Flix for Short: The Closet


Continuing Flixist’s Halloween Flix-for-Short-a-thon, we’ll be bringing you a block of Drew Daywalt for the next hour.

Dywalt has made a lot of solid horror shorts over the last couple of years. What makes his work so striking is how to-the-point these stories are without sacrificing a sense of mounting dread or tension. It’s like good, efficient flash fiction in short film form.

The first of the Daywalt shorts for the block is The Closet, in which a little surprise for mom goes in an unexpected direction.

Stay tuned for more Daywalt shorts that will ruin your pants.
