Alice Lowe‘s Prevenge – in which a pregnant mother-to-be begins revenge-killing those responsible for the death of her partner, seemingly at the behest of her unborn baby – starts the triple bill at 10:45pm. Gareth Tunley‘s The Ghoul follows at 12:35am, telling the tale of an undercover detective who is investigating a bizarre double-homicide when reality begins to unravel around him. Finally, Steve Oram‘s Aaaaaaaah! – a film with no dialogue, as its protagonists have reverted to ape-like grunts and increasingly simian behaviour despite all the modern mod-cons – rounds things off at 2:20am until the channel closes for the night at 4:00am.
