    Did you fix that door just for this film or are doors really that high off the floor in America?

  2. Stromedy says:

  3. Golden Retriever says:

  4. Prem RJ says:

    its Little scary

  5. B Bistak says:

    I was expecting the mom’s reaction…would’ve escalated this to crazy wild terror…creature’s face did remove the scare factor however, the shadow of the thing was awesome, and maybe its finger shhh’ing ON the boy would’ve really taken the scare factor up several notches..add the mother’s reaction after and this would’ve won awards in my book!

    I feel like it would have worked better if it ended at 5:15.

  7. Sheikh Shahnawaz says:

    From one filmmaker to another, this was really well shot and graded. Loved the concept of sharing messages under the door. Great to see so much views on this so quickly! If you get a chance please check out my short films ‘Stalker’ and ‘Friend Request’. Would love to know what you think. Keep up the great work!

    Someone this seems like a story of a mother who refuses to believe her son is being bad touched by the man she’s let into the house…

  28. Mari -chan says:

  29. mbear1 says:

    I know them Shenandoah is awesome and hi Ryan

  32. Rachael Read says:

    what were the noises at the end?

  33. Beluga Whale says:

    That was really good! Nicely shot, awesome atmosphere, I was on edge the whole time! Super good snappy editing. Only things that did throw me off was a little broken continuity shot, and why he would get out of bed in the first place; let the blankets protect you child!!
    Really amazing film though, I loved the acting and the set and atmosphere and the monster was great too!!! 10/10

  34. vilmarie santos says:

    it kinda mades me wonder if he were to be nice to it ,would it still rip his skin off ? lol i don’t know but i still like this

  35. Jake says:

    Nicely done. Would have been great if after the credits, it’s the next morning, the mom goes to wake up her son only to find a bloody mess all over his room.

  36. 1250ececec says:

    Very unusual..I like it and it was maybe like Babadook – maybe there is a Babadook thief (Dan Dark) 😀 But the sound was too much loud. 7/10 points

  37. Gage Steffens says:

    amazing cinematography guys!!!!

  38. Patrick King says:

    For a second, I was like, "Oh wow, commentary on how verbally abusive parents could easily be perceived as monsters and end up making their children feel powerless, like their voices don’t matter, rendering their children speechless." Then I was like, "Oh he dead."

  39. Mana productions says:

    very creepy. love the feeling it gave me! keep up the good work.

  40. Dinglebobman says:

    is this based on a real horror icon like jason voorhees called skinman?

  41. kim black says:

    Bot fantastic, but pretty good.

  42. Fuzzims McFuzzface says:

    Goosebumps all over me. Great movie guys. Great acting by "mom" She managed to piss me off for screaming
    at her kid like that. I don’t often get THAT absorbed into a movie!

  43. luna_ti.ck says:

    Loved it! The mom’s acting was superb!

  44. GrammaCat says:

    5:45 Harambe seeks revenge.

  45. Elizabeth Wise says:

    Really liked this one. But the scariest thing in the whole film to me were the legos on the floor!

  46. Zac Carmichael says:

    that mum is a misunderstanding idiot
