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.
