This short film from Sundance puts you at KNIFE POINT

I’m not usually keen on short horror films, but this film absolutely nails the genre to a pole.

There is a creepy presence throughout the film, you’re never sure what’s going to happen next. It’s an awkward, warped type of suspense, which will leave you at a knife’s edge where insanity looms.

This film is worth your time, it has cinematic roots and a dark, moody undertone (beautifully shot by Chris Dapkins). It is slow, but anything from formulaic.

The film is directed by Carlo Mirabella-Davis who is currently working on his debut feature (more info).

Other cool shorts I watched this week:

Cargo – Another horror film that defies popular convention. It somehow manages to put empathy and human nature into a zomblie flick – watch it online here.

Wretched – A gritty drama acting out the dark trappings of drug addiction and relationship insecurities – watch it online here.
