She Dies Tomorrow
If we have learned anything during this pandemic, it is that nothing is more contagious than hysteria. She Dies Tomorrow is a psychological thriller about just that: one woman’s contagious descent into existential madness. After waking up convinced she is going to die tomorrow, recovered-alcoholic Amy’s rebuilt life begins to unravel into chaos. Not only are her delusions of certain death detrimental to her health, but they apparently become contagious and infect those around her, creating a pandemic-esque spread of fatal madness that eats at the lives of her friends and family. But what is really going to kill these infected people: whatever is supposed to kill them, or their mad convictions of their impending deaths? Find out in She Dies Tomorrow.

In Abducted in Plain Sight, a family’s worst nightmare comes to life when a close family friend abducts their pre-teen daughter not once but twice. This chilling documentary tells the story of the Broberg family whose young daughter Jan was abducted two times in the 1970s by their neighbor, Robert Berchtold. One would think that after the first incident the family would cease all communications with said horrible abductor. But as the documentary unravels the dark, secretive and not-so-simple history behind the family members, you come to learn that the Brobergs were doomed from the very start. If you are still confused as to what crazy circumstance would enable a man to kidnap a young girl twice from the same family, check out Abducted in Plain Sight and learn more through our full review of this terrifying documentary.
