Then, one day they unexpectedly find the well is empty. Santa knows who’s been naughty this year and is coming with a sack of deadly gifts!

A Real Friend (Directed by Enrique Urbizu):
Ten-year-old Estrella spends a lot of time alone at home…or so it appears to everyone else. Like many children, she has imaginary friends, but hers are a bit different. Her friends are monsters.

To Let (Directed by Jaume Balagueró):
Carolina and Tony have looked at dozens of potential apartments, and none of them have worked. When their realtor assures them that a newly refurbished and renovated apartment will be a perfect fit, they decide to check it out. Upon arrival, they find an abandoned looking building without any residents or people in sight. They go up to the 3rd floor and enter the apartment, which is something they should never have done.

Spectre (Directed by Mateo Gil):
An elderly writer visits the small coastal village where he was born and raised. He reminisces of his childhood and a beautiful, mysterious woman he has been unable to forget. As he walks through his old village he catches a glimpse of the same woman he fell in love with in his youth. However, she has not aged since the day he saw her. He follows her but is not ready for what he finds.

Blame (Directed by Narciso Ibáñez Serrador):
Ana, a gynecologist, invites Gloria, a nurse and friend from the hospital, and Gloria’s daughter Vicky, to come and live with her so Gloria can be her new assistant. The house, a section of which is used as a private clinic, is light, cheerful and peaceful. However, something sinister is alive in there. Once Gloria has moved in, Ana reveals that her private practice is in fact an abortion clinic. It is a clinic where truth, pain, life and death all intermingle and where the patients and doctors are never truly alone.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
