    This was pretty awful imo.

  2. John Smith says:

    This was award winning? I love how you see the cameraman’s arm in his laptop screen in the beginning haha

    "If you lose any blood in the middle of the night, you get a visit from the blood fairy, who comes for the rest of it. You know, like the tooth fairy!"

    Yeah, I don’t think the tooth fairy comes for the rest of your teeth, though.

  4. Witty Vixen says:

    I thought it was odd the guy was listening to that type of music till towards the end it started up again. It was very fitting for the creep vibe.

  5. Derrick Fulcher says:

    Just started the video, guy eats a raw carrot like bugs bunny, he’s going to deserve what he gets.

  6. Merve says:

  9. Sean Stepp says:

    was that a scary version of inception? altho more simple and a lot shorter?!?!?

  10. Gato Mendez says:

    wtf is he cooking with a carrot and an orange? Rachel’s trifle?!

    So, basically if you’re on your period, you’re fucked.

  12. YAOG says:

    First of all, the people who keep mentioning that the cut was gone in a few seconds, you do realize that that was part of a dream sequence, right? The problem I have with this is when did he actually cut himself in order to summon that blood fairy? If the first two sequences are both dreams then that explains away some of the issues with the film, but doesn’t explain why the blood fairy is there or how he ‘lost blood’ accidentally while he was sleeping. The best part of the film was when the woman on the phone actually did some somewhat decent acting and started in about the blood fairy again. He checks the phone to see it’s unplugged and that was kind of creepy, even though there would be no reason for him to check that except that it was a dream sequence. Not bad for a guy with a cheap DSLR though.

    Nicely done!

  14. White Chocolate says:

  15. Akhlaq Ahmed says:

  16. Joaquim Gonsalves says:

    I loved it!!

  17. gaurav goswami says:

    I think u hvnt watch it
    otherwise u cunt ask me "um why"

  18. Mark Robinson says:

    There’s a lot of average horror movies on YouTube, but this was very well done. The suspense built up nicely to a fitting conclusion.

    My only criticism would be that it was stated that the fairy had no shape or form, but there was clearly a shadow to symbolise her standing before him. That’s a huge contradiction.

    Otherwise, great job.

  19. M.I. Wright says:

    the tensest part of this film was knowing he was going to cut himself and waiting for it to happen

  21. XanderUnicorn says:

    So this must only effect guys, because what if a girl gets her period in the night? She’s gonna die.

  22. Gaming G-nia says:

  24. lil Yu says:

    u know who is going to get him Chucky lol

  25. Faisal Umehara says:

    He fell asleep on a chair?

  26. Daniel Lim says:

    These short horror films that rely on nothing but build up and show no ghost or anything at the end are getting really old. and what’s with playing 40s era music? that cliche alone is the scariest thing about this film. And who or what group of people are giving all these awards I see all these short films getting? is this like a weekly award equivalent to little children getting a star sticker on the wall because they spelled "bee" correctly?

  27. Jack Filpi says:

    No shit he cut himself with the way he was handling that knife. Someone send him to a kitchen safety class

  28. Linda Carter says:

    His finger was bleeding then a second later it wasn’t? ok.

  29. iFootballTV says:

  30. buffalo mcFUCK says:

  31. Chrisyl The Missile says:

    Is it weird that I laughed at the end?

  32. gaurav goswami says:

    I wish I cud dislike it more than once

  33. Jazmine Shaikh says:

    Towards the end, when he wakes up for the second time, covered in blood, I went like, "Poor guy. Got his period for the first time. Look how terrified he is."

  34. Babe Boo says:

    with the title I think about Scrambled egg..😜

  35. Donutlover88 : says:

    If the blood fairy was real, people that are on their periods are screwed

  36. Raghi Pandit says:

    That was good!!

  37. Ajay Laxman says:

    the portion after he woke up for the second time really got messed up.

  38. Alizay Khan says:
