Him Indoors

RUN-TIME: 11 minutes

Gregory Brewster (Reece Shearsmith) is a serial killer, only problem is, he’s agoraphobic! Facing an impending eviction from his family home, Gregory has a plan that will save him from being subjected to the one thing he’s terrified of most… the outside world. Things don’t quite go to plan however, when a surprise visit from his rather enthusiastic new neighbour, Lizzie (Pollyanna McIntosh) finds him in a very awkward situation.
