Overview

Executed in the manner of a 1940's low-budget programmer, this comedy-thriller chronicles the misadventures of screenwriter Edgar Allen (Rufus Butler Seder), aspiring to move along in the literary footsteps of another, 19th-century Edgar Allen. Edgar is trying to come up with good horror script in order to impress an agent. If the script is good, the agent will take on the scenarist. Needing digs, but having little dough, Edgar agrees to work for room and board as a janitor of the ramshackle Welcome Apartments, owned by an odd experimental filmmaker. Edgar finds that every resident is more than a little eccentric and uses them in his new script.
