A young African-American visits his white girlfriend's parents for the weekend, where his simmering uneasiness about their reception of him eventually reaches a boiling point.
A man wakes to find that he is trapped in a space so small he can barely move. Crippled by fear, disoriented, and unable to remember how he came to be in this deadly predicament, the protagonist attempts to find a way out. Forced to navigate over barbed wire and hold on for dear life to a rusty pipe using only his teeth, the man's pain and fear are powerfully played out in this top-notch addition to the Japanese horror tradition. Experimental in its application, this short film promises to make even the most hardened horror connoisseur cringe in suspense.

The haunted become the hunted. In this horror film set in Malaysia, a Japanese-American woman's recurring nightmare drives her to Pontianak on the island of Borneo where she thinks her dead birth mother is calling to her. Charity and three friends, plus a local guide, head for the jungle river but their all-terrain vehicle breaks down on the way and they are forced to trek through the jungle to find the river. Eye, the local guide, fully aware there are ghosts in the jungle, proceeds cautiously, but Charity and her friends have yet to be convinced these things really exist. When a woman mysteriously appears near an abandoned hut, an old man appears as well, and the trekkers helplessly watch as he beats her inside the hut. It is after this that the horror turns on Charity and her party, and the killings begin. The link between Charity's nightmares that sent her to Borneo and the horrors that visit the group is an unsolved mystery but hinted at as part redemption and part revenge.
