Log Line: Chloe and Joe are on the run after participating in a drug induced murder. They find themselves hiding out at a relative's house, (the Looneys) and quickly become tangled in disturbing/ murderous behavior that seems to run in the family, all the while trying to remain hidden from the law.

Synopsis: Welcome to the Looney Bin! What do you get when you mix awkward family dysfunction, latex gloves, and peanut butter? The Looney family from the award winning film "A Grim Becoming" is back and they're leaving a trail of murderous destruction in a way that only the Looney's can. Following the death of their son Lance, the Looney's find a way to release their pent up anguish by inflicting pain on others in this twisted dark comedy about murder, family, and unique new ways to use peanut butter. As they spiral further into their warped world, no one is safe...not even family.



S.T.A.R (Space Traveling Alien Reject) revolves around the once famous, award-winning writer Greg Vincent who is now a down on his luck, struggling alcoholic. Looking for inspiration for what he hopes will be his big comeback story, Greg ventures to the small town of Metsburgh. Along with revitalizing his career, he hopes that he can sell the story to get some much needed cash to pay off his debts to crime lord Angelia Branco. Enter STAR, an on-the-run alien fleeing certain death from the hideous Meroarks on his home planet of Mars. Greg encounters this blue, oddly shaped, wise-guy alien after they find themselves hiding in the same cabin. With a deadline given by the mob and an alien race hot on STAR's trail, who will be able to save them? Will it be Alex Creed? The star of such grindhouse films as Devon Danger vs. the Atomic Space Zombies. Or maybe Marissa? A diehard fan of those very films. Could this be the basis for the perfect story which could jump start not only Greg's career but also his life?
