Premiered virtually on 15 June 2021, Untitled Horror Movie follows six actors who decide to shoot a horror movie by themselves after learning that their hit fantasy TV show is about to be canceled. 

They decide to film a found-footage-style horror film, but they end up inadvertently summoning a demonic spirit that's beyond their control.

The film was shot remotely and entirely on the phones of cast members during the COVID-19 pandemic. In an interview with CBR in June 2021, he said that he pitched the idea of the film to his co-stars about making it in quarantine.

Further sharing about the production process of the film, he said, "Originally, we were going to shoot this movie all through Zoom. And Nick Simon, our director, was worried about getting an HD film out there. And I was worried about all of us actors looking like we are shooting a home movie, which is what we did."

He added, "So, we got a [Director of Photography] on board, and he said, 'No, we can shoot this. We can shoot it on phones in 4k. We can make it look good. It doesn't have to look like you know, we shot it on a laptop. It is gonna require a lot more work and a lot more tech resources from everybody.' So that was kind of new information as it went on."
