This Canadian short deals with a paranoid boyfriend who becomes increasingly suspicious of his partner after returning home after 6 months.
The intensity of the situation is increased when he finds a large spider in the house and attempts to get rid of it.
Itsy Bitsy Spider provides a commentary on abusive relationships and the problem with keeping secrets from significant others. On its limited budget this is beautifully shot and while we are left with a slightly ambiguous conclusion but you cannot deny its ambition.
Itsy Bitsy Spider screened as part of the Soho Horror Film Festival – Pride Edition.
