Short Film Of The Day: Negative Image

Why Watch? This haunting little film just won Best Short at Shriekfest, and it’s easy to see why. While awards don’t automatically guarantee quality, the judges definitely got this one right.

Karl Holt‘s story focuses on a star paranormal photo-journalist (David Moynihan) who heads to an abandoned asylum to try to regain his beloved spot on the cover of the magazine he works for. Unfortunately, he finds something longing to get out.

Everything is pumping on all cylinders here: the camera work is stunning and makes great use of the dilapidated building and modern home alike, the sound design is stirring and creepy, the acting solid, the atmosphere filled with buzzing and ill will. Just hands down, a fantastic horror short film that delivers obsession and fear in equal measure.

What does it cost? Just 10 minutes of your time.
