Karen gets a strange call in the dead of night - police believe her husband, Gareth, is in the area, maybe even in the house. The line is bad and as it's the day of her husband's funeral, Karen hangs up, putting it down to a sick joke. That's when she hears the sound in the ensuite. Moments later she's confronted by the terrifying truth: Gareth is back and he blames her for his death.

Will the woman calling herself DS Styx call back? Will Karen be able to escape or convince Gareth to go back to the other side?

A Horror, infused with black humour and an original premise, 'Dead Romantic' goes into production in 2020.
