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?
Suddenly, a lonely young woman senses that something is not quite right with her eyesight. What could possibly be altering the boundaries of human perception, telling her eyes to see things that simply do not exist?
In the underlit attic, an unsuspecting woman tidies up an already cluttered space; however, in the mysterious dimness, her eye catches a motion. Is this a trick of the mind, or is there something sinister hiding in the thick shadows?
Franco's ex-girlfriend Alexia had committed suicide some time ago, but he still feels her presence because her social network profile has not yet been taken down. On the day of her birthday, he visits her page and feels guilty over the fact she had taken her own life. When Franco's new girlfriend finally convinces him to delete Alexia from his contacts and move on with his life, his computer starts to malfunction and some thing strange and sinister manifests through the web and into his life. Maybe a CLICK isn't enough to leave the past behind.Written by
Decent little short film from Andrés Borghi, with some nice atmosphere.
The tale opens with a young guy creeping his deceased ex-girlfriend's facebook page on her birthday. He feels guilty because she offed herself shortly after he broke up with her. But his new girlfriend wants him to let go of the past...so he heeds her advice and "unfriends" himself from his friends page. And that's when things start to get weird.
Is there literally a ghost-in-the machine? Or is it all in his head? Very simple, yet effective, atmospheric little short. Some nice special effects on the wounds and ghost make up. Might make you jump a couple times. Solid little effort.
5 out of 10.
