The Lot is a supernatural thriller that explores romantic love as a deadly curse, set on the lot of a trashy true crime TV show. Rose, a street smart 26 year old waitress, falls for her co-star Tommy (24), a country boy looking for a big break as an actor, when they meet on the decrepit studio lot of Deadly Promises, a long-running series that investigates murder in romantic relationships. Cast to play real life killers and victims by the show’s eccentric producer, Faye Sutcliffe, the two find themselves falling uncontrollably in love while re-enacting a series of gruesome crimes on screen. But their blossoming relationship is soon threatened by a supernatural influence as the violent re-creations they are portraying begin to filter into their off-screen lives. As the phenomenon escalates, Rose tries desperately to uncover the cause of the curse in order to escape the lot.
