Storyline

THE S FROM HELL is a short documentary-cum-horror film about the scariest corporate symbol in history - The 1964 Screen Gems logo, aka 'The S From Hell.' Built around interviews with survivors still traumatized from their childhood exposure to the logo after shows like Bewitched or The Monkees, the film brings their stories to life with animation, found footage, and dramatic reenactments. Not an exhaustive historical documentary, THE S FROM HELL is a subjective film whose aim is make the audience feel the same fear and confusion as the children who were first confronted by the vexing, unfolding sights and mournful, dissonant sounds that hid in the cracks between their favorite TV shows. Written by Rodney Ascher

Rodney Ascher's "The S from Hell" refers to the first letter from "Screen Gems". So were they evil or what is this about? Apparently yes to the people interviewed in this 8-minute short film. However, to me it felt as if substance was missing here really. It felt like a collection of scenes that were never really scary or scared me even if there was some gore and violence. Also the aspect of the unknown danger and presence of the letter S did not really work. I guess most people will see this fake documentary as a comedy, but sadly it was never really funny. 4 out of 10 is even generous as this one is really not worth a watch. Not even for fans of the horror genre.
