We Might Hurt Each Other is described as the first slasher movie to come out of Lithuania. In the film, a group of teenagers celebrate their recent graduation at a cabin in the woods that happens to be the location where a man once slaughtered his own family. With a classic setup and the promise of brutal slayings, We Might Hurt Each Other appears to be a must-watch for slasher fans.

Shoky & Morthy: Last Big Thing is a goofy comedy about two friends whose successful YouTube channel goes bust after a poorly received video. They decide to embark on one final project before severing their partnership, a video of a supernatural investigation on the site of a massacre called The Nine Crosses.
Exclusive – Coming July 25
Repulse is an unnerving look at the abuse and violence within two dysfunctional families. The story is told out of chronological order, doling out information in ways that keep viewers tense throughout the entire disturbing proceedings.
