Lights Out

(vimeo link)

Warning: watch this scary film in the daylight, or at least not just before bed. Lights Out, a short film by  David Sandberg, illustrates the difference between old-fashioned Hitchcock-style suspense and whatever the newer special-effects-dependent horror films are called. Gorefests, maybe? You don’t need all that, because the scariest thing you'll ever encounter is your imagination. This story won Sandberg the Best Director award in the Who’s There? Horror Challenge.  -via Daily of the Day

I cannot tell you how many summer nights I suffered through sweating under the safety of the covers. Don't let any part of you show if possible, but leave a hole near your face for fresh air. Nothing hanging off the bed. Switching on the side lamp in as rapid a movement as possible. I had a night light until I was well into my teens. That's what a vivid imagination will do.
