Ayla: See Dee Wallace and Tristan Risk in Teaser For Elias Ganster's New Flick

Screen Anarchy is happy to premiere the first teaser for Ayla, the new film from writer/director Elias Ganster (Gut).    Elton, a man haunted by the mysterious death of his 4-year-old sister, brings her back to life thirty years later as an adult woman, with dire consequences.    It is an interesting teaser, with hints of some body horror going on in there along with glimpses of the always fascinating Tristan Risk.

From companies like Marquee Pictures, Prism Leisure, Ilc Prime…

Review: Gut Is A Micro-Budget Button Pusher

Independent horror films are a dime a dozen, always have been. It's quite rare that something appears that is actually worth talking about. While most no-budget horror features spend their time ogling tits, and bits and pieces of viscera, Gut takes a decidedly more introspective route, and is all the more noteworthy for it. Gut eschews the notion that the only way to make anyone pay attention is to yell and instead makes the viewer think, fear, and ultimately makes them question their own motives in a similar way to films like Michael Haneke's Funny Games.
