Home Movie

Synopsis: Documents one family's descent into darkness, using a compilation of found home-made footage. In the remote woods of upstate New York, the Poe family lives a Norman Rockwell life. Perfect house. Perfect marriage. If only the children stopped stapling frogs to trees. Something is very wrong with Jack and Emily Poe, the ten-year old twins. And, to stop them, their parents must enter the nightmare of their minds. The only question is: who will survive the night?
Director(s): Christopher Denham

- I'm not an elitist.

- You're an elitist.

Kiss me, elitist.

Mmm, this cheese isn't bad.

- Are you seducing me?

- Huh-uh, I would never do such a thing.

Well, um, it's too bad for you.

I can't have sex right now

because I have a lot of work to do.

- You always have work to do.

- Yeah, so we have money to spend.

- Right.

- # Money to spend. #


Isn't this how

the Paris Hilton video got started?

No, I think it was...

Oh, you... bastard!

Oh, where's my towel?!


You are dead!

- You are so bad.

- Bad...

do you mean like

"bad good" or "bad bad"?

I mean like bad,

nasty, evil bad.

You're supposed to be

a pastor, you know.

Yeah, I'm Lutheran,

not a Catholic.

Well, I am a doctor,

not a whore.

Say happy anniversary

- to the camera, will you?

- No.

So we have something

to remember when we're old,

decrepit and farting

all over each other.

We're not gonna be farting

all over each other. That's disgusting!

We're gonna be farting

all over each other.

We're gonna die

in a conflagration of farts.

- Yeah, your farts.

- Somebody's gonna light a match

and we're gonna go...

Not my farts.

Come on, say happy anniversary

to the camera for posterity's sake.

Happy anniversary. And now

you can take the camera out of here

because it is supposed to be for my work

because I've spent a lot of money on it.

I thought it was supposed

to be soft-core porn?


- I can't believe...

- I can't believe how sexy you are.

Take your clothes off.

I thought you'd never ask!

Get in here.

Is that the dog?

- Why does he always do this?

- Hegel, fermez la bouche.


please, with the camera.

I feel like I'm on

"The Real World" or something.

"The Real World"?

Where's Emily?

Oh, isn't that

the most precious thing?
