‘HELLO’ (A Creepy Short Horror Film – Don’t answer that phone!)

‘I wouldn’t answer if I were you’ Hello is the story of a young lady who falls prey to an evil killer.. alone in her apartment, eagerly awaiting the return of her boyfriend, the phone rings…

We filmed this on a zero budget with no crew. Just myself directing as well as filming, lighting and doing sound! I owe a lot to the 2 cast members Iggy and Claire. Iggy (the intruder) helped with moving equipment and sound etc. Claire did a stellar performance and even helped out on set too. This was real good fun but hard work! Filmed on a DSLR over 2 evenings with just one or two simple lights etc. If you’ve any questions feel free to post below. Thanks for watching!

  3. kuroko chi says:

    It’s a great film but , I suggest you add some satanic voices when the ghost hand grabs her at 1:28, and when she wakes up , make sure have a close up shocking face, heavily breathing,like you wake up from a falling dream. but nonetheless great job!

    I don’t know about you, but I would have tooken a huge step forward, say "hello" in a trolly matter, than kick him in the balls. Then, take his axe, and torture him like the way that girl did to that dude in that one short film. Forget what it’s called…or just get Mr. Pickles.

    she should have been safe they said the killer was going after young couples and she clearly doesn’t look young. she should have called the police she was so damn stupid how and why would darren do that. damn how stupid is she I would have tried to call my husband and don’t look for a weapon some people don’t fight hard enough for her life

    Pretty good compared to the usual uninspired dog dirt.

  14. Tom T-C says:

    This is probably the scariest short films I’ve seen.. even though the actual murderer encounter wasn’t really scary, the suspense building up to it was killing me! And it also played on my biggest fear in horror movies…. something being inside my house with me.

  15. Himsipoto says:
