Love Me If You Dare (2003)

The film begins in Liège in Belgium, where a little girl, Sophie, is being bullied by other children. Only a bus driver and a boy, Julien, help her collect her books that the others have thrown into a puddle.

To cheer Sophie up, Julien gives her a small tin box, a gift from his fatally ill mother. Because it is important to him, he asks her to lend it back to him from time to time. As Julien wants the box back at the moment he gave it to her, Sophie demands proof of how important it is to him. Julien disengages the handbrake of the bus without hesitation, and the bus full of children rolls down a hill. Their game has begun: the box changes its owner after each completed dare.

Julien and Sophie their odd competition they started as children; to outdo each other with daring and outrageous stunts, continues as adults. While they often act out to relieve one another's pain, their game might be a way to avoid the fact that they are truly meant for one another. The visual style is really neat with it changing as they age. While Julien and Sophie are children, the world is slightly fuzzy, and everything is bright and colorful. As they grow older, the film becomes sharper, and the color more realistic.

Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County (1998)

Filmed in a pseudo-documentary style, this story occurs after a mysterious blackout. The footage begins with what appears to be a normal home video of the McPherson family gathered for Thanksgiving dinner. (This footage is eventually interrupted with occasional "expert" interviews on the subjects of UFOs, alien abduction, and related topics.) After the electric power goes out during dinner, Kurt and Brian go outside to check the fuses; Tommy follows with his camera. After finding the fuses charred and partially melted, they head into the woods to investigate a transformer which is throwing sparks. A son goes out to investigate and captures footage of actual aliens. When the aliens follow him and his brothers back to their home, all hell breaks loose. It originally aired on UPN.

Phase IV (1974)

Due to unknown cosmic events, listed in "phases", ants have undergone rapid evolution and developed a hive mind. A scientific team begins investigating strange towers and geometrically perfect designs that ants have built in the desert. Except for one family, the local human population flees the strangely acting ants. Scientists James Lesko and Ernest Hubbs set up a computerized lab in a sealed dome located in an area of significant ant activity in Arizona. The ant colony and the scientific team, along with the holdout family, fight each other, though the ants are the more effective aggressors.
