Crazy Old Woman
|Crazy Old Woman|
|Directed by||Zhou "Joe" Fang|
|Produced by||Kathrin Krückeberg|
|Written by||H. Scott Hughes|
Crazy Old Woman is a 2007 Canadian short form paranormal thriller, written by H. Scott Hughes and directed by Joe Fang. It plays in the classic vein of shows such as The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and films such as The Sixth Sense.
The film stars British actor Dan Richardson as Stewart Hanson, an attorney annoyed by the presence of his wife's grandmother, Crystal Colburn, who has moved in—and seems determined to deliberately disrupt his life and marriage. Crystal begins driving Stewart insane as she speaks to dead people on an unconnected rotary phone. As Stewart is pushed over the edge from forces beyond, his paranoia could lead to murder.

Continuity with Food for the Gods
This film takes place in the same fictional universe as H. Scott Hughes's science fiction film Food for the Gods, set fifty years in the future. In that film, Dr. Denise Hanson is presumed to be granddaughter of Stewart and Terri Hanson, the characters featured in Crazy Old Woman. Denise Hanson, in Food for the Gods, also meets a fate somewhat similar to her phone dialing ancestor, Crystal. Writer, H. Scott Hughes has referred to this as the Hanson Family Curse. The plots are, otherwise, unrelated.
