A Deadly Education

When she was nine El (shot for Galadriel, think the "all shall love me and despair" version) was prophesised to destroy the world. Now she is in her second last year at a magical school that wants to kill her, she can't write an essay without inventing a spell to enslave minds, and worst of all, everyone's favourite heroic wizard-boy Owen Lake has just saved her life for the second time.

Splatter Capital

The tagline for Splatter Capital promises “a guide for surviving the horror movie we collectively inhabit” but really it is a breakdown of how splatter horror can act as a Marxist representation of life under capitalism – where bodies are dismembered and consumed by the more fortunate for the sake of maintaining production. It also poses that splatter horror can present a cathartic alternative, where the disenfranchised are able to rise up and literally “eat the rich”.

Sorry to Bother You

Cassius "Cash" Green (Lakeith Stanfield) needs a job, and soon - his car is barely running and he's four months late on rent, the rent that keeps his uncle, Sergio (Terry Crews), with a roof over his family's head, so when he gets a job with telemarketing agency RegelView it seems like all his dreams have come true. Except they don't pay except on commission. When Cash is offered a promotion the day he and his friends organise a strike, he must work out just how far he will go, and just how much it can cost to keep above the breadline.

We Sold Our Souls

After Kris' ex-bandmate Terry sold out to become The Blind King she's been working in a dead-end job in a dead-end town. But then The Blind King comes back for one last tour, and this time Kris might just be able to bring him down, but first she has to get the band back together. In another dead-end town, Melanie clings onto the hope that The Blind King has given her, and his new show has given her the kick she needs to finally get out of the place. Part road-trip, part zombie movie, all metal.
