The Housemate From Hell

The Housemate from Hell (script) is a short film I made in the final year of my Film & Video Degree. It’s a dark comedy about how a lack of communication and suppressed emotions lead to antagonism. It also uses the device of the untrustworthy narrator (inspired by the Doctor Who episode Love & Monsters): clues being spread throughout that contradict the narrator’s story.

Synopsis 

Cleanly and organised, James is a peaceful, heavenly soul. But when Mike, a slobby party animal, moves in, a war begins with the housemate from hell.
