Storyline

Slumlord is a narrative dark comedy short film that takes us on a reckless journey through a day in the life of Scott Roberts, a luckless gambler. Beaten and humiliated by a tall and scary man named Gary, Scott has two choices: sweet-talk his mom out of twenty G's, or grab his wife and run like hell. Scott comes across an opportunity for some quick cash, working as an apartment manager. Easier said than done. He finds himself protégé to Kalis Muhn, a sociopathic slumlord determined to push Scott to the limit and beyond. Between a trial by hammer, man-sized "dog" graves, and a three-story fall, Scott discovers there's no such thing as rock bottom. Written by Daniel L. Sullivan & Justin S. Monroe

Slumlord a fun ride.
13 March 2006 | by (Los Angles, CA) – See all my reviews

Slumlord is one of those movies that gets in your brain and won't let go. It tells the story of Scott Roberts, a gambler down on his luck, pursued by his bookie, Gary. Scott is forced to run and gets a job managing an apartment complex for a mysterious figure, Kalis Muhn. Scott is the typical wise-guy, with the heart of coal. He bounces perfectly off the hard-nosed Kalis Muhn.

Gwen is Scott's wife and she's not a typical housewife. She's all firecracker, doesn't take sass from anyone or anything.

Clearly, Mr. Sullivan and Mr. Monroe (the writers) have graduated from the School of Tarantino when it comes to their edgy, hard-boiled style of writing.

The only really bad thing about Slumlord was that it had to end. That's the one big problem here. The end left me unfulfilled, but at the same time, I guess that's a good thing. Always leave 'em wanting more, right? I'm hoping that this isn't the last time we see Scott Roberts and Kalis Muhn on the screen. Or Gwen, of course.
