MoreHorror Report: 2nd annual 'Halloween Horror Short Film Night' at the Jumpcut Café

Children's horror is a difficult thing to pull off, because there has to be a perfect balance of childlike wonder and horror or the thing won't work. In Witches Brew McKendry successfully utilizes the naiveté of childhood to create something both cute and scary. I should also add that Actress Jessica Cameron gives the most appealing performance of her career so far.
