Let Down By The Pay Off
23 March 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

As someone who watches far too many horror films I'm often struck by how many film makers have misunderstood the technique of scaring the pants off the audience . The Horror Channel in particular is a show case where directors and screenwriters seem to think gorehounds are the only market interested in horror and feel the need to graphically depict torture and mutilation unto the audience . What happened to the good old days when someone wanders around a dark forest and outside of frame there's all sorts of creepy sounds ? This type of horror worked very well for DOCTOR WHO in the 1960s and 70s where an audiences imagination did all the work for them

Watching this horror short by Kristoffer Aaron Morgan and Eric Vespe I was struck by how director and screenwriter had found this lost art . A man in fear of his life locks himself in a dark shack as he's pursued by unearthly creatures that we only catch a glimpse of , but at the same time a glimpse that makes us think they're squid like , a squid being that most nightmarish creature of evolution . All this is very involving and I was on tenterhooks wondering how this scenario was going to develop . Unfortunately NO WAY OUT then blows it by then creating a scene that revolves around gore almost as if to placate an audience who are expecting gore as if that's all there is to the horror genre which is far from the truth . It would also be physically impossible for the protagonist to carry out the actions seen here and remain conscious . This means it also falls in to the trap of the horror genre and that is crucial elements of scientific fact and logic are painfully ignored . This is a pity because for the mot part this short has a lot to commend then blows it at the end
