STORY

          Phyllis Brooks is beautiful, dutiful and bored. When she first met Daniel, she loved his quirky, nerdy ways.  After a brief courtship, she married him and was the contented Los Angeles housewife. He works at a computer company and pays the bills. She stays home. But now it and he are driving her nuts. It’s not only his introversion, but he won’t drive a car and his idea of fun is sitting at home watching wildlife channels.

          Fed up, Phyllis grows increasingly antagonist toward Daniel’s attempts to romance her. His empty promises to change just ring hollow. When Phyllis looks at him dressed in stripped shirts and too short ties, she wonders how she ended up with this escapee from a Pee-wee Herman movie.

          Phyllis has no family of her own and doesn’t even have a relationship with Daniel’s family so she’s pleasantly surprised when he suggests they have dinner with his estranged twin brother, Murphy. At the last minute Daniel cancels because he’s working late, but Phyllis and Murphy meet anyway. Murphy’s charming, exciting sex appeal are too much for lonely Phyllis to resist.  Her new daytime hobby becomes making love with Murphy while Daniel is at work. The only person who sees him Murphy coming and going is the neighbor boy, Brandon, but Phyllis assures him that he’s just as clueless as Daniel.

After nearly a year, Phyllis confides to Murphy she’s ready to leave Daniel and that if he’s killed – there’s over a million dollars stashed somewhere in the house for the taking. Murphy initially questions his lover’s loyalty but like any shady, greedy sibling, he moves past his doubts and agrees to make his brother disappear forever.

About The Project

Uh-Oh is a suspense drama with an unexpected twist reminiscent of the classic television anthology series, The Twilight Zone, in that its conclusion will challenge the viewer’s belief on what’s morally right or wrong. It may make you wonder: Can you trust anyone anymore?

We’re all familiar with these clichés:

​​

  • The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

  • Dance with the one that brought you.

  • Things are not what they appear.

This juicy tale of common cheating deception will bring all of those clichés to mind. But, with its blend of suspense with a few steamy love scenes, it creates a little something extra for fans of drama who like to see a little spice mixed in as an unthinkable deed unfolds. It begs the question: How far would you go to what you want and when you get it – now what? 

This debut short feature is written by Senuwell Smith who also edited and directed the film. Uh-Oh is a high concept film with a very low budget.

Beautifully shot by director of photography Kristian Gabriel, it also assembled a stellar cast of newcomers Guy D. Williams and Shellie Sterling. It also features new upcoming young performer, Tre’ Alexander Webb.

This is the first short film from 2CHi Entertainment
