Dir: David Sandberg/??/2013
Its taken me some time to write about this, mostly due to the deep psychological effect that this horror short has had on me. I wouldn’t say that I scare easily and it’s not that I’m afraid but the entity that you encounter in this film certainly does leave a lasting impression.
When you’re young and getting used to the dark nights, thinking that night lights are for babes, you probably spent as least one sleepless night huddling under the covers with your imagination running wild about malevolent creatures out there to get you!! This film took me right back there.. It’s a very simple story and one that has been doing the rounds on sleepovers, creepypastas and all sorts.
Utilising in just a few minutes, two rooms and minimal equipment and one actress, and using no dialogue, David F Sandberg has managed to create one of the scariest films ever. Why do you think it’s so scary?? Maybe I’m just a wimp?!
