The Lachrymist (2014)
In a single take, a young man disappears from a hotel causing his wife to begin questioning not only the staff, but her own sanity.- Written by Anonymous
A young, newlywed couple has stopped to stay in a hotel in their cross country travels. They are madly in love and have chosen to run away from their families who do not approve of the match. On the second morning of their stay, the young bride discovers that she is pregnant. Wanting a special setting to break the news to her husband, she decides to go down to the hotel lobby to buy a newspaper and look for events or nice local restaurants. Once there, she is told by a strangely brusque desk woman that the newspaper box can be found outside. When the young woman steps outside to check, there is no newspaper box. Abandoning the search, the young bride returns inside. When she tries to travel back up to her room, her key card does not work in the elevator. She asks a different desk woman for help and is informed that her key card is not registered to any room and neither is her name. The newlywed woman suggests asking the other desk woman that she spoke to before, but the desk staff deny knowledge of her. She demands the manager takes her up to her room and after much arguing, the manager complies. When they reach her room though, she finds that not only that have her husband and their luggage disappeared, but the entire room is changed. The wallpaper, curtains and furniture are all different. She becomes frantic and security chases her from the hotel. The story ends as she hides from the security guards behind a dumpster in an alley, crying and alone.- Written by Mallory O'Meara
