The famous family sitcom, "Howdy, Neighbor!," is coming back to haunt Benjamin, a queer actor living in Los Angeles who still gets recognized for his starring role as Bucky the farm boy. His world is turned upside down when his new neighbor, Chase, reveals himself as a huge fan. As the lines between friend and fan are blurred, Ben begins investigating why Chase looks so oddly familiar.
Screen-life turns scream-life in this sexy, scary, camp and hilarious teardown of toxic fandom and obsession from former Disney Channel child stars Allisyn Snyder and Matthew Scott Montgomery, that will have you checking your privacy settings before the credits even roll.
