The Web

: Narrative Short
GENRE: Horror
STATUS: Pre-Production


She knows 'everything' about you.


  A handsome man wakes up in a strange bed with a strange and beautiful girl. He soon finds out that she knows way too much about him and the horrible things she has done to his body...


 In the fall of 2015, I awoke from a startling dream. It was a very specific dream. A nightmare if you will. But, a good one. I sat down and wrote "The Web." In the vein of "Basic Instinct," "The Web" uses the male image as the victim. The female is the 'Monster.' Just how ghoulish can a human mind be? I wanted to present a very pschologically twisted 'patient' with a touch of the supernatural. Is she really capable, or is he really seeing this? Enjoy.
