  1. 2001 or 2009 The Hole?

    2009 The Hole, directed by Joe Dante.

    By the way, if you have trouble sleeping after watching the short (which I did for several nights), here’s a behind-the-scenes video that helps: http://vimeo.com/83231790

  3. Hell Baby was awesome! I laughed my ass off through the whole thing. The whole cast delivered but Key stole the movie. This is going to get heavily recommended to people by me for a while. 8.5/10

    Bad Milo was alright. It’s a decent movie to have on in the background and laugh at some of the bigger moments. 5/10

    Devil’s Pass had a few really cool moments that got lost in a sea of set up. Found footage movies need a really cool setting to have that constant underlying creepiness when nothing else is going on. The Blair Witch Project had some creepy ass woods to fuel it. This did not. This could have been a really cool segment in a V/H/S movie, though. 4/10

  4. I found that the final shot of the short video entirely killed the scary for me. It was -fantastic- up until then though.

    Man, I thought that ending face was the scariest goddamn thing I’ve seen in years. It stills gives me a bit of the creeps, and it’s been three weeks.

    I guess you can’t argue someone into or out of being scared by something. But, damn.

    • I mean, I was sufficiently creeped out by everything up to that point, that I may have just not even gotten a clear enough look at the face, but my immediate reaction when I saw it was “Ugh, that’s so stupid!” which killed the fear for me.

      I was more creeped out by the face in clear bright light in the ‘making of’ video.
