‘The Thing in the Corner’ (2007) – Short Film

I just watched this very good horror short film The Thing in the Corner on YouTube that follows a young lady named Paula in a mental hospital who tries to convince the doctor that she sees monsters.

Short Film Review “The Missing Hand” (2016)

‘Ahalya’ and ‘Alma’ – Drive the Message Beautifully

It is really interesting to find two short films so similar and good in concept and content, yet different from each other. I’m here talking about recently released Sujoy Ghosh’s short film Ahalya and the 2009-released critically acclaimed creepy animated film “Alma”. The first one has also been well received by netizens ever since its release […]
