Caved In

Drew, a criminal jack-of-all-trades, is in need of money and a way out. Her handler offers her a job no one else will touch, a delivery. When some of Drew's unresolved anger issues rear their ugly heads, the delivery becomes a murder. As Drew waits for the body to be picked up, and she closes her eyes to rest, she hears a knock from the trunk.

Director Statement

Horror is historically such a diverse genre, and I always aim to uphold that diversity and representation in my work, both on the page and on both sides of the lens.
