Based on the classic novel by H.G. Wells, THINGS TO COME tells the story of a great war that lasts decades, culminating in plague spread through biological warfare, grinding Europe down until it has returned to the Middle Ages.

In one town run by a tyrannical baron, a man shows up in a flying machine, which had been thought extinct. He tells the people that a new power is emerging–a utopian society run by scientists and guided by reason. This society triumphs against fear and superstition, but when it attempts to send people into space, fear and superstition raise their ugly head again.

A brilliant movie. Today, as then, human beings continue to face the same choices–division, fear, greed and superstition on the one hand, and reason, progress and enlightenment on the other.

Check her out on National Geographic TV, which shows what she hopes to communicate with her art and how she makes it.

Ross Marquand, who plays Aaron on THE WALKING DEAD, also does great celebrity impressions. In one funny short video, he does quickie impressions of celebrities doing mundane things like forgetting what they were going to say, trying to get a word in, and applying the five-second rule to a dropped sandwich.

THE WHISTLER proves a lot can be done with just a few minutes of film if you have good writing and acting. A man and a woman live in a second floor apartment. At night, they hear a strange hooting sound. When they hear noises in the apartment at night, the man goes to investigate …

The man and woman behave like a normal couple, in denial that anything scary is going on. Their normal interactions, woven around the horror element and slowly being subsumed by it, make them endearing and the story seem real, both of which combine to create real stakes and genuine tension in just a short amount of time.

In short, a great little horror film.
