The House Hunt


The House Hunt is a heart-pounding and claustrophobic “what would you do” thriller about a young couple who are selling their recently renovated dream house and what happens when the woman, Lucy, agrees to show a potential buyer around their home who refuses to leave.

Your estate agent calls.

She’s running late and needs you to show a man around your home.

You let him in and begin the tour.

But something about him feels wrong…

You ask him to leave and he refuses.

Then he tells you something about you. Something inconceivable.

And then you realize…

He doesn’t want your house. He wants YOU.
