N by Iacopo Di Girolamo
An expressionist nightmare in which an inventor and his colleague test the ‘Automaton’, a machine able to create things from nothing. The machine works perfectly as long as the items it’s asked to create start with the letter "N"...in German. The results of the test will be predictably catastrophic.
Stop Invasion! by Leopoldo Medugno
A mysterious epidemic is spreading through Italy. There are those who think that it's happening because of the vaccines, while others are ready to swear that it is the fault of a meat-based diet, but until now the most accepted hypothesis is that the disease has started with the foreigners.
Divina Mortis by Josh Heisenberg
A dark story about fundamentalist monks and ravenous zombies. In this dawn of the living dead story, a dark sect of friars is convinced the Catholic faith can protect them from a zombie plague.
Scenario by Alessandro De Leo and Alex Avella
After a mysterious introduction to the story by a fisherman, a woman meets what appears to be an alien in the middle of the night and decides to help him, taking him to a cabin in the woods.
