QUEER HORROR SHORTS

Wednesday | October 3 | 7:30 pm

October is a month of thrills and terrors and masked desires. Start it off with this collection of pulse-pounding queer horror shorts that go bump in the night!

INSTINCT (Dir. Maria Alice Arida) 
A lonely gallery owner meets a dangerously seductive performance artist, discovering they share more in common than expected.

GRIP (Dir. Bryan Louie)
A recovering meth addict is haunted by his enabling ex-boyfriend’s incessant calls, and the corpse-like hands trying to grab him.

SECRET EATER (Dir. Jensen Rule Tierra & Shaun Johnson)
A young man becomes enamored with his hands in this highly campy, expressionist examination of twisted psychology.

SINGULARITY (Dir. Vera Miao)
A trans woman entranced with a bio-hacking movement that merges human with machine begins to see dozens of shadows following her every move…

VACATION RENTAL (Dir. Matt Newton)
A couple’s perfect, romantic getaway in Palm Springs takes a turn for the creepy – and then deadly.

LOVE IN THE LAST FIVE DAYS (Dir. Michael Blieden)
In the outset of a zombie apocalypse amidst a violent mutation of toxoplasmosis, two women struggle to keep the spark in their relationship alive.
