Barleycorn Bay (2015)
The year is 1925, and thirsty Americans are sneaking around Prohibition. Off the New England coast, rum-runners in fast boats deliver liquor to bootleggers and speakeasies from the ships on Rum Row. Federal officials in Boston must break this illegal supply chain to enforce the 18th Amendment, but it’s easier said than done. Depressed and secluded after a suspension, Prohibition Agent Johnny Quaid is sent to investigate a smuggling incident on Cape Cod. On a lonely beach, he finds tire tracks, smashed crates, and broken bottles. It’s a sure sign of a botched run, except for a ghastly splattering of blood. The case is turned upside down as Quaid searches for a missing boy, a mysterious rum-runner, and a mastermind whose treacherous business will take lives to turn a profit. → Click here to learn more.

Dodging attacks from bloodthirsty monsters, the boy takes flight to the green space, only to be trapped inside by an invisible barrier. He meets four bizarre extraterrestrials, each marooned on Earth, now captives of the mysterious park. With the help of Sebastian, a cryptic old man, Jacob must find a way out or be trapped for eternity. Welcome to Elridge Park, a place full of wonders, dangers, and a secret that will transform the universe. → Click here to learn more.
