'The Horned Man', an independent 10-15 minute student film – is a psychological horror exploring the impact of social pressures on men to be a 'real man', and the toll it takes on both men and women.

Production: Unemployed, depressed, and ashamed that he isn't living up to preconceived notions of masculine 'success' as a financial provider, a dominant figure in his relationship with HANNAH, and a father - GARETH begins to feel watched and judged as he struggles to find a job.
Under the influence of a horrific, primeval figure of masculine strength - The GREEN MAN - Gareth's reflection begins to act independently, living out toxic fantasies of masculine dominance over women. As these fantasies bleed out of the mirror and into the real world, affecting Gareth's real-world behavior, Hannah begins to wonder if she might be in danger.

GARETH

Initially a relatable everyone figure, Gareth is like every other man trying to feel in control of his life despite his powerlessness in the modern world. He is not particularly outgoing, is emotionally fragile and gives up easily. He tries to do the right thing, and he loves his wife, Hannah; but he is quick to take offense, and nurses his grievances against those who - in his mind - are keeping him down.
