The 9-minute short cleverly ratchets up the tension between the two men as Brian becomes unhinged. As the climax approaches, you’ll probably realize a twist is coming...but you won’t guess it.
There is an incredible tension that arises when you can’t trust your partner, and when that partner can’t trust themselves. Kept Man does an excellent job of mining that tension and transmuting into a more subtle fear that builds through each scene.
Love is a little spookier this time of year. In a new YouTube Halloween short film, Jake (Wilson Cleveland) must take care of his boyfriend Brian when he begins losing his grip on reality.
