Daniel (Demis Tzivis) has been having an affair with Jessica. After his girlfriend Alicia (Elin Sjöstedt) finds the other woman's phone number while sorting out the washing, she confronts Daniel, forcing him to take drastic action.
Burn In Hell is an impressive short from independent Swedish director Jarno Lee Vinsencius (Darkness Falls). The plot is extremely simple, ending with a not-too-unpredictable twist; the real strength of the piece, however, lies not in the narrative but in the superb central performance from Tzivis, and in Vinsencius' masterful direction, smart editing and faultless cinematography. As horror shorts go, this is one of the best acted and most technically adept—I can't wait to see what Vincencius does with a feature length film
