Storyline

Everyone adores Andrew, including his old Aunt Mary. Rather, she did... until she died. Now, standing at her funeral, his Aunt's casket open before him, Andrew reflects on the last time he saw Mary alive, as well as the shocking, secret chain of events that led to her death: While raking leaves outside his Aunt's house, Andrew hears a thunderclap overhead, followed by a flash of light. Only the sun is shining bright, not a cloud in the sky. The light came from the upstairs window and curious Andrew just has to find out the source. But first he has to deal with Aunt Mary, a doting old lady Andrew believes has everybody fooled. He suspects her of hiding great power and aims to uncover her secret. As he tip-toes around the house, up the steep staircase and into his old Aunt's bedroom, Andrew shows he's up to the task. What follows is a frenzied search through a spooky old house where magic is discovered and unleashed, a frail old woman is revealed to be a being of great, enviable power ... Written by Joe Harris

Effectively eerie and creepy, decent short from the man that brought us 'Darkness Falls'
27 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So, I do not normally review things on here, as I oft do it for a living for the site Monkeys Fighting Robots, currently. That being said, no one else has review it, but has given it crap for reviews. I find this to be unfair.

While it is not perfect, for what it is and the seemingly limited Indie budget it possesses, it is quite good. The atmosphere and editing are solid. The music and sound effects create a tense creepy atmosphere, and the music and effects feel first rate. However, it is not perfect.

There young boy's motivations are very lacking, even for a short film, and the ending was effective and creepy, but it felt like it there should have a few more minutes. The rings were not adequately explained either.

Despite these flaws, I would still recommend it to most any horror fan, and especially if you like his story 'Darkness Falls.'
