MEME IS SCREENING IN BROOKLYN!48391205_1418834248247057_7648869135316680704_n

Meme’s official theater tour begins with the city it was made in!

“Meme masquerades as a common relationship drama, when in fact it presents a fascinating existential commentary that is perfectly tied up in a full circle approach”

-Tasha Danzig, Spoiler Free Movie Sleuth

Meme is the first feature film directed by Sean Mannion. The film won best feature at the 2018 Art of Brooklyn Film Festival.

Synopsis: Jennifer, an independent designer disappointed in her stalled relationship and career, discovers a surreal mashup videotape, labeled “Meme,” among a friend’s VHS collection. She goes in search of Meme’s creator, tracking down people who appear on the tape to gain greater insight into what it is and why it exists. As she pursues the creator of the tape she takes greater control of other aspects of her life including her relationship, difficult clients, and a drinking problem that increasingly interferes with her life.

Director Sean Mannion & lead actor Sarah Schoofs will be in attendance to meet the audience and discuss the film following the screening.

Prior to the feature we will present It’s Normal, a new short, political, horror film co-written by Sean Mannion and directed by award-winning filmmaker Nicole Solomon.

In It’s Normal a young woman checks in on a friend from her grief support group and learns that her changing world may be even scarier than it appears on the surface.

screen-shot-2018-04-28-at-9-29-47-am.png“AYLA isn’t a film for everyone, it’s twisted, dark and intense. It’s also a powerful one that will provoke thought as well as shock and possibly offend. It’s available now on VOD, cable on demand, etc. and I suggest you see it.”


“A combination of psychological disturbance and occasional squirmy body horror, AYLA is above all a portrait of grief so intense that it apparently manifests the object of that sadness.”


“Elias Ganster’s AYLA is a mesmerising assault on emotions that delves into madness in a way only matched by the great Lynch himself. UNDER THE SKIN meets MULHOLLAND DRIVE in a performance driven horror that battles demons of literal and metaphorical being.”


“Every piano note, every drawn out synthesizer note, is the constant, otherworldly score inside Eltons head. Every tortured and longing minute is expertly given sound. Life has been toying with Elton and he’s had enough. Ayla is a film full of an edgy, dangerous sadness. It’s a tough film to sit through because of that, but it won’t leave your mind anytime soon. Even with its more awkward, incestuous moments, the film haunted me like Ayla’s death haunted her brother.”

Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 10.14.56 AM.png

“Ayla is a dark, sometimes disturbing meditation on grief and loss. Dread and gloom permeate the film as Elias focuses on psychological horror rather than visceral shocks, and on presenting a mood piece rather than a traditional narrative.”

Three castaways.  Two robots.  And one derelict spaceship.  All that’s left of their world.

But, when a mysterious android named Delta crash-lands on their devastated exoplanet, she brings hope to this band of survivors that can repair their ship, and find their way home.

However, that hope is soon dashed with the arrival of four bounty hunters on a mission that’s more personal than business. 

Secrets long buried in the desert hold the key to who is a survivor and who is the destroyer.

Must-See Trailer “Ayla”

Ayla_teaser_poster_printSCREEN ANARCHY.png

Screen Anarchy is happy to premiere the first teaser for Ayla, the new film from writer/director Elias Ganster (Gut). 

It is an interesting teaser, with hints of some body horror going on in there along with glimpses of the always fascinating Tristan Risk. Out of curiousity I looked up the meaning of her character’s name Ayla. It is Hebrew and Turkish in origin and could either mean oak tree, halo or moonlight. I cannot say if any of that ends up being intentional on Ganster’s part but nature does appear to weigh in thematically here, as it also does in the luring key art.


The film stars Tristan Risk (American Mary) as Ayla and Nicholas Wilder (Gut) as Elton. They are joined by Dee Wallace (E.T., The Howling), Sarah Schoofs (Phobia), D’Angelo Midili (The Invoking), with appearances by Bill Oberst Jr. (Resolution) and Andrew Sensenig (We Are Still Here).

– Andrew Mack



As a proud supporter of Ayla, the sophomore feature film from Gut director Elias, I’ve been following the production every step of the way. The first trailer for the psychological body horror featuring Nicholas WilderSarah Schoofs, and the incomparable Tristan Risk (American Mary) just arrived and we’re pleased to share it with you now. Ayla also includes performances by indie horror heavyweight Bill Oberst Jr. and bona fide icon Dee Wallace.

actress obsession

She’s riveting as Alex who is the relatable figure of this suspenseful, strange film as her paramour Alex tries to resurrect his late four-year old sister and who or what returns in a familiar form of a young woman is terrifying.
Sarah is notable for tapping into the evocative, dark recesses of the horror genre having been eye-catching in the bloody, body horror of “Gut” as well as the film “Phobia” where she returns from the grave as a spectre.

 -Haren Yong


Judging by the trailer, the decision to bring his sister back to life is going to cause Elton (who is played by Nicholas Wilder) a lot of torment. The teaser doesn’t give away much beyond that, but it establishes a very troubling atmosphere and offers glimpses of some interesting images.

Wilder, Risk (who plays Ayla herself), and Oberst Jr. are joined in the cast by Dee Wallace, Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, Andrew Sensenig, Jennifer Lynn Warren, D’Angelo Midili, and Sarah Schoofs.

66eec5b1-1073-4e19-b250-23da3bab1ff1.jpgThe Theatre of Terror combines elements from classic Sci-Fi and Horror television into a brand new, terrifyingly surreal experience, shown from the perspective of four unsuspecting moviegoers. Join us, as we take you into the lives of a deeply shattered soul, a delusional book lover, an unscrupulous hillbilly, and a gruesomely dysfunctional family, each with their own deep, dark desires.

The Bookworm follows a young wealthy book connoisseur who purchases a library of rare texts at an auction.  It’s a perfect escape for this introvert, but there is more to this collection than just old books.
