Otis is a 2008 direct-to-DVD comedy horror film directed by Tony Krantz. It is the fourth Raw Feed horror film from Warner Home Video.



In the midst of a serial killer's rampage and kidnappings, beautiful young Riley Lawson goes missing. When her desperate parents, Will and Kate, are contacted by her kidnapper, insufferable FBI Special Agent Hotchkiss takes charge of the case.

But, from deep within the psychopathic subterranean world created by Otis Broth, Riley turns the tables on her tormentor, manages to escape and to contact her parents. Fed up with the inability of the FBI to find their girl, Will, Kate, and Riley's brother, Reed decide to take matters – and revenge – into their own hands.
