Kanna is a heavy metal singer, but her stage fright cripples all attempts at her band's success. One day, she meets a long-haired, head-banging, Zombie who changes all that, prompting Kanna to start a new, all-girl (and Zombie) metal band, called Hanaji ("Nosebleed"). Meanwhile, the zombie infection spreads and the military comes calling.

Start your weekend of spooky movies with an informal pre-party at The Lovecraft, Portland's own horror-themed bar and nightclub, located at 421 SE Grand.
Come out, meet us and a whole horde of zomb... er, "like-minded" people over drinks, horror-themed music, and a reel of classic short film faves and trailers.
Party starts at 11pm and there is NO COVER
(note that if you arrive early, another event, which does charge a cover, might still be going on)
Come on up and strut your decayed stuff on our stage. Dress as your favorite undead character, or something completely original, but remember... this is a horror film festival, not an anime convention!
Guest judges include Portland's own Living Dead Girls and Eraserhead/Deadite Press.
With over $200 in prizes donated by The Lovecraft Bar, Sigh Co. Graphics, Artist Liv Rainey-Smith, and The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society, you won't want to miss this opportunity to get bloody for us.
The skeleton of a rat-monkey comes to life in a room full of cursed objects in this Gothic tale with a sci-fi twist. This is the 5th film in the award winning 'Chimerascope' series by MTV and SY FY channel station ID veteran, Aurelio Voltaire. Narrated by electro-Goth, New Wave icon, Gary Numan.
The Music of Jo Hyeja is a cross-cultural adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's 'The Music of Erich Zann': a young student living in a ghetto on the edge of Seoul named Miju, encounters a mysterious upstairs neighbor, an elderly zither-player named Jo Hyeja whose bizarre musical performances fill the air each night.
A mysterious window in Mrs. Jo's lightless upper room beckons menacingly, calling Miju to the attic. Will she survive her brush with the ancient, macabre terrors summoned by a song that shatters the laws of music, sanity, and the very universe itself?
Doctor William Dyer may be the smartest theoretical physicist alive, but he has just blown it. After a routine CERN experiment goes horribly wrong, Dyer has to get to the emergency data access facility he has installed in an abandoned building nearby.
A race against time to avoid unthinkable Armageddon turns into something else - a struggle with himself and his own guilt. Only now, he not alone.
Something older than time itself that has been waiting through the aeons for the chance to return.
And now, the door is open.
A S.W.A.T. team is called into action to respond to a missing police offer in the dead of night. What originally seemed like a routine call has left a grizzly scene inside a home, and the officers find more than their training prepared them for. "Feed A" is a marriage between horror/sci-fi/and the found footage genre. Will they get out of this house alive, or worse, find the truth of the terrible events that were taking place before they arrived?
