EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS

Science Fiction/Fantasy, Suspense/Horror, Action/Adventure and Comedy

1 hr. 40 min. What do you get when you cross toxic waste with a bunch of exotic spiders? Eaten. As every fan of classic spine-tinglers knows, given the opportunity and the right chemical enhancement, arachnids will grow to humongous size and wreak havoc upon humanity.

And they're hungry.


DRIVEN

Action/Adventure and Drama

2 hrs. 07 min. Talented but unfocused rookie Jimmy Bly is slipping in the rankings, cracking under pressure from his ambitious promoter brother. It doesn't help that Bly is pursuing an affair with Sophia, the girlfriend of his nemesis, top racer Beau Brandenburg. With so much riding on Bly, seasoned car owner Carl Henry seeks help from former racing star Joe Tanto, whose once-promising career spun out after a tragic accident that nearly killed him and another driver. But to steer Bly to the top, Tanto must navigate his scarred emotional past, maneuver around the hovering presence of a reporter covering the male-dominated racing scene, and contend with Cathy, his ex-wife, who has since married rival racing sensation Memo Moreno. Caught between success, failure, regret and the need for speed, the four competitors are driven to put the pedal to the metal in pursuit of redemption and glory.
