Garlic and Gunpowder

 

Synopsis: Sonny and Archie are two Mafia wise guys and "contractors" for big time drug pusher Ma; a 300 pound, cigar chompin', loud, obnoxious and abrasive white woman married to her skinny drink of water, black husband, Willy. Her two kids: Robert and Roxy are typical Millennials...living at home with their parents when they should be out. The kids have a knack to interpret subliminal TV messages and have decoded some major information for Ma.

A comet has the world in a panic. Doomsday media pundits claim it's the end of the world and will hit us. NASA says not gonna happen and it's just hype. Regardless this comet has Sonny rethinking his life. It's too short and their time could be up whether the comet hits or not. He's thinking marriage to a nice girl, maybe even kids and a vineyard in Italy with his life long best friend and business partner, Archie.

Archie is more cynical, but he hears what Sonny is saying. Neither of them trust Ma and know she could rub them out once they are of no use to her anymore. They shake down local business for "protection" and do the occasional contract killings or rival take outs as ordered. However, Sonny sees their use to Ma waning and maybe it's time to cash themselves out before Ma does.

The world's top 1% aren't taking any chances. Robert and Roxy find out that Big City's wealthy fat cats plan to stash their money, gold and everything valuable in deep mines in the rural mountains outside the city. A convoy will take the treasure there and Ma wants to hijack it.

The problem is Barry Ling, rival Chinese Mafia leader also wants that convoy.

Sonny and Archie see an opportunity to also hit this convoy and be rid of Ma and take their dream early retirement.

Federal Agents Bean and his boss, Agent Tracey see the same opportunity and more. They use Evvy Hancock, a former Mafia moll who slept with all the head family bosses, as bait. Evvy has a motherly relationship to Sonny and Archie. She finds out that Bean and Tracey also plan to hit the convoy for their own purposes. However they want to catch Ma and Barry Ling as well which will cover for the lifting of some serious cash from the heist. They line their own pockets and are seen as heroes in a sting operation known as "Garlic and Gunpowder."

Evvy tips off Sonny and Archie, letting them know they're the bait to lure Ma and Ling into a trap. Sonny and Archie form a counter sting plan that involves a down on his luck, one handed birthday party clown and a possible male porn star.

Sonny, Archie, Evvy, Ma, Willy, Robert, Roxy, Bean, Tracey, the porn star and a clown all converge in one place to hit the rich convoy heading toward the mountain mines.

Each person has their plan...which one wins out? Do Sonny and Archie marry some "nice girls" their mothers fixed them up with and head to Italy or does the comet close it all down?

Bets are placed...

Death House

Synopsis:

The Death House is the Area 51 of Evil...a subterranean government facility that holds humanity’s worst on nine levels. Hell...Dante’s ninth level, holds the Five Evils...the “dark stars” of Death House. These individuals are so heinous they can never walk among society again.

They may also be supernatural.

Agents Toria Boon and Jae Novak have their own dark pasts, arriving at Death House to tour its levels and observe its denizens first hand as well as the medical and mental experiments of Drs. Eileen Fletcher and Karen Redmane. Their depraved experiments date back to the Nazi doctors of WW II.

Prison cells are virtual reality holo decks that recreate prisoner environments before they were incarcerated. A special hallucinogenic gas keeps inmates under control. The victims are homeless bused into Death House to play literal victims while killing habits are studied. The results are sick, but only a hint of what goes on here.

Hell literally breaks loose inside the facility when an EMP device detonates, killing all power and communication and...releasing every prisoner. Boon, Novak and Fletcher are caught in a race against advancing prisoner hoards led by occultist Neo-Nazi Sieg. The monsters are freed and they’re going down.

Boon and Novak’s fight through Death House turns into a house of horrors gauntlet with the only hope of escape is descending into Hell and the help of The Five Evils. Events culminate in a violent face to face standoff with absolute evil…only to find that they have traveled down a rabbit hole and through a looking glass. Black is white and white is black and the definitions of good and evil no longer apply…

Who are the monsters? Who will escape...
