    Culture Shock


    This is an absolutely unsettling, fantastic take on a complex subject. It is hard to say too much without spoiling the experience, but the film is wonderfully split by style and feel to tell the stories of two different worlds that ultimately collide. Really impressive filmmaking, and by far the most visionary and insightful of the Into the Darks that I have seen.

    Echoes of Fear


    Echoes of Fear is a great balance of smart, surprising, and accessible. It has very creepy sequences that are built around effective scares. And Trista Robinson is fantastic as the fearless protagonist in impossibly frightening situations!
