Short Film Of The Day: The Night Caller

Why Watch? Based off a Gary Raisor story, this short delivers vibrant color design and an eye for textures that make a family’s life more joyous and the threat of losing it even more unsettling.

A young couple and their daughter keep getting phone calls from a wrong number. It’s a simple fear – the availability we have thanks to our phones – that translates into something jarring and bizarre here. It has a Twilight Zone level of obviousness to it, but the true star here is a production design that pops thanks to camera work.

What does it cost? Just 7 minutes of your time.
