Karma is followed by Red Rover a sci-fi horror with twists and turns that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat. A spy mission to implant a device in the brain of a Russian spy was offered for early release of two prisoners. If the mission was successful would Mr. Black, the handler live-up to their agreement? The younger one wanted early release to see his daughter graduate high school, the older man didn’t want to spend his remaining years locked up. For him, the mission was a no- brainer, knowing he most likely wouldn’t get out alive. Depending on themselves, did they have the aptitude to outsmart their handler and gain freedom from prison with a successful mission or were they meant to die?
Next up! Wendy, a blue-gray sci-fi alien, whose spaceship crashed, with many survivors that created isolated camps away from earthlings who wanted to exterminate them all.
