Exclusive Short Film Premiere: Kaiju Craziness in Curtis Jaeger’s “MIND CITY TERROR”!


If you were in attendance last Saturday for the International Oddities Shorts program at the inaugural edition of the Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival, you likely had your mind blown by MIND CITY TERROR, Curtis Jaeger’s kick-ass short film featuring big monsters, badass robots, and a bloody new take on therapy. Taking on a visually stunning story with a shoestring budget, anyone who loves the Kaiju genre will likely go head-over-heels for Jaeger’s impressive sci-fi short, which also racked up accolades at last year’s Another Hole in the Head festival. With that in mind, FANGORIA is extremely excited to premiere MIND CITY TERROR to the world, presenting the 15-minute short film in its entirety to genre cinema fanatics worldwide!

Starring Ryder Darcy, James F. Ross, Nina Jordan, Erik Braa, and Melissa Keith, here’s the official synopsis for MIND CITY TERROR…

MIND CITY TERROR is a 15-minute Kaiju short film following Isaac, a young man facing a difficult time in his life. As he talks to his therapist, the city of his mind is under attack by an 80-story Monster of Shame. To conquer the demon of his anxieties and regain control of himself, he summons a steel guardian controlled by his own ego. Created by San Francisco-based filmmaker, Curtis Jaeger, MIND CITY TERROR is a tribute to mental health and the pressures of living in a modern society.
