A group of rebels battling with laser guns against an oppressive, strong-armed regime. Sound familiar? Swine is probably what Star Wars would have resembled if George Lucas was forced to operate on a shoestring, nearly non-existent budget.
Is there anything creepier than a really good spider movie? Maybe finding a big spider in your bed is creepier, but we'd say spider movies rank right up there in the skin-crawling department. Andrea Ricca tapped into that fear for his new short film, Spider Danger, which we have in its entirety.

The indie horror short may be one of the most underrated art forms in existence today. This kind of thing just doesn't happen in other mediums. A 10-minute 'buddy comedy' or a song that's only one verse and one chorus wouldn’t work. But good indie horror shorts work. Say hello to Rebecca.
There is nothing like an outstanding short film. You get all the perks of a feature without having to dedicate two hours to the thing. And BenDavid Grabinski has a star-studded short for you entitled Cost of Living.
