SLAXX tells the story of a possessed pair of jeans brought to life to punish the unscrupulous practices of a trendy clothing company. Shipped to the company’s flagship store, Slaxx proceeds to wreak bloody carnage on the staff that is locked in overnight to set up the new collection. When the body count mounts, the panicked staff disbands and the struggle for survival begins. It is up to new-hire Libby to uncover the reason behind Slaxx’s blood thirst before the store opens and its evil is released into the world.

“Creative, original and gory as hell, Slaxx is a perfect fit.”

Go in the Wilderness tells the story of Lilith, Adam’s rebellious first mate, and her guardian, as they forge an uneasy alliance on their journey back to Eden. Once in the Garden, they meet Adam and his new mate Eve, and realise that all is not as it seems in Paradise... Shot against the striking backdrop of Quebec’s remote North Shore, Go in the Wilderness presents a bold new version of the myth of Creation.

“Go in the Wilderness offers a seductive and daring interpretation of the Holy Scriptures.”

“Audacious, surprising, fantastical and absurd.... ... very impressive visually... loaded with mythic Girl Power!”
