We're not the only ones going crazy? In Justin McConnell's The Collapsed, a family attempts to escape the end of the world by heading for the woods, but what if the end of the world starts from inside? This psychological thriller and drama will have several Canadian theatrical showings, including appearances in Calgary (Uptown Stage & Screen), Hamilton (The Staircase Theatre), and Toronto, at the Carlton Cinema. United States based horror fans can catch the film's premiere at the Fangoria Film Festival, later this year.

The constant threat of a violent death forcing them to stay as far away from civilization as possible, they take to the forest, soon to discover the danger posed by other survivors may be the least of their worries" (Unstable Ground).
