Nice use of old technology to form basis of old-school chiller
9 March 2019 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

This short film is essentially a jump-scare short, which is not a genre light on entries if you look around. Polaroid did produce the director of the Child's Play reboot (if this is a good thing) and this short shows a good control of tone and spooky mood. The film runs longer than you'd expect, but does so because it takes its time to setup the characters of the two leads. This has dated a bit already, but it does engage the viewer to make them more than two screaming starlets.

The actual horror plays out in a familiar way, with the unseen, the half-seen, the suggested, and then of course the sudden fast-moving appearances. It is well done though, and I liked how the film used the old technology to produce an old style ghost story for the most part. The chills are well done, and they make the jump scares seem less cheaply bought than some recent big films. Nothing earth shatteringly new, but worth a look for what it does well.
