Crazy For You

The award-winning short film by James Moran

Starring Arthur Darvill & Hannah Tointon

It’s difficult to find love when you’re a serial killer – when Charlie meets the girl of his dreams, he has to keep that slight flaw a secret from her. Will true love win the day? Or will she become another of his unwitting victims? Crazy For You is a romantic-comedy-horror for anyone who has skeletons in their closet. Or dead bodies.

Crazy For You will is regularly screening on ShortsTV in North America, Europe and South Asia from late 2018.

Now available to buy or rent:

Also available as part of the anthology feature film, Minutes Past Midnight.


“…a much needed ray of sunshine, even if the main character has a penchant for killing people. Crazy For You is a refreshing, delightfully British take on the romantic horror comedy genre from one of the UK’s most sought-after screenwriters, James Moran” Horror Cult Films

“Wonderful… wicked dark sense of humour along with a stunning bright and vivid style.” UK Horror Scene

“James Moran’s sublime Crazy For You… is a twisted rom-com about a serial killer who gets an unfortunate urge to kill whenever confronted with polka dots.” Screen Daily

“A brilliantly observed romantic comedy that just happened to have a serial killer as its lead… a film that promises much from its creator.”
Horror Asylum
