This film is about a witch, Jenny Ringo, and her slacker roommate Gavin.
Jenny returns from a trip away to find that Gavin has somehow obtained a monkey's paw with which he has made some very ill-advised wishes.
It's up to Jenny to figure out how to reverse the wishes and save the day.
Just go directly to http://www.jennyringo.com to view the entire film.
It's only 25 minutes (and literally seems like five!)
While Jenny is gone on a Wiccan Retreat, her roommate, Gavin, becomes lonely, and while on his way to grab some grub, he meets a magician who gives him a monkey's paw (cursed with a pirate's spell) granting him 3 wishes.
After he wishes for some new friends, we meet "Jeff Awesome" & "Candy Gorgeous" who won't leave and become very angry at the flip of a switch.
When Jenny returns, she must find a way to put things right - but at what cost?
Chris Regan did an excellent job writing & directing this short. He definitely knows what he is doing, and leaves you wanting more.
Just hit the link above, and see for yourself, and if you like it as much as I do, great news - he's currently working on a sequel (so sign up on the mailing list, while your at the site)
I can't wait to see what happens to Jenny next!
