Logline: 
A recluse observes increasingly disturbing activities in her apartment corridor through the peephole in her door, till finally she ventures out for a closer look.
Synopsis/Details: 

A young woman’s hermit-like existence is supplemented by endless hours spent viewing the comings and goings of others through the peephole in her apartment door.

Life passes uneventfully, but soon the activities within her 120 degree fish-eye viewpoint become increasingly disturbing, and not only because some passersby seem to have become aware that she’s watching them.

Finally, late one night, when all is dark and quiet, the woman’s curiosity gets the better of her and she ventures forth.

Influenced by Lynch’s "Eraserhead", Polanski’s “Repulsion”, and maybe my own nightmares and imagination, I think you'll enjoy this vexing but distinctly non-gory, non-violent, non-profane horror tale.

The Writer: Steve Garry

I wrote my first screenplay in 2008, at the age of 52. It was a surprise, yet predicable too, for composition was my favorite subject in my earliest years of elementary school. But somewhere between the ages of 10 and 52, I must have felt that writing wasn't a serious or possibly an attainable career. My writing methodology is unique because I use many of the same skills I used for decades as a software programmer. The stories must be both "logical" and "bug free". Oh, and hopefully, thought-provoking, entertaining, suspenseful, or humorous, often in the same script, with captivating characters and story lines, especially given the complex themes I often take on in my work.
