Our Dear Dead Drug Lord
March 15, 2024 - March 23, 2024

A gang of teenage girls gathers in an abandoned treehouse to summon the ghost of Pablo Escobar. Are they messing with the actual spirit of the infamous cartel kingpin? Or are they really just messing with each other? A roller coaster ride through the danger and damage of girlhood – the teenage wasteland – has never been so much twisted fun.

The poster for Ride the Cyclone displays a twisting roller coaster track and distorted skull.

Ride the Cyclone
April 26, 2024 - May 4, 2024

In a dilapidated warehouse at an abandoned amusement park, an aging mechanical fortune-teller comes to life, and brings with him a ghostly choir of five deceased high-schoolers who were tragically killed on the park’s Cyclone roller coaster. Now, Karnak has the power to return one of these youths to life - but they must all decide among themselves who is the most worthy of a second chance to “ride the cyclone” that is life.
