Something off-balance beneath the valance.
23 April 2011 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

It's always hard to write reviews of short movies and yet equally important, in my view. The short film is where many talent started, of course, and viewing them can often allow you to see someone's work ahead of the years when they become a well-known name to movie fans.

But it's always tough to describe anything without giving away any detail or, even worse, revealing a great punchline.

Don't Look Under The Bed uses the old horror standard that we've all experienced at some time in our life. That feeling that the boogeyman is under our bed and that he IS going to get us.

Rachel Gomez plays the young woman who is playing around with a ouija board before fearing what it may have let loose.

This isn't up there with the best short films I have seen - it has a weak second half and a punchline that isn't delivered as well or clearly as it should be - but it's a decent stab at a slice of micro-horror in three minutes.

The big plus here is some impressive sound design (often a weak aspect of many amateur efforts) and I'll be interested to see if writer-director Dakota A. Thomas can do better with more resources and more time.
