Short Film Saturday: The Thing in the Apartment (2015)

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?

"There's something in Lindsay's apartment..."

Hopefully you watch this short in the dark, in bed, alone.

I have to imagine that being home alone late at night, and hearing a weird, out of place noise is something that freaks most people out. This short film makes great use of that concept, and adds a mongoloid creature to the proceedings that makes it even more terrifying.

This was a pretty well-put together effort, and it was creepy in all the right ways.It was 10 minutes of quality that I wish we could get from more 90-minute productions.

And Melia Renee, who plays Sam, needs to be in more.... tank tops or movies, take your pick.
