Storyline

When six friends meet up for their monthly 'games night', they foolishly choose a Ouija Board as their game of choice. Surprised it works, they scrawl down a sinister message declaring, "5 must die, 1 must live"...and accidentally unleash an ancient evil, which brutally eviscerates anyone that moves. Frozen in place, the remaining friends quickly realize only one of them can survive... but only if everyone else dies. As friendships fracture and dawn slowly approaches, they all must work out how to survive the night. But how do you escape when you can't move? Written by David Scullion

A+ special effects, good acting and slightly original idea
26 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

While the idea behind Don't Move is nothing special, it is interesting and makes the viewer think a little bit. You can just imagine how difficult it would be to stand perfectly still as if your life depended on it; it's relateable and I feel like that's what makes it feel so unnerving. The fact that you could watch your friend die before your eyes and wouldn't be able to flinch a muscle lest you meet the same fate is terrifying and exactly why I found Don't Move to be such a well-executed short.

The acting is decent and the special effects are flawless; albeit the gore is overdone as is the case with most horror shorts (gotta pack a lot into such a brief run-time I suppose). Because of the overdone gore and the fact that the idea is very unoriginal in most aspects, I'm being slightly generous with my mark of 8/10. With camera work, special effects and acting like this, Don't Move could even be considered better than most modern full-length horror flicks.
