Troubled since birth, agoraphobic Jane develops a new hobby when she finds a book about serial killers in her closet.



Short Summary

Jane's resentful twin sister, Sue, arrives to deliver groceries, then starts scolding Jane about taking care of herself and doing therapy, while complaining that's probably why their mother disappeared.

Sue forces Jane into the bathroom to take a shower. They tussle and Jane pushes Sue into the shower, breaking her leg. Sue dissolves under the acid-spray of the shower, while Jane watches. Then Jane collects her teeth out of the strainer, because the teeth never dissolve.

Development Pitch

Flash-fiction Twenty-Seven (492 words), could be a single episode in a crime series or developed further into a full-length crime film. Agoraphobic Jane has been pushed around by her family forever. But when they move her into a new place—previously occupied by a serial killer—Jane finds a book and then develops a new hobby: Luring people into an acid shower and collecting their teeth. With the landlord, her therapist, and her mother all dissolved away, Jane has one victim left: her twin sister. From this point, the short story can be developed into a full-length film. Agoraphobic, Jane has disability for income, a phone to order food, and the internet to lure more victims into her home. As a crime film, the mysterious disappearances of her victims would be a tough crime to solve because Jane never leaves her home, and the only evidence is the jar of teeth she keeps well hidden. The detective would need to figure out that everyone went to Jane's house at some point. But Jane is just a harmless shut-in, right?
