Toby Wallace (Jonah) stars in another film (feature length) written and directed by Nicholas Verso, Boys in the Trees. In that film he plays a teenager named Corey, who used to be best friends with a character named Jonah,they spend Halloween night together reliving their childhood together. That film also contains darklings and other fantasy elements. Originally the Jonah which Wallace played in this short film, and the Jonah from Boys in the Trees were meant to be the same character. Since Toby Wallace had grown significantly he was cast as the best friend Corey anf Jonah was recast. Nicholas Verso has said that while he no longer considers them(The two Jonahs) the same character they are meant to be seen as parallel to each other. For instance, both Jonahs wear a red hoodie and both self harm. See more »
This was such an awesome story, and it caught me way off guard! It was interesting on its own, following a boy that had his own problems he was battling. Then came Richard and HIS demons. The haunting creatures in this gave me nightmares! I rarely get scared after seeing so many scary movies, but this one had me not wanting to open my eyes in my dark bedroom! Great development for a short story, but don't plan on getting to sleep soon after watching it!
