Imagine the horror when the woman of your dreams suddenly transforms into your recently-deceased mother. That’s the eerie set-up in Mother, May I?. The tale follows the distraught Emmett, as he wrestles with the waking nightmare of his beloved fiancée Anya’s perplexing metamorphosis, eerily mirroring his late mother’s characteristics. It’s a haunting dive into the subconscious where personal traumas intertwine with supernatural disturbances, creating a riveting spectacle that’s uniquely disturbing.
Cult Hero introduces us to Kallie Jones, probably the last person you’d expect to lead a thrilling rescue mission. Living her life as a real estate agent and a textbook ‘Karen’, Kallie’s world takes a wild turn when her husband falls prey to a beguiling death cult. Teaming up with an offbeat ‘cult buster’, she steps out of her comfort zone and into a whirl of chaos to save him.

It’s a wild ride that proves even a ‘Karen’ can save the day.
Hit ‘Play’ on Porno for a romp through one truly bizarre night. Centered on a hapless group of teen movie theater employees, things move from mundane to madness when they dig up an eerie film tucked away in the basement. Unleashing a seductive succubus, the teens’ night turns into a horror-tinged sex education – quite literally, lessons in blood. With a comedic touch wonderfully complementing the gore, Porno delivers a serving of horror that’s unconventional, unexpected, and undeniably entertaining. Expect the unexpected on this wild, at times risqué, horror ride.
In the Argentinean horror movie The Funeral Home, home is where the haunts are. The lines between living space and workspace blur for undertaker Bernardo, whose family cohabitates with their mortuary business. But sharing their home with coffins and wreaths is the least of their woes – mischievous specters are their regular guests. The family, once viewing these uncanny occurrences as an occupational hazard, soon embarks on a quest to uncover the true root of this supernatural chaos.
Craving a dash of the supernatural with a side of hilarity? Extra Ordinary, with its eccentric premise and charming characters, is your perfect companion. Residing in a uniquely haunted universe is Rose, a driving instructor with a cryptic set of supernatural skills. Amid tackling a washed-out rockstar’s sinister pact, there’s a hysterical and heartwarming frolicking in the domain of love, exorcism, and, particularly, ectoplasmic antics.
Alright, cheeky drumroll, if you will, for the final flick. This one’s personally special because, well, I unobtrusively sneaked it onto the list. It’s Sinphony: A Horror Anthology, a collection of creepy, bite-sized horror tales. Keep your eyes peeled for my spooky-but-sweet segment, Do Us Part?. If you thought regular break-ups were tough, try navigating one with a ghost. Does Sinphony sound like your kind of twisted fun? Throw it on your watch list and see for yourself. Hey, it’s free.
