The Florida Premiere of Lake Bodom: A smart, slick, savage slasher in the gushing vein of Scream and Cabin in the Woods, Lake Bodom riffs on a notorious real-life Finnish murder still unsolved almost six decades later. Every camper’s worst nightmare came true at Lake Bodom in 1960 when four teenagers were stabbed to death while sleeping in their tent. The unsolved mystery turned into an urban legend, a creepy campfire story passed from generation to generation. Now, a group of teenagers arrives at the same campsite, hoping to solve the murder by reconstructing it minute by minute. As night falls, turns out not all of them are there to play. Tonight…it’s girls against boys. Let the killing games begin! Preceded by the Florida Premiere of the short film Couples Night – A couple’s night goes off the rails when one couple reveals they’re blood sacrificing devil worshippers. And then things get weird… The Florida Premiere of Super Dark Times: An incinerating and strangely dream-like teenage nightmare with shades of everything from Donnie Darko, Stand By Me, and Stranger Things. Set in the leafy American suburbs of the early 1990s – a time before the internet, cellphones, and social media – a group of best friends live in the mundane world of bike rides, after school snacks, and video games. But in an instant, everything changes. An innocent lark in the park takes an abrupt and violent turn when an accident results in a gruesome death. With vivid imagination and surreal imagery, we see the darkening of innocence and adolescence as a once simple world turns into a twilight zone of nightmares and brutality. Preceded by the short film Neck and Neck – Inspired by Shakespeare’s Othello, this animated short presents a dark surreal take on the relationship between the deceived Othello, the innocent Desdemona, and the mendacious Iago. The Florida Premiere of Happy Hunting: A gory thrill ride that falls midway between Deliverance and Surviving the Game. An alcoholic degenerate drifter becomes stranded in a one-horse town deep in the American desert. It turns out that the town’s psychotic rednecks celebrate a gory pastime rounding up drifters and hunting them for sport. It all leads to a blood-soaked, live-or-die showdown that’s one of the meanest, most nihilistic pieces of American genre cinema. Preceded by the Florida Premiere of the short film 2 a.m. – A man awakens in an unusual asylum when supernatural events begin to unfold right in front of OUR eyes.
