Short Film Saturday: The Birch (2016)

It's got to be hard making short films, as no matter how great they may be, as they kind of disappear into the nether after their initial Festival Circuit runs are finished, if they are even lucky enough to get one.

That's why we've decided to showcase some of the many great Horror Shorts that are out there floating around the Interwebs: some are scary, some are fun, and every now and then, we even find one that's a work of art.

The bottom line is that plenty of time and effort went into making them, so they at least deserve to be seen, don't they?

"A bullied schoolboy takes drastic measures against his tormenter, summoning an ancient being in the woods using a spellbound book passed down through the generations of his family. "

We came across this one while randomly surfing YouTube, and we're glad we did.

The production value on display here is excellent, and it really plays more like a proof of concept piece rather than a standalone short film, which is to say that this movie would be great as a feature length effort.

That damn creature is a thing of nightmares.
