Why Watch? It’s better horror than most of the stuff hitting theaters and home entertainment.

I’ve fallen in love with Finite Films because they use audience participation in a fascinating way – they take constraints on their filmmaking directly from their fans. In Forest Falls, the constraints include using a location from a famous horror movie, featuring a character whose attempt to quit smoking is important to the plot, and a dozen others. They’ve taken those dogmatic rules and built an unsettling horror film that’s definitely by the book – it’s just unclear which book it is.

The tried and true cabin in the woods story gets a new flavor, and a production company proves they need a distributor on their side. From the writing to execution, it’s excellent work all around.

What does it cost? Just 26 minutes of your time.
