Shorts 3: Unexpected Terrors (After Dark)


  Mexico, Sweden, Turkey, United States     82 minutes


These six shorts spanning four countries show the real world is just as terrifying as the supernatural, highlighting how the uncanny and the unexpected can be found even in mundane situations.

A Black family whose land is overwhelmed with ghosts from the past must confront the apparitions in Inheritance (U.S.). A woman tries to flee from a sentient home that isn’t keen to let her get away in As If I Never Existed (Turkey). In The Last Marriage (Sweden), a couple must navigate serious relationship issues as a zombie apocalypse rages outside. A tattoo artist is confronted by a client who knows the meaning of his body art in Marked (U.S.). A supernatural entity shadows a thief named Manuel in Mexico City in The Last Supper (Mexico). In Thumb (U.S.), a woman sorting out her artist mother’s estate encounters an unexpected visitor who has shown up to claim an especially notorious piece.

Featuring works by Annalise Lockhart, Murat Emir Eren, Johan Tappert, Gustav Egerstedt, Matthew Avery Berg, Mitzi Sair Martinez, Alexandra Pechman.
