Private Project


In this bone-chilling film, we follow the story of a widow who must confront the demons of her past when she is forced to spend a night alone with her deceased husband's body. Accused of his murder by her vengeful in-laws, she must prove her innocence by completing a night-long ritual in which she is watched over by her husband's corpse. But as the night wears on, she begins to experience terrifying visions of her late husband's violence.

Haunted by his vengeful spirit, she is pushed to the brink of madness as she is forced to confront the truth about their relationship and the events that led to his death. As the night progresses, the widow realizes that her husband's spirit will not rest until it has exacted its own brand of justice on her.

Filled with suspense, terror, and unexpected twists, this horror film takes viewers on a journey into the darkest corners of the human psyche, exploring the horrors that can exist in even the most seemingly idyllic relationships. Will the widow be able to survive the night and clear her name, or will she become the next victim of her husband's malevolent spirit?
