I dare you to go alone into that creepy, boarded-up house, sit in the attic, and count to 100. That's the premise of this 3-minute horror short which was part of the Bloody Cuts Horror Challenge from 2013.
It's a bit like a ghost train ride - and I mean that in a good way. Because it's so short, there's not much time for explanations, developing characters or a complicated storyline. (Although it does have a neat twist at the end). Instead, the film concentrates on giving the audience a fun ride with lots of scares along the way. And so long as you don't analyse it too much, it does a great job of this.
The location used is already pretty creepy in itself, but by the time the set dressers and lighting guys have had their hands on it, it becomes terrifying - yet eerily beautiful at times as well. Most of the filming appears to have been done in a single take, and if it wasn't, the cuts are seamless. Either way, it's impressively shot.
And like most fairground rides, the film probably won't make a lasting impression on you. But it's still 3 minutes of enjoyable, scary fun.
