Tormenting the Hen

2017 - 77 minutes

Meticulously crafted exercise in filmmaking.
— Don Simpson (Hammer to Nail)
Well-acted and seductively shot, it’s mysterious and magnetic.
— Besty Sherman (The Arts Fuse)
A taut thriller combined with a lightweight sense of realism...
Laden with opportunities to weaponize any and all words.
— Kevin Rakestraw (Film Pulse)
Nerve Jangling freekout.
— Sean Burns (Boston Reel)

-----------------

When playwright Claire is invited to set her latest political work at a rural theatre company, her fiance Monica tags along for a much-needed vacation.

Upon encountering Mutty, an enigmatic neighbor with a gross lack of social boundaries, Monica's hope for a quiet vacation, and perhaps her very sanity, are thrown into utter jeopardy.
