When a young man (Michael Wayne Walton) falls victim to the pitfalls of unrequited love for one of his fellow role-players (Laura Tidwell), he is thrown into despair and takes his own life.

'Til Death Do Us Part
In a last ditch effort to save their marriage, Meg and Tom decide to take a day hike in the mountains to reconnect and rediscover what brought them together. At first, their efforts work, but when a deadly stalker starts playing games with them, the question is: Will they pull together or turn on each other? - Approx. 85 minutes
Night Train To Terror
God and Satan are on a train full of break dancing teenagers telling each other stories about humans. The first story focuses on an institute for the mentally ill that is really a cover for a black market organ-harvesting operation. The second story focuses on a man who falls for a woman who is part of a group of people that attempt suicide for fun. The final story tells the tale of a group of mortals who attempt to stop Satan from returning to earth to begin the apocalypse. - Approx. 85 minutes
A group of college kids go camping out in the Arizona desert, but unfortunately an axe-wielding maniac joins the fun. Fortunately the college kids came with an arsenal of pistols and rifles. And fortunately for the maniac, he's got a nice abandoned grain silo for disposing of the bodies. Beer drinkin' college dudes, babes in bikinis, mob thugs - looks like the maniac has some work to do. - Approx. 89 minutes
Roleplaying with a Vengeance

"After viewing Jeffrey Kennedy's Knight Chills at the East Lansing Film Festival last spring, the images resonated in my memory for days. It was one of those films that let you continue reliving the intense moments and contemplating the motives of the characters long after you've walked out of the theatre. This is the dark tale of a group of young adults and their former teacher who are members of a roleplaying game club. One embittered young man takes the game a bit too seriously, and seeks revenge upon his fellow role-players in a most bizarre and brutal way. The writing is intelligent, the performances are powerful. The action scenes will keep you on the edge of your seat. At the same time, the nuances and subtleties of the characters' relationships to one another will intrigue you and keep you guessing.You don't have to know a thing about role-playing to enjoy this film, which speaks to the brilliant dialogue. Those who are familiar with role-playing games will feel that they are right there at the game table with the characters. This is some of the most cleverly choreographed dialogue (the writing and filming) I have seen since the dinner table scene in Hannah and Her Sisters.Purchasing this film is a wise investment, as you will want to view it again and again."
Well, it's better than "Mazes and Monsters"

"A fantasy-prone geeky kid (so geeky that the other members of his role-playing group taunt him) dies and a BLACK KNIGHT rises up to avenge him. Kind of ho-hum in that there is no nudity (that's actually okay given the cast), the violence is on par with a made-for-TV movie, and the plot is pretty predictable. I liked the effort that they put into it to make RPGs seem sinister and sexy."

"John can't have what he wants in this life, so he's going to make sure he gets it in the next! Knight Chills is a psychological thriller about what happens when the lines between this life and the next are blurred... and the chilling consequences that follow. Set in the present day and in the dead of winter, this feature revolves around an ensemble of young people who share the thrills of role-playing, and the subsequent terror when one of their own takes the game too far."
