Framed – On Alex’s farewell party with his friends, three strange invaders will kidnap them with the
only goal of playing twisted mortal games while they stream it, turning all this insane torture into a viral
show. Framed brings together the most common classic horror-film features (with an eye on “home
invasion movies”) with the unstoppable rise of the newest social media networks. A trend that’s changing the
society and especially the way we relate to others. Framed is a dark glimpse with touches of black
humor into this excess and overuse of social media by a part of society totally abandoned to viralness.
I’ll Take Your Dead – Followed by a Q&A with director Chad Archibald. William has a simple job: he
makes dead bodies disappear. This isn’t something he likes to or even wants to do, but through

the casualties of the gang-related murders in the nearby city. His daughter Gloria has become used to
rough looking men dropping off corpses and is even convinced that some of them are haunting their
house. After a woman’s body is dumped at the house, William begins his meticulous process when he
realizes she’s not actually dead. As the gang activity increases, William patches the woman up and
holds her against her will until he can figure out what to do. As they begin to develop very unusual
respect for each other, the woman’s murderers get word that she’s still alive and make a plan to go finish
what they started.
The Bray Road Beast – In their seventh film, Small Town Monsters takes you on an in-depth
exploration of the real-life werewolf/dogman phenomenon, which spans from the eerie back roads of
Wisconsin to the fields and villages of Europe where sightings of upright canids date back centuries. Is
there more to these sightings than simple misidentifications of known animals or a hidden species of
the wolf? Join director Seth Breedlove and narrator Lyle Blackburn as they explore the possibilities in this
award-winning documentary feature film. Followed by a Q&A with Lyle Blackburn
Arrow Video presents all new restorations of three classic films!
