When the reel becomes real.

Dark Reel (1:44:00) - 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! - Blu-ray Signing!
After his girlfriend leaves him, lonely horror movie buff Adam Waltz (Edward Furlong- Terminator 2, America History X, Detroit Rock City)  to Los Angeles to be closer to her. There he lands a walk-on role in studio chief Connor Pritchett's (Lance Henriksen- Aliens, Millennium, Pumpkinhead) latest cinematic schlockfest, Pirate Wench. One night, a killer starts stalking the set, and before long bodies are piling up. On the downside, it wreaks havoc with the film's budget. On the upside, Adam's part keeps getting bigger and bigger. With ace police detectives Shields (Tony Todd- Candyman, Platoon) LaRue (Rena Riffel- Showgirls, Mulholland Dr) the case, everyone hopes the mystery will be solved quickly. But when Adam begins seeing the ghost of an actress who died fifty years ago, there may be more to this serial killing spree than a psycho with a taste for torture. Several cast members will be attending the screening

Inner Balance – (7:43) A man is tied up in a mysterious symmetrical house with two precisely even cuts on both sides of his face and no idea how he got there. Why is everything in the house in perfect symmetry and who are there two mystery figures all in green watching him. Who is this mysterious Mike Matoonk  (played by Dana Ashbrook- Bobby Briggs  of Twin Peaks fame) who is charge of this place and needs certain information from his captured victim. What is with the multiple evenly placed bottled of orange juice placed throughout the house and why is the house in the middle of the desert with not another soul or structure in sight? Could this short 7 minute film also be a prelude a to bigger story?

Making of Gnome Killer 2 (14:00) A mockumentary based on the fictional Gnome Killer series as seen in Dark Reel. Takes place 2 years after the events in Dark Reel.
