A twisted sci-fi road comedy with heart, a la “Little Miss Sunshine” with aliens, an interspecies romance and a spoof on classic sci-fi films and the American Southwest’s UFO subculture. JIMMY, a Venice Beach boardwalk hustler, discovers beautiful alien JARA and her two intergalactic circus performers stranded on Earth. He cons them into his “family” of misfit street performers and takes them to Las Vegas. Along the way, sweet-tempered aliens touch jaded human hearts. Ultimately Jimmy must save Jara and her E.T.’s from a ruthless Las Vegas casino kingpin, with the help of Nevada UFO buffs.

Character-driven psychological horror thriller set in a suburban house, with a disturbed female lead and a shocking twist ending, inspired by Henry James' "Turn of the Screw". Two children seem to be haunted by the ghost of their dead mother's secret lover, as seen through the eyes of a young, troubled woman hired as a nanny while their father leaves town on business. Their suburban house evolves into a nightmare world of psychological evil that seems to emanate from the back-yard pool. Hook: is there a ghost in the house, or is the nanny imagining it and going mad?
