Storyline

During his night shift, Flip Schubbers, a security guard who is fed up with his job, endures yet another night watching over a cavernous art gallery where time seems to stand still and nothing ever happens. However, when a couple of snobby and self-centred artists complain about a foul stench coming from within, Flip will start searching inside the gallery, and before long, he will go downstairs in the damp and cold windowless basement. A post-it note on his monitor specifically instructs to never go downstairs. Why, oh why did you ignore it Flip? Written by Nick Riganas

great short film
11 April 2016 | by bighouselaSee all my reviews

This is a fantastic short film, very entertaining, the writing is great, the directing is fantastic, all of the technical aspects that we at the big house Los Angeles entertainment festival look for when we are reviewing a feature film or a short film for submission into our festival were prevalent in this short film, great camera-work, the cinematography looked like a big budget film, the characters are portrayed very well, the acting was good, the story is comedic and scary and intense all at the same time, from the opening scene to the finale it is a thrill ride to watch, this would make a great feature film, the security guards curiosity is right out of all of the classic horror films that we love to hate, the old don't go in there, or stop now, as a viewer you feel as if you are there, completely engaged in the situation, the film grabs you and takes you along with him as he journeys downstairs, it's an edge of your seat film that will leave the viewer wanting more, many of us here at big house Los Angeles entertainment festival have seen it already and all agree it is definitely a must see short film...
