From the producers of The House Of The Devil and Cheap Thrills, WE ARE STILL HERE is a tense, frightening, and thoroughly haunting ghost story with amazing effects and creatures. After their teenage son is killed in a car crash, Paul and Anne move to the New England countryside to try to start a new life. But the grieving couple unknowingly becomes the prey of a family of vengeful spirits that reside in their new home, and before long they discover that the seemingly peaceful town is hiding a terrifyingly dark secret. Now they must find a way to overcome their sorrow and fight back against both the living and dead as the malicious ghosts threaten to pull their souls – and the soul of their lost son – into hell with them.

"The movie never wants for scares. It might actually be the single most terrifying movie of 2015." - Andy Crump, Paste Magazine
"Think of it as an "unmake": an effort to make the new old again." - Charles Bramesco, Movie Mezzanine

MEAN GIRLS GOES ALL WITCHES!
Four high school girls discover the secret of witchcraft and band together to form a coven in this teen-oriented horror film. The girls' spells prove successful, but things go too far when they invoke an extremely powerful spirit that begins a cycle of destruction, ultimately turning the coven against itself.
"The smartest and most satisfying horror thriller to come out in a while." - Mick La Salle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Supernatural fun with attitude." - Kevin A. Ranson, MovieCrypt.com
"Imagine "The Lost Boys," only they're girls instead of boys ... and they're witches instead of vampires." - Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com

Fuelled by offbeat humour with lashings of action and gore Turbo Kid stars the iconic MICHAEL IRONSIDE (Starship Troopers, Scanners) as Zeus, MUNRO CHAMBERS (Degrassi - The Next Generation, Cracked) as The Kid, LAURENCE LEBOEUF (19-2, Trauma) as Apple, AARON JEFFERY (X-Men Origins) as Frederic, EDWIN WRIGHT (Top of the Lake) as Skeletron and ROMANO ORZARI (Omertà) as Bagu.
In a post-apocalyptic parallel future of 1997, an orphaned teenager called The Kid scavenges the Wasteland searching for relics from a better time (the 80s). During one of his expeditions he meets Apple, a mysterious girl with a rather large secret. As their relationship deepens, they accidentally run afoul of Zeus, the self-proclaimed leader of the Wasteland. Zeus, a sadistically droll maniac who murdered The Kid's parents, now controls the Wasteland's most precious commodity: fresh water. When Zeus' gang kidnaps Apple, The Kid joins forces with Frederick, the laconic leader of the legendary Arm-Wrestling Clan. Armed with little more than blind faith and an ancient turbo-charged weapon, The Kid must fulfill his ultimate destiny: destroy Zeus, avenge his parents' death and get the girl of his dreams.
"A pitch-perfect pastiche that never mocks its inspirations, the picture is silly fun to warm the hearts of aging fanboys and delight hipsters who weren't yet born the first time Mel Gibson donned Max's leathers." - John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"Perhaps the most colorful film ever made with a postapocalyptic setting, Turbo Kid is a loud, energetic homage to Eighties kitsch." - Laura Kern, Film Comment Magazine
