Tom Hits His Head

The Short

Tom needs help. Ever since he hit his head, he’s been getting dizzy spells and seeing the devil in his bathtub. This comedic short chronicles a not-so-funny time in the filmmaker's own life, when he spent six months afraid to leave his own house, ordering a HAZMAT suit off of eBay and believing he was the Antichrist. This visceral look at one man's struggle to keep his sanity should ring true with anyone who has ever uttered those painful words: "What's wrong with me?"
