Review for horror short films: "In A Corner (aka) Katasumi" and "Ten Fours"
27 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Review 1: In A Corner (aka) Katasumi: In A Corner (aka) Katasumi is such an eerie and well made horror short film that even though it's only a few minutes long, it still managed to creep me out. And the fact that it creeped me out in only a few minutes, means a lot considering that some feature length horror movies are way longer and have zero scares and no suspense.

Review 2: Ten Fours: Ten Fours sort of reminds me of the movie "One Missed Call" (2008). But there is one huge difference, this is way better. Not only is this short film scarier and better than a feature length horror movie, it's under five minutes long and it's five times better.

Takashi Shimizu (director of both of these short films and creator of the Ju-On franchise) is a genius of atmosphere and horror. With that being said I strongly recommend both of these horror short films to anyone that enjoys J-Horror movies and anyone who likes The Grudge franchise.
