In the Pines: The Uninvited

"The Uninvited" is the one-hour pilot for my spec horror anthology series concept I call "In the Pines." "The Uninvited" explores themes of memory, nostalgia, grief and loss, against the backdrop of war and violence. The series "In the Pines" will be similar in style to “Black Mirror” or “Cabinet of Curiosities” by following the pattern of introducing new characters in different worlds for each self-contained episode. Its theme will focus on how people create meaning through the connections they make with what is around them.

Episode Logline:
"When two American soldiers go off on a mission to an abandoned house in the Iraqi desert, what they find there makes them question reality itself."
