    I thought her acting was superb. I felt like I was missing something I don’t mind an open ending but I feel like you could have taken it a little farther. Overall though great job!!

    Brilliant! I’d watch a full length feature of this. Great idea!

  5. Corrupted Archangel says:

    I don’t usually say this on horror shorts but you didn’t screw the ending up.

  17. ornella aribam says:

    for the umpteenth time, lock the fucking door!

  18. wildwesleywest says:

    this wasn’t too bad. but honestly the girl does what so many people do in horror films, do a bunch of stupid stuff that gets em killed. it makes horror so much less appealing honestly. if I was her, I would have grabbed a knife, kept the lights on so I could see where the guy was, lock the door, she did SO many things wrong. but that’s par for the course for horror I suppose.

  19. Sana K says:

    Good horror movie, I didn’t understand what happened at the very end because it happened in a quick flash.

  20. YoYoFredo says:

    Wow this was really effective… Great job! Loved the "realness" of it with the use of Facebook

  21. High Performance Gamers says:

    this would make a good horror movie

  22. DannyDoo says:

    i hope this doesn’t happen in real life it was real scary and the idea that it closely related to social media and how it could be used for something this horrifying disturbs me even more and the acting was perfect the camera view was also pretty good not like shaky and stuff plus the background when the credit pops up was very disturbing too great work keep it up and have a great day ^_^

  23. Carmela M says:
