Rue Morgue and Unstable Ground take 'Little Terrors' on tour

If you know me, you know that I am a big fan of the short film format. In fact, some of my favorite films of the last couple of years have been shorts. So, news of this upcoming tour is grand news. Rue Morgue and Unstable Ground have been running the Little Terrors for one year now, and are just entering their second, and have decided to take the format on tour to a few festivals. The line-up for this tour looks mighty fine too, with two of my absolute favorites, which include my number one short of 2011, are included. Oh, and viewers in some of the cities listed should keep their eyes peeled for a screening of a rarely seen short, that isn't listed!

Brutal Relax (15 minutes, Spain, subtitled)

When a gang of mutant sea-monsters on a murder-spree interrupts a man's much needed vacation, his anger management techniques fail him, to deadly results. Insane gore-fest with outstanding special effects.

After a genetic mutation sends his life spiraling out of control, Sammy Jenkins has to fight for his life with his unique abilities in order to survive. Those unique abilities include the giant killer hemorrhoid growing out of his ass. Current festival hit!

Black Goat (6 minutes)
DIR: Joseph Nanni
Adam Wilson stars in this impressive HP Lovecraft-inspired short film. Selected by Guillermo Del Toro as runner-up of the 2011 HP Lovecraft Film Festival.

The Auburn Hills Breakdown (17 minutes)
DIR: Geoff Redknap
The loyal son of a backwoods cannibal clan must hold his family together when they are forced to take shelter in the terrifying home of a yuppie couple. A brilliant subversion of the 'backwoods killer' flicks, and previous selection of Toronto After Dark.

Prick (9.5 minutes)
DIR: Colin Berry
Welcome to the heart and mind of serial killer Leonard Knack. Every day is the same for him, but something is about to make his life take a dramatic turn. Award-winning festival short, and previous selection of Toronto After Dark.

TRT (4 minutes)*
DIR: Darryl Shaw
ED correction goes horribly wrong in this short from the director 'Android Re-Enactment'. Created for the 'ABCs of Death' director search contest. Check it out on the big screen!

Tub (12.5 minutes)*
DIR: Bobby Miller
A young man with commitment issues jerks off in the shower... and impregnates his bathtub. Seriously.

Deus Irae (13.5 minutes, Argentina, subtitled)*
DIR: Pedro Cristiani
A fragile border separates our world from the realm or darkness, where nightmarish creatures await. Only one thing stands in their way, the "Deus Irae", a secret order of priests. Award-winning short filled with gore and atmosphere, previous selection of Toronto After Dark.
