A young female babysitter is chatting to her friend when the young girl she's watching disturbs her. She hangs up the phone and goes upstairs to investigate. She finds her screaming and standing up on her bed but can't find anything wrong. She calms the child down and goes back down stairs. This happens several times but things get more ominous and creepy as the babysitter has to investigate the supposedly safe little bedroom. Written by
Beautiful cinematography, but lacks impact and reason
Who the hell runs out of a house and calls the cops because the girl they're babysitting has a doll her mom doesn't know about? The main character is guilty of extreme overreaction and it's honestly the only way the director establishes tension throughout the short. The doll/crazy guy in mask idea has been beat into the ground over the years and comes off as nothing more than cheesy nowadays.
So you may be wondering why this film even got a 6/10 from me. Well for starters the cinematography was A+. Whoever was behind the camera shouldn't be working on small films like this, they deserve the big-time. The camera work was better than many high-budget, full-length horror flicks nowadays and it's what saved Red Balloon from being completely dull. The fact that the film was so easy on the eyes excuses most of it's other shortcomings, though let it be known the idea, story, execution and most executive creative decisions were poorly done.
