Under the Stairs (2011)

I was the director and one of the producers of Under the Stairs. This was the first of Kieran McGowan's scripts that was brought to life by our collective team, Imbroglio Films. We filmed the movie in six days, with one of those days having more than 65 extras. We raised the budget of just under $10,000 through a very successful Indie Go Go campaign. The film was shot on a Canon 5D Mk 2.

New to the neighborhood, eight-year-old Jack makes his lonely way home from school to arrive at an empty house as the sun goes down. One evening, Jack discovers a creature living in the darkness under the basement stairs - a creature with a sinister rasp and glowing eyes.

The creature asks for Jack's help: it is alone, it is hungry... and it knows his name.
