Director Statement

Taking inspiration from the American and English suburbs we grew up in, we wanted to create a fictional, stylized world based around just that. EVERYBODY NEEDS SOME(dead)BODY was the accumulation of our joint love of dark comedy, the surrealness in everyday life, and the desire to create a world that couldn’t be time-stamped.
