Shiny New World

Do you want to work at Shiny New World – the cleaning company that cleans locations where demons have shaken things up?

Fifty-year-old Barry is a special kind of cleaner: he cleans crime scenes where demons have wreaked havoc. While making a corporate film about his work, a normal working day for Barry gets out of hand in a bloody way.


The short film Shiny New World smoothly and surprisingly introduces the insane world of Shiny New World, a feature film with the same name which is currently in development. The combination of ink-black humour and horror will make the film an unforgettable wild ride.
