Hi all. I've been looking for the name of this short for some time now, and would love it if you guys could lead me in the right direction.
My roommate and I watched this free on demand in 2008 or 2009, and I think it was from fearnet. It was about 20-30 minutes long, about a young couple who moves into a neighborhood which seems perfect, but the movie quickly takes a stepford wives/neighborhood watch quality. The place is too perfect, and once there, they're not allowed to leave, their every move is watched, etc. One of the notable characters is their neighbor, a man in his 50s (I think) who it turns out once tried to escape and lost his leg in the process. He is forced to stay and put on a happy face.
The couple slowly begins to realize the horror of their situation and makes plans to escape with their newborn; however they are separated in the attempt and by the time the husband reunites with his wife, he realizes that he is too late, and she has already been brainwashed. The movie ends with the husband sitting by an upstairs window, bitterly watching his wife greet a new couple to the neighborhood. The camera pans out and reveals that the husband is in a wheelchair--they have destroyed his legs in order to prevent him from leaving.
I remember loving this short film and want to watch it again, if only I could find it, or at the very least, it's name. This is my first time posting, so if there are some guidelines I'm not abiding by, or if there's somewhere else I should be asking this, please let me know. I appreciate all the help! Thanks!
