Trouble breaks out on a building site this week in Concrete Plans while an actor tries to resurrect his wrestling career in You Cannot Kill David Arquette, Christian teenagers inadvertently release a succubus in Porno - see our interview with director Keola Racela - and a man tries to rescue a marine mammal in The Walrus And The Whistleblower. We peer into the past as Canadians try to choose the right leader for The Twentieth Century, while nothing goes to plan for Lowdown Dirty Criminals, a mother tries to connect with her ailing daughter in Asia and a bereaved man searches for a missing hammer in Patrick. A paralysed girl is trapped in a house with a rabid dog in Ropes and another tries to escape her troubled mother in Run. The aftermath of a nightclub fire is examined in Collective and an actor/stuntman's struggle with burns is recounted in To Hell And Back: The Kane Hodder Story, while we have news and reviews coming in from Tallinn Black Nights and DOC NYC.
