"Dinner" is a short film that tells the troublingly amusing story of a skilled predator who preys on vulnerable young women, using an innocent dinner invitation as his lure.
Written and directed by screenwriter-filmmaker John Buchanan, the film is intended as an homage to Alfred Hitchcock and is inspired by the twisted adult short stories of the late British writer Roald Dahl.
NEWS UPDATE (October 19, 2013): "Dinner" has been named an official selection of the 5th annual 15 Minutes of Fame Film Festival in Cocoa Beach, FL. The November 9 screening will be the film's U.S. premiere.
