While vacationing at his aunt Diane’s secluded country home, Jack soon finds out she has imprisoned her daughter Alice under suspicion of a dangerous mental illness. Jack elicits the help of two young women aiding in Diane’s bible-studies to uncover the truth about his cousin’s captivity, and is entangled in a struggle to preserve innocence that might only be skin deep.

About the Production: It’s been seven years from film-school to making my first feature. I’ve dedicated my life to being a filmmaker, for better or worse. Alice In The Attic is my validation in a way, but more than that it is my beginning. It’s my creation of a macabre sort of fairy-tale, with the “what if’s” trampled into reality. To explore themes of innocence, evil, religion. In a way that thrills and engages the audience. To reflect aspects of human nature and challenge them. That’s what I go through in making the movie. That’s what I love about cinema as a viewer.

Current Status: The movie is 90% shot – currently campigning to fund reshoots and post.
