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?
On a common night like any other, a solitary woman suddenly hears a muffled but nonetheless alarming sound coming from a plain wooden family chest. Will she confront face-to-face whatever hides inside?
A sudden power outage traps an unsuspecting young woman within the restrained space of an empty straight corridor, where an abstract but malevolent entity is in total control. Can the powerless woman run towards the escape door?
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?
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 you are all alone in a small dark room without a single beam of light to pierce through the palpable blackness, what do you fear the most? Is it the temporary blindness that sends shivers down your spine or does a more crippling and maddening fear possess you, stemming from an uneasy deep feeling that someone, or rather something, is observing your every move? But no, it surely can't be the latter; after all, monsters don't exist.Written by
Vastly superior to the 2016 film based on it, this has a woman frightened by a demonic figure whenever the lights are turned out. This plays well with the childhood reaction to being scared, by merely pulling the covers up over one's head, and shivering and hiding (whatever is frightening you cannot possibly get you under that thin sheet, right?)
That childlike innocence coming from a grown woman in this two- minutes- long short is amusing, and the creature haunting here is effectively creepy, and barely glimpsed, which creates a good balance of humour and horror, but at only two minutes forty two seconds in length, it's difficult to really get involved much with the character, or story.
