Narrative Short Thriller: THE HOUSEWIFE

Never underestimate a mother.

This dark thriller – about a disillusioned stay-at-home mother who must rely on her own skills and ingenuity to survive when she and her son are kidnapped – marks award-winning director Jeremiah Kipp’s (SLAPFACE, BLACK WAKE) first foray into the thriller genre after a long and successful career directing horror features.

The script is written by Sundance Screenwriters Lab finalist and New York Times bestselling author Kelly A. Turner, who also stars in the film. THE HOUSEWIFE short film is a proof-of-concept for Turner’s feature script of the same name. The film was produced by three female producers in addition to having a female first assistant director. 


OPEN-ENDED TICKET was a finalist for the Sundance Screenwriting Competition and award-winning director Shonali Bose is now attached to direct!
