Although Alexia, Franco's ex-girlfriend, has been deceased for some time, Franco still has her as a contact on his social network. When he decides to delete her and move on, something strange starts to manifest through his computer.
It is only a few minutes before one in the morning and the rude and repetitive noise of an incoming call ruptures the stillness of the night. Who could that be at this hour? And why is the husband as stiff as a corpse?
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
Director/producer Anthony Melton's favorite horror film is Hellraiser (1987), and the demonic entity in 'Don't Move' was designed and created by industry-legend Cliff Wallace, who worked on the original Hellraiser. See more »
A low-budget independent film with some spectacular production standards and a well crafted concept. Well written, well produced and well executed. This is a top quality short movie with some production value and a very well directed mini-plot.
The 13 minute short "Don't Move" is actually better than the last dozen or so full length horror movies I've watched. The voices volume are kind of lowered in comparison to the score, but the sound effects live out one second to none which result in an excellent surrounding outcome.
A Ouija board can somehow be seen as cliché but nevertheless, this is one of the scariest short movies I have ever seen and believe me... I have seen a lot.
