Shane and Leah are both in the publishing world, but that seems to be the one thing they have in common. Shortly after they arrive at their already fraught honeymoon at a [naturally] isolated cabin in the woods, they receive an unexpected visit from a self-described inventor and his blowsy wife who arrive with a hackneyed blackmail plan. Both funny and foreboding, the film builds a keen sense of dread that has a considerable payoff.
A Glass Eye Pix production, Crumb Catcher is the feature debut from director Chris Skotchdopole, a frequent Larry Fessenden collaborator; Skotchdopole co-wrote with Fessenden and star Rigo Garay. – Caitlin Hughes
