“Spotless” is the kind of movie that should be watched by those kids in high school who are always being picked on for one reason or another … and then the instigators should be forced to watch it, too. This is your future. Change now.
Stuart (George Caleodis) is the focus of this short film. He was an outsider in high school, but now he owns his own cleaning service. You can only imagine his horror when he goes to clean a building and finds his old high school tormentor, Brian (Michael Evanichko), sitting behind a desk. Brian, of course, thinks Stuart is “just” a janitor and proceeds to belittle him all over again. It just goes to show that some people never get out of high school despite their job title. When Brian’s high school friend, Tom (Harley Kaplan), pays a visit to the office, Stuart thinks things are going to get a lot worse.
I won’t spoil the ending — that’s not Film Threat policy — but I will say it is extremely satisfying. In high school, you don’t know how to effectively fight back. Once out in the real world, however, things change. Sadly, the same can’t be said of people, and they need to be dealt with in the most effective way possible. Thanks to “Spotless,” maybe some of those one-time loner types who didn’t quite fit in during the eleventh grade can get a bit of inspiration. At the very least, they’ll get a nice chuckle.
