I was recently contacted by R. Michael McWhorter of Tizzy Entertainment about his horror short film, Things that Go Bump.
The story follows Megan (Kate McBride) after a day of moving into a new apartment. She tries to go to sleep but discovers she’s not as alone as she thought she was.
The movie looks and sounds great. It does a good job of establishing creepiness, especially when Megan is waking up in a stupor.
Honestly, I stopped being scared when I saw the baddie. The makeup is really well-done. I just don’t think you should really show close-ups of the monsters. Something out of the corner of your eye or seen only in the shadows is going to be scarier than a demon that, for better or worse, looks like it came from an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
That being said, there is a twist at the end that I really didn’t see coming and really liked. I’m not going to spoil it for you by telling you what it is. Now you have to watch it for yourself.
- Scarina--the authoress and editrix of this site. I like scary movies and have dedicated my free time to cataloging horror--the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sometimes there are books too.
There's film criticism, literary criticism, and humor here. I can be highbrow but there's lots of pop culture too. And feminism.
I fervently love "Twin Peaks" and wish it were a real place so I could move there. I can't list my favorite scary movies because they change depending on my mood, the season, and how much coffee I've had.
I'm an artist looking for ways to blend creepy with cute. I try to channel my childhood nightmares, my love of horror, and my experiences with sleepy paralysis.
