"Maybe the greatest movie of all time, seriously, Mind Trap might be the greatest movie ever made. Ever!"
Grindbin Podcast

"A perfect piece of '80s junk about movie crews, Russian spies and heists to steal fantastic machines."  
- Jon Hogan, Flagpole.com

"Clearing conceived and written while in the throes of a fever dream, Mind Trap is highly ambitious and tragically executed mess of poorly done accents, bizarre overdubs, random nudity and a few minutes of Dan Haggerty blowing up balloons. Unlike anything you've ever seen." - Bad Movie Night

Total Mind Seduction from the producer of Hack-o-Lantern.

Shana's parents and sister are murdered after her father learns how to return to life after death. Shana is knowledgeable about said procedure, which is designed by foreign interests, who have even Shana's boyfriend helping them. Accounting for additional characters and footage is the fact that actress Shana is in the entertainment industry. So, Shana becomes both the puruer - intent on avenging her family's death - and the pursued. Featuring Iowa native Maureen LaVette!

Phantoms of the Fog

"Atmosphere reminds me of the films I've shot for Lucio Fulci. Good tension. An excellent short." - Nino Celeste (Director of Photography, Lucio Fulci's House of Clocks, Sweet House of Horrors."

Chris Milewski (A Taste of Phobia, POE IV: The Black Cat) returns with another Italian horror inspired short flick - Phantoms of the Fog! This 12 minute affair consists of a heaping dose of, you guessed it, Italian horror, with a dash of those classic Vietnam War action flicks churned out around the world during the mid to late '80s. Starring Filmiracle Productions regulars Karen Lynn and Terry Reilly, newcoming Ryan Fargo plays the part of an American soldier wandering around in the jungle for reasons unknown. This time around, Chris has recruited Luca Coscarella (known for his amazing cover tracks, most notably his Burial Ground: Night of Terror cover) to deliver a hypnotic musical score. Now, of course it's not the 1980s anymore, so this film does still contain some of it's own charm in the mix.
