In a twisted story of co-dependence, a pair of estranged sisters are pitted against each other by an abhorrent leech creature that uses its mind-controlling influence to puppeteer them from the inside out.

KILL YOUR LOVER / Feature Film
Kill Your Lover is a toxic relationship horror feature film where "Blue Valentine" meets the "The Fly" in a psychological drama with a punk edge and skin-crawling body horror.
When Dakota tries to break off her toxic relationship with Axel, it starts transforming him into a monstrous creature with increased aggression, a touch that melts skin and worst of all, he’s contagious...
KILL YOUR LOVER promises tense horror sequences, heartbreaking interpersonal drama and creative kills. This film is the epitome of 'death by a thousand cuts'.
ISOLATION / Feature Film
Bloody Disgusting. Celebrated premieres at Frightfest & Screamfest 2021.

ISOLATION weaves together nine standalone, yet interconnected, horror stories from all corners of the world. It follows people as they confront their biggest fears in attempts to survive an increasingly deadly pandemic.
