Union of the Snake Written by: Jason Harris

When two folklorists join a DEA agent to head to the Everglades to investigate cases of missing children and a mysterious snake cult, they discover more than the slithering horror of the river of grass.

When Babies Cry Written by: Mary Beth Holland

Ghosts of Christmas Past Written by: Margaret McCarley

A reluctant stepmother must save her new kids from the malevolent spirits in the haunted Christmas house next door. Inspired by actual events. Decades after the gruesome Christmas 1956 murder of a family, a woman moves in next door to the murder scene along with her new husband and two hateful stepchildren. The stepchildren soon become friends with two kids from the neighborhood…the two children who were murdered next door almost sixty years earlier. When these ghosts lure the stepkids in to their yuletide freak show fun house, the reluctant stepmother is forced to battle the evil, vengeful ghouls to save her family.

The Inn final Written by: Josh Lee

Unknowing criminals run afoul of the law to an inn run by malevolent witches.

The Nightmare Written by: Paul Punzo

A young girl is captured and held hostage by a ghoul who reveals himself to be her father haunted by his mental illness.

Mindseye Written by: Paul Bianchi

After being drugged and kidnapped, Mel and her friends find themselves unwilling models in a series of fatal art installations and at the mercy of a trio of sadistic artists.
