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.
LARRY is a misleadingly innocuous title for a short that pares the horror film down to its barest bones. Using the way our imaginations can run wild when we are bored and alone in a dark place, writer/director Jacob Chase is able to build and release tension several times in five minutes before paying off with a creepy, startling ending that avoids feeling like it comes out of left field. This is good, old-fashioned boogeyman storytelling.
