Rage: The indie horror film Rage has recently completed its festival run and is in the process of securing distribution.

"RAGE tells the story of Dennis Twist, a suburban, 30-something who unintentionally provokes the wrath of a mysterious and homicidal motorcycle rider. The confrontation with “The Biker” escalates into a daylong battle of cat and mouse concluding in an extremely violent rampage."

Donner's Pass: Constellation TV has announced that there will be five special screenings of Donner Pass, starting on January 11th. The screenings will be taking place on Constellation, and online theater service:

"Donner Pass tells the story of settlers in 1846 that became snowbound in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and had to resort to cannibalism to survive. Some 150 years later, a group of teens on a snowboard trip discover that the curse of the Donner Party still haunts those mountains when members of their group start turning up not only dead, but half-eaten. Nothing - and no one - is what it seems in this provocative dark thriller. And history doesn't always stay in the past."

They have a number of special events taking place online next week, including a chat with Tales from the Crypt's John Kassir. For more information, visit: https://www.constellation.tv/film/94#p=1
