2 Spain




A mysterious meteor infected with a deadly alien plague brings chaos to a small hunting town in the feature-length directorial debut of screenwriter James Gunn (Scooby-Doo, Dawn of the Dead). Booted out of bed by his young, trophy-wife Starla (Elizabeth Banks), and in desperate need of some female companionship, wealthy Grant Grant (Michael Rooker) picks up bar local floozy Brenda (Brenda James) and heads into the woods for a hedonistic night of extramarital excitement. When a flaming meteor lights up the sky before crashing to the ground nearby, Grant's curiosity gets the best of him and he sets out to find the space rock. Subsequently infected with a rampaging space virus, which he passes along to Brenda, Grant transforms into a horrific, cow-munching monster and begins terrorizing the town. As thousands of squirmy space slugs burrow into the brains of the unsuspecting Wheelsy denizens creating an ever-amassing horde of mindless space zombies, panic grips the small town and it's up to Starla, Sheriff Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion), and gung-ho mayor Jack MacReady (Gregg Henry) to put an end to the infection and save the planet.

Sky High

R2 France






From Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamara (Versus, Azumi) comes this supernatural tale of grief and vengeance based on the popular manga by author Tsutomu Takahashi. When Detective Kanzaki Kohei's (Shosuke Tanihara) wife, Mina, is brutally murdered, his mourning soon gives way to rage and his search for the killer turns into an all-consuming obsession. Faced with the choice of ascending, languishing, or descending when she arrives at the Gate of Hatred in the afterlife, Mina is given 12 days to choose her ultimate fate. As Mina struggles to come to terms with her death, she follows both her husband and the serial killer, who is attempting to resurrect the Lord of Darkness by committing a series of horrific ritual murders. Will Mina accept death and move on toward reincarnation, become a ghost that will forever haunt the living, or sacrifice her soul for eternity by seeking vengeance on her killer?
