COMPLEX! An Original Murder-Mystery written and produced by Stereo Argento for The Stud Stage!

A Mysterious, Black-Gloved Killer is loose in the building and is out for BLOOD!
Watch in HORROR as our tenants drop like flies at the hands of this knife-wielding lunatic!

Our team recognizes that women have limited representation in the production of cinema, within the festival circuit, as well as on screen. Each Stereo Argento, we will be donating a percentage of the door to different women-in-film programs/festivals/institutions to offer equal opportunity to female genre-filmmakers and to advocate for diversity in film and the representations of women in horror.

Forever Yours in Gore,
Meredeath + Jillian Gnarling
