SFotD: ‘Twinkle Toes’ Dances on the Blade of a Knife

This week we’re highlighting the films of Popcorn Horror’s Blood Games. Give it a watch, then head over to vote if you like it.

Why Watch? A man suspended by his wrists, a secret kiss in a garden, a bloody tourniquet. This short film from Dan O’Connell is more of a patchwork of scenes, floating freely between each other. All of them play out and add up to the reality behind some bloody mayhem.

The production value here is fantastic. The camera dances around, changing up styles appropriately for romantic seques and dreamlike flashbacks alike. It’s also not too shabby when it comes to the red stuff. It’s a kind of feverish tango that features some eyebrow raising visuals, gorgeous scenery and a slightly disturbing story featuring two women scorned.

What Will It Cost? About 11 minutes.
