Jonathan is a middle-aged grounds keeper at a local theme park and suffers from a debilitating case of OCD. One day, his daily routine is disrupted by a surprise visitor in his basement: a beautiful young woman who, through a jarring turn of events, ends up dead. Jonathan panics and chooses not to report the dead girl. Instead, he invites her to dinner. Jonathan is happy to have a friend, until the police start closing in, and his mind, and the body of the girl, begins to decay. Written by Uncork'd Entertainment

Did You Know?


The neighbor who brings in food mentions cliff diving at a restaurant. That would imply it to be Casa Bonita, which is actually a real, theme based restaurant, resembling caves and villages inside the restaurant. There was one in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but closed a few years ago. The restaurant originated in Oklahoma City. One remains open in Lakewood, Colorado, and is mentioned several times in the show South Park. See more »

I loved it !
4 July 2017 | by wartsmynameSee all my reviews

Decay is such a good film. I saw it free online! I always end up regretting the 'free films' I watch in the graveyard hours but Decay is different. It is psychedelic but such a well made film.

Such a shame that it has a low rating here. It seems like a lot of folks haven't understood the reason 'Decay' has been made the way it is - the idea is to really get into the skin of the character, to understand his past and present issues. I felt instantly drawn to the main lead, I felt sympathetic towards him. This doesn't happen very often and Decay makes you feel for the guy. I loved it. There are reasons for the uncomfortable and repetitive nature of scenes. This is how it is living with severe OCD for many people out there. Everything in life is patterned. It is the same thing day after day after day. And when something does change in the routine, it take a huge effort, a lot of courage and strength to change even a little bit of the routine. There is this stricture to routine and set patterns that can get maddening for some viewers as is evident by some reviews here but I think this needed to be shown and one must give credit to the director and main lead for portraying it so well.

Very well done. Please make more films!
