Home Invasion

Date: 9 Mar 2018

An obsessive Paula Abdul fan auditions for American Idol in an attempt to impress her hero.

A young girl named Sam enters a relationship with her mechanic, Anthony, and cultivates a dangerous obsession with brutally confronting his wife, Carol.

Carol, meanwhile, has reoccurring dreams in which a ghostly Jon Benét Ramsey visits her, prophesying about the future.

Disturbing and humorous, Christopher Bryant’s Home Invasion explores celebrity infatuation and our culture’s obsession with violent acts by weaving together three incidents from real life.

Alexander Berlage directs. Chloe Bayliss, Kate Cheel, Yure Covich, Wendy Mocke, Cecilia Morrow and Morgan Maguire feature.
