Creeping madness, treacherous misfortune, bloodthirsty romance and familial curse looms large within this psychologically involving offering.
These films share a common theme; that of the exploitation of vulnerability, either through circumstance or purposeful ill will. The programme explores the varied manifestations of this narrative archetype and its unfortunate and sometimes grisly repercussions. Each of these shorts tears at the boundaries of horror themes and motifs, to create an entirely original and cerebral viewing experience.
