Consumed (2013)

Consumed observes one woman’s overpowering addiction. The kind covered up with charm and hospitality… until night comes. Until guests go to sleep. Until this woman’s needs cannot remain unaddressed.


Dark, mysterious, and decidedly odd, this film stars Amalia Vitali, Katerina Stearman, and Graham Vanas – also the star of Unusuality’s award-winning short film Room Service.


In the English countryside, in an inn that stands alone at the outer edge of a near-forgotten forest, and the end of a long, gravelly road – it’s clear something isn’t quite right. To outsiders, it gives no indication. Bramble House is come to be viewed by many in the region as the perfect place for a private party, a romantic getaway, a weekend retreat.


The landlady of Bramble House is, it can be said… different, quirky. She rambles, chatters and hovers, solicitous but… sometimes too solicitous.

The something not quite right is her. The proprietor is consumed by a need…for what? Her behavior, though, both draws you in and sends a shiver up your spine. Still, people come to Bramble House. They never know what happened there the time before.


There are places where humour hits you just as trepidation has loosened its grip. Where the landlady loses control, regains it… but it’s only temporary. Where the viewer wants to yell to visitors, “run!” – while also uttering quietly, “No, stay.”


Bramble House is a gorgeous, eerie and edgy paradox, a home whose recent history is never told, resting there unexamined amid the promise of pleasures just inside its doors.


The landlady has an addiction that has mastered her. The mystery comes in who pays the price.
