Director: Steven Sheil
“ A luckless Polish cleaner ends up captive with a decidedly strange family in this lean, stark, and at times blackly comic horror.

Director: Marian Dora
“ Marian Dora's disturbing account of real life cannibal Armin Mewes who found a willing victim on the internet, won't be to everyone's tastes, but it's one of the most starkly effective extreme horrors out there, with weird, slightly off kilter shots only adding to the nightmarish tone. 8/10, nasty but decent offering. ” - Corpus_Vile
