The Best Short Films

Why Watch? This rust-covered short film gives us an insight into 1) a new filmmaker’s work and 2) how that filmmaker caught the attention of a famous production team. Troy Nixey‘s first feature film Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark hit theaters this weekend, and with this gem, it’s easy to see why he was recruited – the antique production design, the camera work dialed in to a sense of creaky wooden environmental horror, the tiny little creatures. Even the design of the main baddie probably got Guillermo del Toro to raise an eyebrow and smile. What does it cost? Just 17 minutes of your time. Check out Latchkey’s Lament for yourself:
