Whilst escaping a mysterious stalker, Jennifer retreats to her apartment where she soon discovers that the thing she is running from is more terrifying than she'd ever imagined. Watch as her fragile state of mind sends her into a downward spiral of unimaginable paranoia.

SPIRAL pays tribute to classic horror films such as; KWAIDAN by Masaki Kobayashi, SUSPIRIA by Dario Argento, and PSYCHO by Alfred Hitchcock.

This film will allow the audience to become a subjective character within the plot and identify with the protagonist's psychotic turmoil. The intricate thematic premise of the film is heightened more so by the complexity and intensity of the visuals and the absence of dialogue.
