ABOUT "SICK" is the brainchild of actress, writer, director and producer Jackie Quinones. It was inspired by her dark dreams and a quote from Edgar Allan Poe, "Never to suffer would never to have been blessed." Shot in Union City, NJ, this short film tells the story of a deeply troubled relationship. A dramatic psychological thriller in the vein of Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining", Roman Planski's "Repulsion" and M. Knight Shyamalan's "The Sixth Sense", it shines a light on sickness in all its forms and the duality of human nature as a whole. Intended as a proof of concept for a feature film, "SICK" is just tiny piece of a much larger puzzle.
