Frankenstein vs. The Creature From Blood Cove

Near an isolated beach on the California coast, in a laboratory of horror three renegade scientists have resurrected Frankenstein's long-dead monster. . . the legendary, indestructible corpse has come back to life yet again! At the same time, they've biogenetically engineered a half-man, half-fish abomination, intending to use both brutes as weapons in the worldwide fight against terrorism. However, disaster strikes when the chemical brainwashing used to control the terrifying beasts fails - instead of stopping terror, these invincible fiends spread terror! The horror begins when the amphibious beast claims its first victims - gorgeous models and their crew shooting a glamorous photo spread on the beach! Rescued and held hostage by the scientists, the survivors of the grisly rampage must find a way to escape both their mad captors and the rampaging monsters, and warn the world of the horrific danger! Shot entirely in black and white, William Winckler's FRANKENSTEIN VS. THE CREATURE FROM BLOOD COVE, is a loving homage to the classic horror films of the 1940s and the Atomic Age "creature features" of the 1950's.

Star Wreck - In the Pirkinning

Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning is a feature-length sci-fi parody, seven years in the making. It is the product of a core group of five Finns, and over 300 extras, assistants and supporters. The film combines world-class visual effects, a rough-and-ready sense of humour, and a passion that provide the basis for the first-ever Finnish science fiction adventure.

Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning is not your run-of-the-mill parody aimed solely at Star Trek fans. It is a motion picture for everyone with a taste for action, humour and zany characters. It is the story of Emperor Pirk - a star fleet commander who declares himself a global overlord and decides to expand his reign beyond the farthest reaches of the universe. The story that unfolds amidst the space battles is a stark reminder of how dangerous the mixture of ambition, cowardice and stupidity is.

Time: Saturday 10.00-13.00. After the movie the director ­Timo Vuorensola will tell about the movie and ansver questions.


Malcolm McDowell (Clockwork Orange) leads the cast in Laurens Postma's EXITZ, a multi-layered thriller about love, deceit, illusions and virtual reality. EXITZ threads together the glamorous world of beauty pageants and millionaire mansions with the harsh side of London's immigrant community and illegal work force. It tells the story of two young lovers caught in a spider's web of intrigue and duplicity.

Malcolm McDowell is Percy – a computer games tycoon – who masterminds a new kind of virtual-reality entertainment. A game that mimics real life with terrifying consequences.

In EXITZ characters and events generate their own choices and trajectories. We enter and travel through the complex maze of life. An intriguing web of choices which life "offers us and our characters" at every turn. Life is about what you make it, but games are about winning and losing EXITZ is a dark romance with life that twists itself into an intellectual thriller and takes the genre a step further.

Everyone gets drawn into the game. Not everyone survives.

Directors Statement
Surveillance requirements have been raised to an inane high level of priority in nation-states around the world, following the attacks of 9/11. This massive increase in routine surveillance of citizens has to raise questions of sociological interest regarding the intensified means of technology-dependent governance common to all western countries. How effective are all these high- tech surveillance measures in procuring security? The quality of social existence in a corperatocracy is affected directly by the routines of everyday life. Games in all its forms are fast becoming an essential routine ingredient of our panoptic day to day existence. Life in a way seems to become more and more "game-like". In the film the ultimate surveillance and above all the ability to influence this viewed surveillance is the object of the game and a possible reflection of what might be in store. The story centres around a powerful man who plays this new "constructive surveillance game" and yet finds himself at the end of it all, despite having won alone, surveilling what?
