Eager to establish a sterling reputation, he goes the extra mile in his attempt to clear his customer’s home of vermin… and winds up unearthing secrets which humanity isn’t prepared to know. (Note: For story purposes, the Exterminator should have a slim build and not be claustrophobic.)

The Homeowner is an upper-middle-class professional who’s just purchased her first home. She knew going in that it was a bit of a fixer-upper, but she didn’t count on being kept awake all night by the sound of rats scratching behind her bedroom walls.

“Something in the Walls” is a student short horror film about an exterminator who is called out to rid a home of an apparent rat infestation, but learns that whatever is scratching inside the walls is much more sinister than mere rodents.
