              I was inspired by the way a car can steal the show. Think of iconic car chases in films- it's often about spectacle, and has little to do with advancing a narrative. And that's the way I think of these cars, as dead-end technologies, but also as high-performance machines which, f...or their audience, sought to reflect the spirit and attitudes of their time. -Matthew Porter Matthew Porter presents a portfolio of twenty-five images of old-school cars, captured in midair as they careen over city streets and highway intersections. Each photograph is a freeze-frame-a hypothetical film still from a pulp-fiction chase scene. The series seems, on one hand, to distill the essence of muscle-car Americana, a pop-cultural semaphore for the high-testosterone male persona. And yet, on the other, the subject-the all-American muscle car as antihero-is caught in an eternal state of suspended animation, while the various elements of the landscape in the background organize themselves around the edges of the frame. The resulting pictures are a hybrid of hyperreality and studied, topographic description, part bittersweet nostalgia and part ironic reinvention of a classic American trope.

              A mysterious hotel that shifts rooms. A forest filled with killer plants. More mutant bugs. At first, things seem to be back to normal for Kelly and her friends. James is lecturing everyone about proper hand washing, Abby is back to panicking about gymnastics, and Nick is the sam...e old goofball. But when James has a vision showing the whereabouts of the second Ark, their lives are once again thrown into chaos. At the Edania HQ they meet Gideon, an eccentric administrator of the organization who sends them to Soraya Woods, a place where Kelly and James know well. They soon realize that things aren't as quiet and tranquil as they remember. The woods have been overtaken by evil plants that attack if you get too close and insects that make the shadow mantises look like harmless butterflies. They eventually find themselves at a beautiful but rundown hotel in the middle of the woods. But things aren't at all what they seem. The two caretakers of the hotel seem a little too eager for them to stay, and there's something moving in the walls...

Nick and Abby are the new kids trying to escape their pasts. Their lives get flipped upside down when the unlikely group of friends ...are discovered by a mysterious woman that nobody else seems to notice.

But when a horde of mutant insects descends upon their school and starts sucking the energy out of their classmates, they suspect the woman may have been telling the truth. What's worse is that there's an even bigger predator lurking in the walls, just waiting to strike...
