A claustrophobic modern ghost story, Dark Summer follows Daniel Williamson, a 17-year-old boy under house arrest for the summer after cyberstalking a classmate. With his mother away on business, a horrifying incident occurs, and Williamson soon experiences strange supernatural occurrences–which become increasingly more sinister and terrifying, with twists that will leave audiences reeling. Starring Peter Stormare (Fargo), Maestro Harrell (“The Wire”), Keir Gilchrist (It Follows, “United States of Tara”), Stella Maeve (The Runaways), and Grace Phipps (Fright Night), Dark Summer is a highly original twist on the supernatural summer season terror.

Set in 2021, Alien Outpost is the story of the aftermath of the First Earth War, in which an invading race of aliens known as the Heavies are narrowly defeated. But thousands of the aliens were left behind, and a new war on terror now rages. In the wake of the war, a series of remote operating bases are created to defend the planet, with the deadliest being base Three Seven, positioned in the most hostile place on Earth.
A documentary film crew is sent to record daily life in Outpost Three Seven, where the men, led by hardened commander Captain Spears (Rick Ravanello, Dark Haul), are under constant enemy fire. When a member of the crew disappears during a Heavy ambush, the unit launches a raid deep into enemy territory to rescue him… only to make a terrifying discovery.
Directed by Jabbar Raisani (Visual Effects Supervisor on “Game of Thrones,” Machete, Predators), the explosive Alien Outpost is a science-fiction gem with stunning effects and non-stop action.
