Short film Written and Directed by Colin Mowbray

Short Synopsis.

An intellectually challenged man discovers the cause of his problem is a parasite living inside his head.

Long Synopsis.

Spazz is not too bright, but ignorance is bliss. He spends his days drinking at the pub with a bunch of layabouts who revel in making Spazz the butt of all jokes. Suddenly blood starts oozing from Spazz's nose, then his eyes and his ears. His "friends" rush him to a doctor and dump him before heading back to their beers. The doctor investigates and discovers that living inside Spazz's cranium, is a massive leech! It seems the monster insect has been feeding off Spazz's nervous system for about fifteen years. The doctor lures the parasite out and a fog is lifted from Spazz's mind. He can see, hear and think more clearly. Spazz is reborn.
