Short Film of the Day: Late Bloomer

Why Watch? Because all of our sexual education courses seemed like something out of a monster movie.

This clever, harrowing, funny, frightening short from director Craig Macneill places us all in the classroom of Miss Lovecraft as she tries to explain the horrific drawing that’s laid out in colored chalk on the board. What are those wings? Does it have teeth? Why does she keep making the class call it a “vagina”?

It is the sweat on your brow. The darkness in your heart. The sticky release that comes at the climax. Fans of H.P. Lovecraft and anyone who’s ever had an awkward sexual encounter should be able to relate.

Plus, the voice over makes it.

What Will It Cost? Just 11 minutes of your time.

Check out Late Bloomer for yourself:


Trust us. You have time for more short films.
