“Lucy’s life spirals out of control when her own mind turns against her and her nightmares become her daymares.”

Aspiring actress Lucy finds her life crippled by intense migraines while taking a strong painkillers provided by her housemate Sara. The headaches develop into terrifying visions of friends and strangers repeatedly killing her. When her ghostly inner self follows her into the real world, Lucy pops more of pills, desperate to shake it. A doctor attributes her worsening condition to exhaustion, despite a history of family schizophrenia. Lucy endures an endless cycle of murders, every time waking up seconds later.

Director: Josh Marble

Taking the Fall poster.jpg

Tyler returns from a six year prison sentence for a surprise reunion with his former college friends to discover that they've all veered off course under the pressure of millennial culture. Weighed down by the combination of college debt, hefty living costs, and the dawn of social media, this generation is overworked, underpaid, and quite simply: stuck. 

Tyler (28) has also been stuck: stuck in prison. To give his closest friends a chance to fulfill their dreams, Tyler “took the fall” for a college party that got too out of hand. The bigger surprise to Tyler, however, is how distant the group has grown and how much each individual has changed. Over the course of a tense dinner party, Tyler tries to come to terms with their constant complaining, sense of entitlement, and downright angst as he can’t believe how far off-course they’ve all veered under societal pressure. 

Being imprisoned in your mind and literally being in prison might not be as far from one another as we think, or are we simply trained to take our freedom for granted, our own willpower and ability to make conscious decisions for granted

Alien Addiction follows Riko (Jimi Jackson) who lives in a small town in the middle of nowhere (Waikato, New Zealand). Life was pretty normal until two aliens crash landed near Riko’s house. He welcomes the aliens and together they develop an intergalactic relationship of epic proportions. Alientologist Peter Mackintosh (Thomas Sainsbury) has tracked the aliens and Riko, and plans to capture them and reveal them to the world.

“Alien Addiction had me laughing all the way through its duration. Great dialogue, acting and good old kiwi humor make this Sci-Fi comedy a must watch” ~ Imdb Review

“It’s everything you want from a sci-fi comedy film, funny as hell and far fetched to be interesting. What stands out the most is the comedic style of the actors and how the director used the surrounding areas as backdrops. The sex scene leaves you to falling of the chair laughing” ~ Imdb Review
