Curve (2016) – short horror film
HAD to share this. Really above-average short horror that completely got under my skin and into my head. I kid you not this has popped into my thoughts every single night at least once still watching it. I think I watched it on Tuesday and today is Friday (kind of said that last sentence to myself in a Homer Simpson clever voice).
Though ‘love’ might be the wrong word. Curve is bleak….disturbing even, but OH SO effective. So very effective. Mesmerising for all the wrong (but right) reasons. What an idea – simplistic but also a complete smack in the face. With a brick. Covered in rusty nails.
Imagine waking up over a black abyss, your body clinging for dear life onto a curved wall….
That’s it. That’s the concept.
It’s the sheer bloody loneliness of the whole thing that got to me the most. Even though the situation is pretty darn dire whatever way you look at it, if you had one person – just one stranger even, to share it with, it wouldn’t be AS bad.
That type of lonely, desolate setting has always got to me in movies or story-telling in general and I just thought it was such a genius idea for a short film. It packs a complete punch in less than ten minutes.
Anyway, I’ll stop jabbering. What it for yourself, here –
