We’ve all been there. Whether it’s an ex, a crush, or an unrequited love, there’s that one person in everyone’s life who has the uncanny ability to bring out our ugly green-eyed monster. Sometimes, it can even feel like they blur the lines between sanity and madness.

Jason Seelmann’s The One I Adore is a suspenseful short film that embodies the universal concepts of love, jealousy, and betrayal. From the ambient lighting to spine-chilling soundtrack, viewers will be riveted as they follow one woman’s journey for revenge.

The One I Adore is the lovechild of a psychological horror and romantic tragedy. Seelmann’s depiction of the human psyche shows how vulnerable and twisted one’s mind can get in times of despair. It’s fascinating to watch the main character slip deeper and deeper into the waves of rage and obsession.

You probably think you know what happens next, but there’s more to this story than meets the eye. As the saying goes, “two is company, three’s a crowd”.
