Vicious CirclesEdit

  • Directed by Marcel Sarmiento
  • Written by T.J. Cimfel, David White, and Marcel Sarmiento

During the wrap-around, an amateur videographer named Kevin constantly records his experiences with him and his girlfriend, Iris. They record their lives to view later, and seem to both enjoy doing it. Late at night while watching the news, they see that there is a high speed police chase going on nearby. Kevin sees this as an opportunity to make a viral video. He dashes outside to find out he's just to late to get a good shot of the chase, and the van flies by. Kevin then gets a strange video call while Iris wanders outside in a daze. The van circles the neighborhood and abducts Iris. Immediately, Kevin's phone is spammed with images of Iris, so he chases the van. At the same time the images surface Kevin's phone, people of the neighborhood start seeing images on their phones causing the people to become extremely violent.

Kevin tries to catch up to the van by finding faster transportation. Amongst body parts strewn across the ground, he sees an empty cab and enters to find a pair of disembodied hands duct taped to the steering wheel. When he approaches the van, now stopped, he opens the back to find stacked televisions alike the first and second film. Iris appears on one of the screens and demands Kevin to upload the footage he has been recording to broadcasters. At first he refuses, but soon after gives in when Iris starts brutally mutilating herself. With the upload done, he exits the van to find Iris slumped against the side, this is when Kevin realizes he was manipulated, and Iris had already been dead. He notices a phone in her mouth, and removes it to find it in selfie-mode. You can see the shock in his eyes as he glares into the camera, nose bleeding. The ending shot shows the Los Angeles skyline with smoke filling the air. The uploaded footage now affects thousands.

Dante the GreatEdit

  • Directed and written by Gregg Bishop

A man [eventually] known as Dante the Great was an untalented illusionist who happened to come upon and obtain the infamous cloak of Houdini, which grants him the power to do real magic. Because of this cloak, he becomes quickly famous, but soon enough finds out it requires sacrifices to work. Dante hires one female assistant after another, and videotapes their violent deaths at the hands of the cloak.

Dante the Great

When his latest assistant, Scarlet, discovers Dante's collection of tapes, she alerts the police. Dante, using the cloak escapes captivity and dispatches an entire SWAT team. Scarlet confronts him after where the two duel over the cloak. After a brief struggle resulting in Scarlet gaining posession of the cloak, Dante overpowers her and regains control over it. Before he is able to kill her, Scarlet uses a trick Dante taught her to immobilize him, and the cloak feeds on him instead. Scarlet decides to burn the cloak, only to find it in her home. The segment ends with arms reaching out from the cloak, grabbing her.

Parallel MonstersEdit

  • Directed and written by Nacho Vigalondo

On both sides of an interdimensional portal, parallel versions of an inventor named Alfonso greet each other. Encumbered with curiosity, they exchange sides of the portals to explore each other's world. Upon the surface, they seem like mirrored duplicates, but it is soon revealed that this is not the case. While adult film plays in the background, his wife Marta prompts Alfonso to do a ceremony with two men.

Alfonso and Alfonso meet

Disturbed, Alfonso exits the house to see a large blimp in the sky bannered with an inverted cross. When he attempts to record it, he angers the two men who then reveal a demonic appearance and attack him. When Alfonso flees back to the house, he sees Marta who is now displaying her body slewed with demonic qualities. Alfonso strikes Marta to reach the portal once more where the two Alfonsos meet. The demonic Alfonso had attacked Marta in her sleep. The two versions of Marta each kill the husband that belongs to their world, blaming them for the actions their doubles performed.
