The New Tenants is a 21-minute Danish live action short film directed by Joachim Back, written by Anders Thomas Jensen and adapted by David Rakoff. It was produced at M&M Productions and Park Pictures.



A prying neighbor, a glassy-eyed drug dealer, and a husband brandishing both a weapon and a vendetta make up the welcome wagon. Set amidst the as-yet-unopened boxes and the hopes for a fresh start of two men on what might just be the worst moving day ever. Their new apartment reveals its terrifying history in a film that is by turns funny, frightening, and unexpectedly romantic.
