GENRE: Psychological Triller/Neo-noir
People today associate psychopaths with murderers and cannibals but they walk among us: they are CEOs, lawyers, Civilservants, police officers even clergymen. Many assume that a target of a psychopath is undereducated, poor and vulnerable, but intelligent and successful women are not excluded from a psycho’s path of destruction.
They say that 1 out of 5 women in NYC have dated a psychopath.
I sincerely hope this movie sheds light on the tricks that these con man use on their unknowing victims. As the director, I aim to make a hyper stylized film that harkens to the cinematic traditions of film noir from deep focus, low-key lighting, stark contrast and narrational devices. I have no doubt that this film is going to captivate audiences with it stylish but modern mise-se-scene, hardboiled dialogue and dark suspense.
