The Bad Samaritan

The Bad Samaritan from bill kandiliotis on Vimeo. Shooting for this test movie began in 1999 and finished in 2000. It was made in an effort to experiment with story structure and visual style. Now it has gone back to script stage and is now a first draft. I'll be soon developing it further. Here’s the current synopsis thus far.


Mark is a hard working and well-heeled businessman who takes a well earned day off work. However, the day turns sour when he is ambushed by two aggressive hoodlums who leave his battered torso for dead. tbs2But afterwards a more tragic and sinister twist takes place when a callous and murderous scoundrel called John comes across the unconscious Mark.tbs4 Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, John lumps the unconscious body in the boot of Mark's luxury sedan.tbs5 Anxious to extort Mark for all he can, John tortures him for financial gain ...and sadistic joy. Bound up and blindfolded in the boot of his own sedan Mark struggles to be defiant and unsurrenderous.tbs6 tbs7 But even sour days can have the sweetest outcome as John finds himself exposed to Mark's very inner and dark secret.tbs3
