Starting off with an effort to replicate the grindhouse use of "coming attractions," complete with grainy, scratched film, we expect the cheesiness to continue as the feature is not one, but nine separate horror shorts.
I am sure everyone will find their favorites in the collection, but I was particularly impressed by "Alone" with Mandy Amano as a sorority girl alone in the house with a killer on the loose. The sets and costuming were excellent and really gave a 50s feel to the story. It had a nice twist at the end.
"Mental Distortion" with Kim Sønderholm, who also wrote and directed this short, as well as the first one shown (When John Met Julia) stars with Maja Muhlack and the voluptuous Danish model Barbara Zatler. The story is really open to multiple interpretations, and I am sure each viewer will have their own.
"Disconnected" is the story of bloody brutality, but it is the twist that will have your mouth dropping open - totally unexpected.
Those are my three favorites, but the other six shorts are just as interesting and others are left to find theirs.
