Gothic romance meets terror in this short horror film…
inspired by a tale from Edgar Allen Poe!
Gwen is a lovely but lonely 20-something gal.
…who can’t seem to fall for the right guy.
Sure, she’s had some bad relationships in the past.
But she still hopes to find her own Prince Charming…
One night, she meets Mike in a local bar.
He’s funny, handsome, and is a real gentleman.
Seduced by his romantic nature, Gwen goes home with Mike to the Victorian era mansion he is remodeling.
It’s a lovely old place, and though definitely in need of some TLC, she is intrigued as they approach the front steps…
The night air is full of romance and possibility.
To her surprise, a relationship blossoms…
One, two, three perfect dates shortly follow, with an amazing physical chemistry between the two.
Gwen has long red nails, and Mike practically worships them. She enjoys his near worshipful adoration, the comforts of his lavish home and delicious rare wine.
Gwen is smitten.
Her only small complaint is that she sleeps poorly in Mike’s house, due to strange scratching noises at night.
Mike & Gwen chalk it up to animals in the attic…
Plus, it’s an old wooden house, and it’s settling after all.
Finally, she’s found a man she can be herself around, and not constantly worry about whether or not she’s pleasing him… No little noises at night are going to come between them.
The perfect man, the perfect wine, and a house to die for.
It’s as though she’s in a fantastic dream where time stands still – in Mike’s house, their love will last forever…
If she can just get past all the remodeling he’s doing to the place.
But they both will quickly learn that with Inner Beauty, it’s what’s inside that counts.
