Over the past few months I've been lucky enough to have been given the nod on a few new short scary genre films doing the rounds. However I am inherently lazy so it has taken me a while to get round to watching them so you may have seen them already, but I don't care as I like the sound of my own voice. Go get your popcorn!
Italian film maker, Davide Melini's latest work, The Puzzle is a new take on one of the very first urban legends that gave me the creeps. A middle aged woman has an argument with her son on the phone. She is home alone and sits down to do a puzzle. The acting is a little questionable but the tension is well set up.
Next up, whether you love Twilight or hate it you should see the funny side of All-American Vampire, written by Lyz Reblin with director Zach Knue. I love films from students but where this is different is in the production value. This could go far in the YA market.
Stalker by Wreckroom Productions is pretty scary. A young girl has hallucinations that she is being stalked by a masked man, or is it real..? This company have quite a few on You Tube so well worth sifting through.
It just goes to show what's out there, just spend a while on You Tube and there are tons of great new talent. The great thing about short films is the potential. Maybe you've have a masterpiece you'd like to share? So, as you leave the Scare Sarah Cinema, don't forget to take all your crap with you.
