What if opening a suspicious email attachment didn’t just mess up your computer; it manipulated reality itself? Such is the premise of the latest DUST short film, Signal Dark.

Signal Dark is a DUST short film from Silver Edge Studios. Lucas Anderson is an insular IT technician whose life is turned upside down when he stumbles across a mysterious email and its reality bending contents.”

Audiences can’t seem to get enough of Zendaya on the big screen, and her performance in Challengers takes her star power to another level.

“[Zendaya] has been executing her own Tashi-esque world domination. So far, she’s moved from kids’ TV star to being a part of some of the biggest movies on the planet… With Challengers, though, she’s about to go supernova, firing up in more ways than one to become the hottest talent in Hollywood.

However, it is also painfully effective at making you feel sick to your stomach for nearly 90 minutes straight.”
