Because Reasons, Opportunity and Boredom

They have no guilt.  We do.  They are intelligent.  We're schmucks.  They are master manipulators.  We're suckers for kind words and a smile.  The psychopath!  In my 25 years as an FBI agent, I studied psychopaths.  All the advantages are theirs.  They are church deacons.  They are computer programmers.  They are school teachers.  Oh yes, even more alarming, they stand behind you in line at Costco. They are at reception when you sign into a hotel or for a doctor's appointment. They seize opportunity.  Hence, a My Little Rascal Productions short horror film(15 minutes), "Because Reasons." 
Tiffany and an unfortunate schmuck (Shawn Shillingford)
Tiffany (Krista West), on this particular day, goes on a murderous rampage.  She doesn't look like a monster; in fact she is quite attractive.  Everyone who sees her desires either pre-marital or extra-marital sex with  her.  Like most psychopaths, she is a bit of a prude when it comes to morals, and making people die for their sins is her hang-up on this day.  She'll, very calmly, explain her mindset and her thought processes.  You males out there will, before being horrified by her, be attracted to her perkiness and simple beauty.
The beautiful psychopath
Since "Because Reasons" only spans 15 minutes, I'll be brief on the plot.  Alluring, sexy, playful...deadly.  As we watch and listen to this evil vixen, it is apparent that she could end up offing a couple dozen schmucks.  Like many psychopaths, sex and the pursuit of sex seem to drive her.  All kinds of sex.
 Pastor Bev (Adela-Adriana Moscu)
 A bit of comedy, lots of horror, and some titillating allure will be thrown at you in a very short period of time.  Isaac Thorne's understanding of what makes up a psychopath is spot on.  Fortunately this is a work of fiction, though deep in the bowels of the Behavioral Science Unit (I've been there) at Quantico, Virginia, may be files that chronicle the activities and conquests of devils like Tiffany.  Oh yes, consider this a cautionary tale...and remember, in 2017, there have ever been more psychopaths on the prowl on this planet.  Not for the squeamish (the gore f/x are gratuitous), enjoy "Because Reasons" (directed by Roger Glass).  For more information about this work, visit the links below. This screenplay was written by Joseph Sorrentino and adapted from a story by Isaac Thorne.

  1. So glad to see my buddy Isaac get a movie made out of his short story like Joe Lansdale & Bubba Ho-Tep. This sounds like a terrific short. Solid review, Christopher.

  2. Thank you for the review Chris!
    Your keen understanding of the insanity within [ some ] of us made this a great read. We appreciate once again taking the time and effort to review our collab with issac Thorne.
