EAT LOCAL

Action | Horror

Charlie Cox, Mackenzie Crook

In a quiet countryside farmhouse, Britain’s vampires gather for their once-every-fifty-years meeting. Others will be joining them too; Sebastian Crockett, an unwitting Essex boy who thinks he’s on a promise with sexy cougar Vanessa; and a detachment of Special Forces vampire killers who have bitten off more than they can chew. This is certainly going to be a night to remember… and for some of them it will be their last.

LUCK AT FIRST SIGHT

Jericho Rosales and Bela Padilla

Romance | Comedy

Joma (Jerico Rosales) is a down-on-his-luck guy who believes that a “life charm” could help make for him a rosy existence despite the drudgery of everyday living. By accident and by some stroke of fate, he meets Diane dela Cruz (Bela Padilla), who he thinks is his “life charm.” Little did he know that their encounters would lead him to the toughest choice his heart will ever make: luck or love.

Diane, however, is no sucker for stories of luck and/or life charms. She is a firm believer of love and how romance sheds light, beauty and happiness to one’s being. Their partnership proves lucky enough until they discover that choosing between luck and love can be a tough pick.
