On a cold winter night, Laura reads his brother David the story of a strange creature that attacks children. Suddenly, a shiver runs Laura's body, feeling a strange presence in the house. It's him.
Anyone watching this short today (2016) is going to immediately connect it with the Babadook. The top hat, the mysterious bedtime story that appears out of nowhere. But, because both were made / released in 2014, it seems like it has to be a coincidence, right? A big one ,but a coincidence just the same.
We rarely see independent filmmakers working with this level of production value. The camera, the music, the costumes and makeup... this should have been an international hit from the second it was released. Seek it out if you can, well worth your seven minutes.
