--Luke and Andy Campbells Cordoba Nights, a comedy about a pizza-delivery guy, a girl, and the wildest night of his life (it involves car thieves and the mob).
--Madness, Bill Johns thriller about five college girls who spend the night in a mansion owned by one of the gals very crazy brother.
--Ted Sikoras superhero comedy Hero Tomorrow, in which a pot-smoking comic-book writer transforms into his crime-fighting creation.
--The Horror Convention Massacre, Joe Ostricas slasher-pic tribute to horror-movie fans -- some of whom are knocked off at a geekfest. Look for cameos by such B-flick faves as Lloyd Kaufman and Lew Temple.
--Lucas says he spots a common thread among the directors. Were all interested in genre movies. Theyre about things that influenced us as kids: comic books, horror movies. We all love telling stories. Plus, they all have to deal with the obstacles that await Northeast Ohio-based filmmakers. Finding the time and resources is so challenging, says Lucas. I needed a butcher shop for a scene in my movie. Nobody wanted to be a part of it. They all thought I was filming a YouTube video.
