With murder and macabre on the mind, amateur and professional filmmakers dabbled in themes of cannibalism, psychological horror, asylums and more, but it was only for one weekend and all for the sake of art. An offshoot of the popular 48 Hour Film Project, the inaugural 48 Hour Film Horror Project challenged teams with a genre (or two), character (Jason or Jacinda Calmes, a know-it-all), prop (umbrella) and dialogue. “They had to incorporate either ‘Wait, that doesn’t look right’ or ‘Well, that doesn’t look right,’” says Laura Schlecht, who co-produced the event along with Kris Thompson. “We released at 7 p.m. Friday and the films were due back by 7:30 p.m. Sunday. ‘Sleep is for the weak’ is one of our catch phrases,” says Schlecht. All 19 of the shorts are premiering at Talento Bilingüe de Houston, with several of the teams expected to be in attendance.

7 to 10 p.m. Thursday. 333 South Jensen. For information, call 713-222-1213 or visit 48hourfilm.com/houston/horror/premiere. $15.
