Storyline

Set in Ireland, a family moves to a new city neighborhood, taking residence in a large, old house that is rumored to have a dodgy past. Their young daughter Katie is caught in a power outage while the parents are out to dinner, and her father insists that she go down to the basement to fix the fuse. When they'd first moved in, Katie had a panic attack in the basement, brought on by stories that the devil once appeared down there. But with her father's help, she slowly descends the ten steps to the bottom, each step into darkness inducing more and more terror, building up the suspense in a most simple, yet THE most effective way.

Too short---I wanted to see more!
21 August 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film is one of many that are included in a collection of short films entitled "Shorts: Volume Four". This and the rest of the films in this series are interesting shorts made mostly but up and coming film makers.

The film starts with a teenager and her younger brother at home alone. It seems their parents are out working on an important business deal over dinner with some clients. However, the kids interrupt the meal twice. The first time is pretty unimportant but the second time the power goes out and it means the teen needs to go into the dreaded dark cellar to fix the fuses--even though she has a phobia about this.

While this film is incredibly simple, they did a great job of creating a creepy and malevolent mood. It ended well for a short, but boy did I wish it had lasted longer--I really wanted to see what would happen next! Good stuff.
