2015 Horrible Imaginings Short Film: Junk Girl!

junk girl

Country of Origin: Iran

There once was a girl
who was made up of junk.
She looked really dirty,
and she smelled like a skunk.

She was always unhappy,
or in one of her slumps-perhaps 'cause she spent
so much time down in the dumps.

The only bright moment
was from a guy named Stan.
He was from the neighborhood
garbage man.

He loved her a lot
and made a marriage proposal,
but she already thrown herself
in the garbage disposal.

"Junk Girl" will be featured during the "Animation" Short Film Block, starting at 4:45pm on Sunday, September 13th!

2015 Horrible Imaginings 1st Annual Horror For Humanity Showcase: Ants Apartment!


Country of Origin: Iran

This story is about a threesome family that live in the ant’s apartment in one of the deserts of Iraq after the war. One day a strange thing happens that changes their…

"Often I hear how people reject the horror genre because there is already 'so much horror in the world,' or 'if I want horror I will just watch the news.' Those statements fail to take into account the concept that filmmaking is an art that can exist to help us discuss and begin to deal with real-world horrors. The news is meant to inform, but it does little to react to real-world issues on a more personal level. That's what film is for. Horrible Imaginings is proud to announce the start of a new endeavor we are calling "Horror for Humanity": an initiative to showcase, and eventually help fund, different films that choose to look at some of the darkness of existence and channel that darkness through creative expression. Thank you for joining me in expanding what we can do with genre cinema!"

-Miguel Rodriguez, director of the Horrible Imaginings Film Fesitval

It's not often the ending reveal of a film can take me off guard. "Ants Apartment" did just that.

"Ants Apartment" will be featured during the "Horror for Humanity" Short Film Block, starting at 4:45pm on Saturday, September 12th!
