Mary and her son Fergal live their lives on the run, using an ancient form of magic to hide from a terrifying hunter who is intent on seeking them out and killing them…
The Pack (La Meute)
In the middle of a snowy no-man’s land Charlotte picks up hitchhiker, Max. They stop in a truck-stop restaurant but, when Max disappears and Charlotte returns to look for him, she finds much more than she bargained for…
The water is tainted, poisoning the minds of the men and creating a psychopathic rabble bent on destruction. This low-budget horror flick is a testament to guerilla style filmmaking with a classic mix of gore and horror.
