The Perfect House: Marketed as the first movie to premiere on Facebook, The Perfect House is now available on Facebook via Flicklaunch:

"In THE PERFECT HOUSE, newlyweds Mike and Marisol (Will Robertson and Andrea Vahl), are given the tour of their dream home by a perky real estate agent (Monique Parent) and they soon find out their perfect house might just have a foreboding past. The ugly horrors of this house are revealed through three original tales of terror detailing the grim circumstances of the previous occupants. Done as an anthology, each short story in this homage to horror emulates the story and shooting styles of specific time periods in cinematic horror history. The film is directed by Kris Hulbert and Randy Kent and stars Monique Parent, Felissa Rose, Will Robertson, Andrea Vahl, Chris Raab, Jonathan Tiersten, and John Philbin."

During a cigarette break late one evening she witnesses an altercation between an overzealous bouncer and an unfortunate passerby, David. David makes movies and given Charlotte's career interests a friendship quickly develops. Soon enough, David mentions a project he has in the works that she would be perfect for and an excited Charlotte agrees to take part. She has no idea what she has signed up for..."

The House of the Yaga:  A new horror short, The House of the Yaga, is has recently been released for free online.

"Writer Jamieson Ridenhour, artist Ali LaRock, and composer Kevin A. Smith reunite to tell this contemporary take on the Baba Yaga legend. When her brother goes missing, ‘smallish, blue-eyed’ Natasha takes to the streets to find him. Though she is ‘brave and heroic,’ she finds herself challenged by a walking house, a cannibal witch, and her own darker impulses. Presented in the style of their award-winning short Cornerboys, storytellers Ridenhour, LaRock, and Smith take the fairy-tale back to its darkest, bloodiest roots in this short illustrated film."
