Short Film Saturday: Curve (2017)

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?

"Clinging to a smooth, curved surface high above a sentient abyss, a girl tries to cover the few feet back to safety without losing purchase and falling to her death."

Hold on tight for this one.

As someone who is not a big fan of heights, this short film puckered my b-hole.

Where is this girl, how did she get there, and what in the hell is going on? I have no answer to any of these questions, but I can say that this short film gave me the most intense 10 minutes that I've experienced in quite some time.

There's no dialogue spoken, and it's so simplistic in its set-up (and minimalistic in its execution), that I'm still not sure how it's so effective, but director Tim Egan has crafted himself a brilliant little piece of Horror art here. Props go to Laura Jane Turner too, who was great as the poor girl trapped on the edge of the abyss.

I have to say though, that I'd really like to know more about what was going on in this one. A sequel maybe? Please?

  1. Damn that was intense. This could actually be a good full-length survival film. Yeah, I'm also wondering how she got there and the ending scene left me hanging. Guess, that's what shorts do - tease you then left you begging for more.
