Happy Friday guys! It's almost the end of the month, which means the last Sunday of the month is almost here... and that means the second ever Video Vortex will be screening in just a couple of days! But for those who want something cool to play tonight, check out Midnites for Manics, which will be a triple feature happening, for the first time, at the Drafthouse. But that's not all this weekend has in store; it's also surprisingly musical, but you must read on.

Now he's stuck teaching a group of unmotivated students as disappointed to be stuck in school over the summer as he is.

When filmmaker Alistair’s latest slasher -- also called BLOODSTREAM -- is rejected by a scumbag producer, all seems lost. But when Alistair finds out that the rejection was a ruse to cut him out of the profits, he does what any self-respecting weirdo would do -- he dons a skull mask, calls himself The Angel Of Death, and embarks on a revenge-fueled bloodbath!!"
