Although Alexia, Franco's ex-girlfriend, has been deceased for some time, Franco still has her as a contact on his social network. When he decides to delete her and move on, something strange starts to manifest through his computer.
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?
A nurse is taking care of an elderly dying woman on a small island near Torshavn. An old repressed memory of the island resurfaces to haunt the nurse and, as the elderly lady's health deteriorates, so does the sanity of the nurse.
Promising short film. Effectively creepy and a couple of good scares.
"The Maiden" is a surprisingly good and effective little short film. Written and director by Michael Chaves, the film manages to set a feeling of dread from the beginning, but it is as the short continues that it gets under your skin. The lead performance by Alia Raelynn is very good and shows good promise. The techniques and special effects used in the film are seamless, in that I could not tell if they were digitally created or done practical. I won't be giving away any of the plot, as this is something to see and experience with no primer. Suffice to say this is a good little scare film. I enjoyed this and look forward to seeing more from this talented group.
