Here is a list of the films and their trailers:

The film follows five paranormal investigators who venture into the infamous Farhope Tower with dreams of landing a Reality TV deal. The Farhope Tower is known for its dark history of unexplained suicides and the team gets more than they bargained for when they enter the labyrinthine lair containing the most powerful spirits they’ve ever faced. Once inside the tower an omnipresent evil begins manipulating the group, and the higher they climb the more everything spirals out of control. From the filmmakers behind 88 and DEAD BEFORE DAWN 3D comes a classy chiller that will leave audiences super-creeped out. 

The film stars John White (American Pie Presents Franchise, The Kennedys), April Mullen (Good God, History of Violence, Cavedweller); Tim Doiron (88, Dead Before Dawn 3D), Evan Williams (Lloyd the Conquerer, Awkward, Versailles), and Lauren Collins (Degrassi: The Next Generation, Kroll Show).

AND THEY WATCHED is a horror morality tale about the custodian of an electric chair and its last casualty. Inspired by the recent reinstatement of the electric chair in Tennessee, US. 

A young girl's dream of becoming the savior of mankind by giving birth to the devil comes alive in this tribute to silent-era horror.

While on her bachelorette party getaway, Casey, the bride to be, gets a seemingly harmless bite from an unknown insect. After returning home with cold feet, Casey tries to call off her wedding but before she's able to, she starts exhibiting insect like traits. Between her physical transformation and her wedding anxiety, Casey succumbs to her new instincts and begins creating a hive that not only houses her translucent eggs, but feeds on the flesh of others. As her transformation becomes complete, Casey discovers that everything can change with a single bite.
