I haven't heard much about these, but wanted to start a thread for them.

Tonight, a new comet is going to appear and everyone in his building is getting ready for a party to celebrate the event. There’s even an apocalypse theory going around.
As the night falls, Chris starts to discover that people are acting strange – and it seems to somehow be connected to the comet. People are becoming disoriented and violent and it doesn’t take long before they start mutating into something from beyond this world. In a fight for survival, Chris has to try to escape from his building with the help from some other tenants – but will they make it out alive?

As they seek shelter in an uncharted village another, invisible, threat comes out from the desert -- the Djinns. As their ranks are decimated, they'll face the longest night of their lives.
Humains: A group of researchers travels to the Swiss Alps to investigate a scientific discovery that could bring the whole of human evolution into question. The trip turns into a nightmare when their minibus crashes to the bottom of a gully. Lost in the midst of the mountains, the group must organize itself to survive.

She’s now married to the psychiatrist who healed her psychological wounds and is the mother of an adorable little girl. Yanka has also found employment with the police department. While her line of work may at times be trying, she nonetheless lives a peaceful and pleasant life, allowing her to leave her painful past behind. That is, until it returns to haunt her.
A series of vicious murders obligates her to tenaciously pursue a sadistic killer. As the mutilated bodies pile up at a fearful rate, she realizes that the clues the murderer leaves behind are directed at her. She’s convinced that the monster she spawned so long ago is back. It seems to be reaching out for her with the intention of beginning the horror anew—the only possibility is that it seeks to reproduce.
