We are constantly looking for new and different films when it comes to bringing you the best in genre entertainment. Short films are often where you find the most exciting new filmmakers taking chances, yet most audiences don’t seek them out. With that in mind, we will be showcasing a short film each week in an effort to give a signal boost to shorts we enjoy.
HOLY F__K offers a scenario we have seen many times in horror films since the release of THE EXORCIST in 1973. But it does not take long for that well-worn idea of a Priest doing battle with a demon possessing a human to get turned on its head in this alternately silly and weirdly intense short from writer/director Chris Chalklen. I feel like the less said about the film, the more fun it will be to watch, so I will simply say that this is not a film for everyone, but if you can get on its odd wavelength, it’s a rewarding watch.
