I love a good success story, and that’s one of the many reasons I’m so optimistic about Jon Knautz’s The Cleaning Lady. What started off as an extremely well-polished short film has since been expanded into a feature film, and the result appears to be every bit as tense and uncomfortable as the source material.
The Cleaning Lady hits DVD, VOD and Digital HD outlets on June 4th, so we’ll know sooner rather than later just how well the concept holds up over 90 minutes. We plan on having a full review in time for release, but you can check out the debut teaser right now to gauge if this one is for you.
On the surface, Alice (Kendra) seems like a woman who has it all: a gorgeous apartment, a booming career, a stunning physique, and a handsome boyfriend. The only problem is he’s married to someone else. Looking for a way to simplify her life, Alice hires Shelly to clean her house. As Alice begins to confide in Shelly about her illicit affair, their friendship grows… and so does Shelly’s twisted obsession with her new employer.
It soon becomes clear that Shelly has motives that reach further than a normal cleaning lady. Shelly wants to cleanse Alice’s entire life and will stop at nothing until she’s done.
