WORLD PREMIERE - We all need a place to belong—and why that place may well be with friends in a cold, dirty toilet wrangling bloody, slime-covered tentacles is what this incisive and forthright documentary about the ‘Grassroots Horror’ movement lays bare. Witness the obsessive lengths to which people on micro-budgets will go to bring their greatest fears to life on screen - and why - as small-town creative Mike Lombardo shoots, and reshoots his latest effort ‘The Stall’. Along the way, interviews with fierce women filmmakers, other directors, horror experts and misunderstood fans add their own fascinating, hilarious and moving viewpoints.
