Film Director Tony Morales is no stranger to all things creepy. From his short released just a couple of years ago, Hada and now Black Eyed Child, Morales knows how to bring everything that goes “bump in the night” to a nightmarish reality.
With the use of lighting, unique camera movements and the song “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf” all of which added to the aesthetic of the film Morales creates a creepiness that will haunt you for quite some time. Black Eyed Child radiates that familiar Insidious vibe, something I loved! This ten-minute horror short is truly terrifying – the filmmakers understand how to use the art of silence to put the audience over the edge. If you love horror shorts and good story-telling with a twist, this is definitely something you won’t want to miss.
Black Eyed Child has made a run at the following festivals: Fantasporto, Texas Frightmare Weekend, Midsummer Scream Halloween Festival, Popcorn Frights Film Festival, Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, Sitges Festival Internacional de Cinema Fantástic de Catalunya, Nocturna Madrid, Screamfest Horror Film Festival, Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival, Aurora: Festival Internacional de Cine de Horror, Imagine Film Festival, Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, and the Transilvania International Film Festival.
Synopsis: “Since 1998 the appearances of the BEC has been constant, and the consequences of looking directly into their eyes have been irreversible. A terminally ill woman will receive a visit from a BEC, who will not come alone on a stormy night, who will be accompanied by a malignant entity.”
