A Deer Caught in the Headlights

A woman'a night turns sinister when she fears the charming stranger she went home with has very different intentions. 

A Deer Caught in the Headlights is a psychological thriller about a lonely woman who decides to spend the night with the charming stranger she met that evening. Unsure about what she wants from him she stops his sexual advances, ultimately revealing dangerously repressed emotions hidden deep underneath his cool, indifferent facade. Jane fears for her life, as things quickly turn black. 


In its core it's a deeply philosophical movie about disconnect, loneliness and misinterpretation leading to disastrous outcomes. A character study about complex characters unable to relate, stuck in their own minds. This film was co-produced with Zeg Maar Films.
