Dark Comedy Horror Feature Film. Written and directed by myself and based heavily on personal experiences EGOMANIAC blurs the line is between fact and fiction.
Catherine Sweeney is determined to make her zom-rom-com but everyone keeps telling her to put a talking dog in the script if she wants success. Desperate for funding, Catherine does whatever it takes to get her passion project made... But too much compromise can kill.

'Every now and then a truly special film comes along; one that you can feel has had the director’s heart and soul poured into it. One that puts a massive smile on your face and has you laughing out loud, despite it being inherently quite disheartening. Egomaniac is one of those films.’ Scream Magazine
'Very funny and very sharp, but with some moments of Spaced-esque wonderful silliness, this is a hilarious comedy with teeth and we recommend it.’ SciFi Now
'EGOMANIAC is one of the best independent horror films of the year.' Daily Grindhouse
EGOMANIAC - THE MOBILE GAME
Egomaniac has been turned into a mobile app game which has been created by Feature Games and is available to download for free on IOS and Android via the app store.
EGOMANIAC is a morally charged, narrative-adventure game with a Killer Concept. You’re Fresh out of film-school and set to make your independant debut feature film. Only one catch. You can’t finance it. In the game Egomaniac, you will need to barter Compromise Points (or CP) against your Sanity Meter, to keep enough money to stay alive, but sane enough to not end up behind bars. Can you handle the sleazy producers, the dodgy distributors and the nasty, backstabbing world of the indie filmmaker?
