The Dunwich Horrors (Shorts Program)
Run Time: 87 min.
Brace yourself for Dunwich Horrors, our newest collection of “homegrown” horror, and leave your delicate sensibilities behind. We’ve assembled a mind-flaying array of New England-created bursts of terror designed to delight, disturb, and devastate. From the quaint townships of Vermont, to the deep forests of Maine, no space is safe from the horrific visions conjured by our intrepid regional creators.
Our latest installment is a cavalcade of insatiable beasts, skulking apparitions, and fractured families, representing the isolation, confinement, and frustration churning in this era of what-the-fuckery. Witness fratricide, cannibalism, demon birth, mutation, and other ghastly occurrences–a cinematic primal scream shattering you to the core. Be warned: once you’ve been exposed to the dark underbelly of the nor’east, you’re forever tainted.
