The Soul Trader

Coral Chase isn’t your typical assassin.

She’s the only one in the world with the power to steal souls from the young which she sells to elderly elites so they can extend their lives.

She’s cornered the market for years.

But after a lifetime of servicing the sick whims of the wealthy, Coral is done.

One last big hit and she’s over and out, and able to retire with her 12-year-old son and blend into normality somewhere warm and safe.

With a new target acquired at a hefty price tag, she embarks on her final ‘soul tapping’ mission. But there’s a snag. The target is not alone…and Coral isn’t the only one in the apartment with murder in mind

Code Blue: A Love Story

James was the product of a stressed-out single mom and a bad attitude. He was also a virgin.

Enter Marla, the gossipy coed-for James it was love at first booze-tinged kiss.

But as first sexual experiences can go, James’ was fast—and Marla lived up to her reputation as a gossip.

However, in the first few moments of James and Marla’s tryst there was also connection–one that James longed for.

Alas, Marla’s life comes to an untimely end.

And for most young lovers Marla’s death would’ve been the end of the story, but not for our James, who follows Marla to the brink of the grave intention reigniting that feeling and consummating their love

Punk's Not Dead

Punk’s Not Dead is more than just a tribute documentary.

It takes you on an era-by-era journey that puts punk rock’s non-conformist reputation under the knife.

The directorial debut from one-time punk photographer Susan Dynner, Punk’s Not Dead follows the evolution of punk music from its anarchic roots to its use as a corporate marketing tool and acceptance into popular culture, to its reinvention in today’s underground scene.

Officially sanctioned by the bands in the documentary who donated personal photos, fliers and home videos, it boasts interviews withMinor Threat, Bad Religion, Rancid, UK Subs, Green Day, Social Distortion, Black Flag and many more.

Punk’s Not Dead combines intelligent, insightful commentary with live performances, behind-the-scenes anecdotes, and a killer soundtrack.

Credits

Brick

Set in high school yet stylized like an old detective movie, this intriguing film follows our hero/detective character Brendan — a high school student who prefers to steer clear of the cliques and crowds and their wild shenanigans.

That is until his ex-girlfriend Emily is found dead in a storm drain only 2 days after receiving a frantic and confusing call from her on a payphone.

Determined to find out what happened to her, Brendan, along with school genius “Brain”, must sift through the upper-class elite of the high school students including the jocks, stoners and seductive drama students.

As they do so Brendan discovers that Emily’s death is linked to something darker and far more serious than they could have imagined

After Porn Ends

After Porn Ends is a documentary that not only examines the lives and careers of some of the biggest names in the history of the adult entertainment industry but what happens to them after they leave the business and try and live the “normal” lives that millions of other Americans enjoy.

They hailed from the rural South, steel towns, and the SanFernando Valley. As teenagers and young adults, none of them thought that porn was in their future. They were artists, baseball players, child prodigies, and even Ivy Leaguers.

Now, after their lives in porn, they’re TV stars, bounty hunters, writers, and social activists. What happened in between? And, now that they’ve moved on, can they really live a normal life after porn?
