Three kids on their way home from school take a detour to investigate rumors of a local urban legend. What lives in the basement of the house on Carter Street? Legend has it that no one lives to find out.

Horrible Imaginings is proud to present our Youth and Student Showcase of upcoming student and under-18 filmmakers! 16-year-old Director John Capizzano IV has the distinction of being the filmmaker who kicked off our Youth and Student Showcase with his film "The Odd Ones" in 2014!

By 15 year old filmmaker Morgana McKenzie: “In the timeless world of fairy tales, villains and victims are visited by a vengeful fairy who offers to shift the balance of power.” While I am a high-school student, this short film is *not* a student project; it is not affiliated in any way with my school. This is an unofficial (but authorized) music video for the song "We All Go the Same" by Radical Face. Music used by expressed permission of Nettwerk Music Group.

Horrible Imaginings is proud to present our Youth and Student Showcase of upcoming student and under-18 filmmakers! Morgana McKenzie is still in high school, but she is composing and editing like a pro. We can't wait to see what does makes next--she rocks!
