The following list of must-see narratives was released recently by OFF:

Mark Potts’ superhero comedy Spaghetti Man features the character, Clark, doesn’t care about you. He doesn’t care about the world. He barely cares about himself. But after an incident with an old bowl of spaghetti and a malfunctioning microwave, he becomes a superhero that can fight crime with the power of spaghetti. However, you have to pay him. Spaghetti Man will also be making its world premiere at OFF.
Johnny Remo’s Saved by Grace stars Joey Lawrence as a bitter ex-cop trying to come to terms with a tragic past with the help of a new relationship which brings some grace into his life.
Max Myers’ Slip, Tumble, and Slide features Scott Wilson and Katherine Ross in a story about overcoming addiction through faith, music and love.
John Stuart Wildman’s critically acclaimed grindhouse genre film, The Ladies of the House starring Anime voice talent Brina Palencia and former adult film star Michelle ‘Belladonna’ Sinclair, follows the events surrounding a birthday outing with two brothers and a friend which turns into a horrific fight for survival after they become trapped in a house with a “family” of malevolent women who enjoy a pin-up lifestyle and a special diet.
Also in the narrative division, a special presentation of the restored Jonathon Demme Presents Made in Texas is a short film compilation about the punk rock scene of the 70s and early 80s. The film was originally screened in 1981.
And lastly, the film Dude Bro Party Massacre III is the comedy troupe 5-Second Films’ hysterical twist on 1980’s slasher flicks. In the wake of two back-to-back mass murders on Chico’s frat row, loner Brent Chirino must infiltrate the ranks of a popular fraternity to investigate his twin brother’s murder at the hands of the serial killer known as Motherface.
