2008, PG-13, 90 min. Directed by Adam Green, Joel David Moore. Starring Joel David Moore, Amber Tamblyn, Zachary Levi, Tricia Helfer.

Not reviewed at press time. This Portland-based creeper about a lonely painter (played by co-director/co-writer Moore) and his muse/potential prey (Tamblyn) was a big hit at last year's Fantastic Fest. Green previously directed the New Orleans-based horror film Hatchet, which also starred Moore and nabbed Audience and Jury awards at Fantastic Fest '06. Note: This superlimited engagement – one show a night, less than one week – means you've only got six shots at Spiral.
