‘Howl’, is a werewolf movie satire about a detective, on the trail of a murderer in Hollywood, whose hours are seriously hindered by the fact he’s a werewolf. A young Affleck-ian type heartthrob has turned up dead on a movie set and it’s up to him to find the killer…. before the moon rises, of course.
Writer/Director Riley Stearns shot Magnificat, a short starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead (The Thing (2011), Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and Stephen Tobolowsky (Memento, Groundhog Day, Buried), over one weekend this past summer. It’s now complete and is well worth checking out. It’s a quiet, suspenseful and creepy 13 minutes.
In the short, “A young woman is tormented by malevolent visions that begin to bleed into reality.”

A U.S. contractor working in Iraq awakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it’s a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.
Official synopsis: Paul Conroy is not ready to die.
But when he wakes up 6 feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Buried with only a cell phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited. Poor reception, a rapidly draining battery, and a dwindling oxygen supply become his worst enemies in a tightly confined race against time- fighting panic, despair and delirium, Paul has only 90 minutes to be rescued before his worst nightmare comes true.
