An effective take on the good old slasher theme, Masks is a story of a couple of actors preparing for a show in an old theatre where the dress rehearsal doesn’t go exactly as planned. The setting and the tone have a lot in common with the Michele Soavi classic Stage Fright (1987). Ryan Reaney, the other producer of Masks, also acted as the producer on the Night Visions short hit Portal to Hell!!! (2015)

Set in Wisconsin of 1896, Sons of Bitches is an unscrupulous, visually stunning horror western emerging from Switzerland. Edited and partially produced by Olivier Beguin, a guest of honor of the spring 2014 edition of Night Visions with his feature length directorial debut Chimeres, Sons of Bitches idoes not shy away from its Tarantino influences but empahizes the horror elements of the story on the exact right tone.

The first fictional short directed by Anthony Sneed, one of the filmmaker guests of honor of this edition of Night Visions, Suck is a wicked story of a twisted relationship between a New York real estate broker and his alpha male client. Also starring Sneed (male lead of the 2008 Night Visions hit Bad Biology by Frank Henenlotter), Suck mixes a slash of graphic imagery with ultra dark humor, slightly in the vein of Chris Morris. Night Visions is extremly proud to host the world premiere of Suck, with Anthony Sneed presenting the screening to the audience.
