Attack Of The Face Melters – Jack is a lovable Comic geek that enjoys his Comics more than his girlfriend. Peril awaits when Jack’s Comic book comes to life. Written by Blake K. Swell and Directed by Tyler Weddle.
Sleep Tight – Bed bugs at the hotel snack on a body builder pumped full of steroids and grow to monstrous proportions terrorizing and attacking other guests at the seedy hotel. Directed by Ricky Hess and starring Jeremy Michael Grey.
