Storyline

A race-against-time thriller that highlights the potentially darkest sides of the social media phenomenon. Jaded by the job of managing an LGBT crisis line, Simon (Corey Jackson) finds that most of his callers are using the service for reasons that would qualify as being certainly less than a crisis. That all changes when he gets a call from Danny (Christian Gabriel) who says he is in the process of killing himself. Instantly gripped by his first real case, Simon does his best to connect with Danny and find out why he has come to consider such a drastic action. As the tale of Danny's journey is unraveled through the use of flashback sequences, we discover a young romance, a troubling network of individuals, and a dark secret.

Original LGBT Story

Crisis Hotline is an LGBT suspense movie that follows a fateful call into a suicide crisis center.

I was pleasantly surprised by this unique horror-esk thriller. What kept me involved was the story-line and original content. Within a month after watching this movie I learned of a friend going through a near-identical experience! Scary stuff. The cinematography was great and I really liked the performances of Mike Mizwicki and Corey Jackson.
