Welcome to another installment of 31 Days of Halloween! This is our chance to set the mood for the spookiest and scariest month of the year as we focus our attention on horror and Halloween fun. For the month of October we’ll be sharing various pieces of underappreciated scary books, comics, movies, and television to help keep you terrified and entertained all the way up to Halloween.
Seek has been on our radar since we first saw it at last year’s SXSW. Directed by Aaron Morgan and written by Eric Vespe, the short film that hits all the correct horror notes. The story follows two sisters who have stopped at rest area to use the facilities. When Heidi finds a cell phone on the dirty bathroom floor it leads to a frightening game she seems doomed to lose. It is a simple premise that works perfectly.
Much like many good horror movies, Seek does not dive straight into the scares. It sets the stage and places the audiences in an uncomfortable situation that is familiar, disgusting, and not overtly dangerous. Once everyone has settled in, the scares take over.
The short was part of this year’s Fantastic Fest and continues to draw rave reviews. It creepy atmosphere and frightening creature design make it a perfect watch for the spook season. Seek is now available to watch online.
