While collecting paper scraps for her den, Husk, a life size tree spirit, has a shock encounter with some feral fairies in the street-art urban environment of Melbourne, Australia. Nothing is as it seems as this hypnotic story unfolds.
Emily and Nate Weaver leave the city for the rural comfort of Nate's ancestral home in the country. Once there, Emily is plagued by horrifying visions and haunted by the ghosts inhabiting their isolated new home.
This was one of the best shorts at the Film Festival and apparently it is getting worked into a full production. Yeah, there are a lot of corn field, people getting stranded, spooky houses, and scarecrow movies, but this one looks to be a really creepy and different version than the others. I can't wait to see it as a full production, if that is what they intend to do. And what's with the nails in the fingers, that was freaky.
I would like to see more of these movies, with a higher budget. The lower budget ones usually turn up to be corny with dumb special effects. This has potential to be a nice one with great special effect. I just love special effects in slasher movies. They are just great (as long as they are done right) HUSK - the name sounds creepy too.
