A seventy-minute compilation of supernatural mysteries and psychological puzzles that includes two dramas, a comedy, a spy thriller, a science fiction short, and a horror film, all by local resident John Gray. It is doubtful that anyone in our county has more experience writing and directing narrative film and television than John Gray, the creator of the long running series Ghost Whisperer starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. USA, 2018 – 2022, 67 minutes (film running time).

A reporter interviews the manager of the Boston Red Sox in an attempt to uncover secrets from his past.

A young boy is forced to deal with the entity that possesses his mother.

A black comedy, quarantine era murder mystery – a ZOOM meeting for a corrupt investment company goes horribly wrong. Made completely through ZOOM, with all of the actors working from home.

What seems like a simple assignment for a spy to keep tabs on an Iranian defector becomes a more complicated game of cat and mouse in the streets of Paris.

The brilliant designer of smart houses leaves a posthumous surprise for his widow.

All is not what it seems when a father and son have a violent confrontation on Christmas Eve.

Following the films, John Gray will discuss his filmmaking with local screenwriter (Ronin, Witchblade) and professor at the SUNY Purchase School of Film and Media Studies, J.D. Zeik.

Proof of vaccination and face masks are not currently required in The Nyack Center. We appreciate purchasing tickets in advance in order to reduce physical interactions. There will be extra space between seats if possible, and the wearing of face masks is welcome.
