Little Bastard

A group of teenage hipsters on summer vacation find more than just James Dean’s Spyder in the barn.

A “Lance McMinn” FILM

Hipsters Jimmy, girlfriend Victoria Gosford, her best friend Rosie Clarke and her boyfriend Bryan Haynes all head up to the recently acquired Gosford holiday home in the far north.

After a day in the sun at the private beach they pull out the booze and begin the drinking games only to be interrupted by an unexpected visitor. Her name is Mary Dice and she had no idea that her parents had sold the house. Being a real Peggy Sue she catches the eye of Jimmy who offers up one of the many spare beds much to the displeasure of Victoria.

The following day after preparing breakfast for everyone Mary asks if they have been to the barn in the woods. No one knew there was a barn. Inside the barn Mary reveals a wrecked 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder proclaiming it to be James Dean's. All of them scoff at first but after further inspection, believe that it is indeed “Little Bastard”. Mary recites the tale of the supposed curse on the car but the warning isn't heard as all are now possessed by it's allure.

What lengths will each individual go to in order to take ownership of James Dean's Spyder and can they escape not only the curse but also the cars current owner.
