The Eyes of Edward James
Rodrigo Gudino, Toronto, ON, Canada. Narrative Short/Horror 15 minutes

A suspense horror film in the tradition of Alfred Hitchcock, THE EYES OF EDWARD JAMES marks the directorial debut of Rue Morgue Magazine publisher Rodrigo Gudino. Edward is regressed into the traumatic memory of the evening that his wife, Sarah was brutally murdered. As his story unveils, however, it becomes apparent that what is seen through Edward's eyes is different from what his doctor believes is happening. With its terse, dual narrative structure and timed shocks, THE EYES OF EDWARD JAMES titillates with mounting suspense and original twists.

A woman lives her life believing, she is the most beautiful girl in her sureal world. She is consumed by her beauty and in the end it might destroy her. Starring Linnea Quigley (Return of the Living Dead) and Lloyd Kaufman (Troma Pictures).

Blood, Boobs & Beast
John Kinhart, Silver Spring, MD, USA, Documentary Feature, 75 minutes

New York City Premiere!

Blood, Boobs & Beast tells the compelling story of Don Dohler, whose movies have been called everything from oddly brilliant to some of the worst films of all time. Despite his critics, Dohler has gotten all nine of his sci-fi and horror films distributed internationally, as well as TV syndication for his first film, The Alien Factor. Dohler has also inspired artists and filmmakers such as Robert Crumb (Fritz the Cat), J.J. Abrams (Creator of TV show Lost) and Art Speigelman (Maus) with his underground comix character ProJunior, and his DIY filmmaking magazine, Cinemagic.
