AMERICAN NIGHTMARES

AMERICAN NIGHTMARES is written and directed by Darin Scott and Rusty Cundieff (TALES FROM THE HOOD), starring Danny Trejo, Chris Kattan, Clarence Williams III, Jay Mohr, Nichelle Nichols, Vivica Fox, and more.

Logline: Mr. Malevolent (Danny Trejo) hacks into two millennials’ computers and forces them to watch horror tales which reveal the twisted consequences of various immoral crimes.

Concept: Like the “Tales from the Crypt” and “American Horror Story” television series, “American Nightmares ” is a horror-comedy that teaches valuable moral lessons to its audience.  Each tale is over-the-top, but reflects important societal conflicts surrounding racial discrimination and the treatment towards others.

Synopsis: “Running With The Devil” draws on Jason Cabell’s real-life USA Navy Seal experiences assigned to work with the DEA in Colombia’s coca drug fields. When a cocaine shipment is compromised to the dismay of the Cartel’s CEO/ leader, The Boss (Barry Pepper), the Boss orders his most trusted Cook (Nicolas Cage) and another master drug trafficker, The Man (Laurence Fishburne) on a dangerous journey to audit the company’s supply chain. We follow the cocaine from its origins as a coca plant in Colombia, where a hardworking family-man, The Farmer (Clifton Collins Jr.), and his wife and children must deliver the cocaine paste out of the treacherous mountainous jungles of Colombia on its first stop in a long journey north. The Cook and the Man, with the help of The Executioner (Cole Hauser), navigate the shipment across  international  borders, through a spectrum of federales, gangsters, refiners, couriers into Canada – to the final point of purchase. This fast-paced adventure is a dangerous journey of life and death, as the Agent in Charge (Leslie Bibb) along with her Number One (Peter Facinelli) dog the Cartel’s every turn, and a compromised Snitch (Adam Goldberg) threatens to destroy internal secrets… infuriating the Boss.

Zeroville

SYNOPSIS: Vikar (James Franco), an architecture student inspired by the few films he has seen, rides the bus into Hollywood. Vikar is almost autistic (later, his friend “Viking Man” (Seth Rogan) dubs him a “cineautistic”) in his interactions with the world, and is deeply affected by his childhood with his religiously oppressive father. With a tattoo of Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor as they appear in A Place in the Sun (a film that plays an important role in the plot) on his shaved head, Vikar makes an impression on the beautiful actress Soledad (Megan Fox).
