Feeding Mr. Baldwin (2013, 94 min.) –
Feeding Mr. Baldwin, a feature-length dark comedy written and directed by Will Prescott, tells the story of young go-getter Drew Delaney (Dalton Leeb), who has been hired to house sit for the powerful entrepreneur, Lance Bryant (Christopher B. Duncan). If he succeeds in looking after the gorgeous estate, he’ll earn a dream position working for Lance full-time – a definite upgrade from his thankless job as a furniture store clerk. For Drew, this seems like an easy enough task: water the plants, sign for packages, and feed the dog. But, of course, things go wrong when a mysterious box containing a dead woman arrives at the house.
Worried that the corpse will complicate his chances at a once in a lifetime career opportunity, Drew coerces an old friend, Kamal (Anil Margsahayam), to help him cover up the dicey situation before Lance gets home. As an array of bizarre characters begin to stop by with some connection to the body, Drew and Kamal discover that their half-baked attempts at solving the issue have dug them into a deeper hole than originally intended.

“Feeding Mr. Baldwin is a simple story about friendship and every person’s quest for success… just with the added complication of a mysterious dead body.” – Bunch
“… the comedy is fresh…” – Dirk Sonniksen, Smells Like Screen Spirit
“Many of the jokes and scenes in Feeding Mr. Baldwin are in pretty bad taste. Those also happen to be the jokes that are the funniest… It’s vulgar, it’s violent, and, at times, it’s just downright icky.” – Steven W. Alloway, Fan Boy ComicsPosted on May 22nd, 2014 No comments
