This film really had me going in a couple of places. A very well made short horror film whose only flaw is that party scene that kind of stalled the film a bit. Before that all these strange goings on were happening and some nice scary scenes. The one with the little girl on the porch freaked me out, but then nothing creeps me out more than a spooky child. The plot is simple, a wife is getting ready for a party and she needs the husband to go get some ice cream for the pie. Well during this time a kid appears in the backyard with her back to the house looking at the woods. Then she runs off. The man goes for the ice cream and the little girl returns to the back porch. Meanwhile, the guy is going into a shop with a very strange clerk who is most insistent that he get some ice cream in the back of the store as his looks a bit melted. He wisely refuses and then they are at the party where he recounts his tale to his friends and one of them has their own spooky tale to tell. Well it then flashes to after the party and there is one more chilling thing that is going to occur. Granted it was a bit predictable, but it was still rather disconcerting. This was a very well shot short horror movie. It had good atmosphere especially at the beginning with the snow and some nice scares. Its main problem is the party where nothing really happens. This one could easily be extended to a full movie as I would love to see what the makers of this film had on their minds, however the dangers of that is that they will over explain what is happening and it will lose the great impact this short had.
