Private Project

Mystery Solved

As his town falls upon the 20th anniversary of its most notorious serial killer’s murder spree, Oliver reluctantly attends a murder mystery party at the former home of the very same killer. But as the night turns to more murder than mystery, it becomes clear that the killer, who disappeared 20 years ago, has come back to finish what he started...
And he wants his house back.

Director Statement

This film is a completely independently made labor of love that I wrote, directed, acted in, scored the music for, and did the entirety of post-production on myself. Our cast is a hilarious ensemble who you will not believe are first time actors. We are so proud of what we created together, and we hope you have as much fun watching it as we did making it!
