I was up late one night all alone in my apartment. My wife was out for the night and I thought it’d be great to get myself in the mood and watch something scary as I thoroughly enjoy scaring the shit out of myself (fetish?). Problem was that I’ve seen everything in my collection more than a dozen times and wanted something new, something fresh. What better avenue to take than the internet where the possibilities can be endless.
I watched a couple of shorts that were fairly decent but nothing that gave me any tingling sensations that traveled up my spine. That is, until I stumbled upon a little short called Creep directed by David Schneider and Drew Daywalt. To give a brief synopsis will not do this justice as this is, afterall, a very short horror film. So, instead, here is the tagline for the short that will explain all with just one line:
Does driving alone at night give you the creeps? It will now.
And indeed it did. This, of course, only lead me to search for more. Through this short film, I discovered Fewdio, masters of the micro-terror, and have been hooked and impressed with their work, looking up to them and using their work as inspiration. To get a better understanding of the effect that Fewdio shorts will have on its viewers, here is a small list of adjectives that will help to describe what you will expect when watching:
Frightening, terrifying, scary, alarming, bloodcurdling, chilling, creepy, eerie, hair-raising, spine-tingling, horrifying, spooky, chilling…. the list can go on and on. Of course, these are are synonyms of one another, which is needed to be presented as such because no one word can describe the films. Well, maybe not necessarily so because one word can be used universally to describe the movies: Awesome!
From being afraid of driving home alone to giving the Easter bunny a whole new terrifying perspective, Fewdio covers a slew of topics that, as there logo suggests, they create nightmares. Despite the vivid and horrific imaginations of these filmmakers, make no mistake that they have a deep respect for the art and for those who aspire to make films as theirs.
One such person who is involved with Fewdio is Paul Hungerford who takes on the roles of actor, producer, casting director and sound designer for many of the Fewdio shorts and is a stand-up guy with whom many of you will learn by reading an upcoming entry that features an interview with Paul himself and gives us more insight as to who he is an actor as well as Fewdio. So stay tuned for that coming very soon!
The question now begs to be answered, where can I see their work? Well, for starters you can click on the link here to visit their website where you can get more information on the group as well as their Nightmare House Vol. 1 DVD. Or, you can visit their Youtube page here to check out a good amount of their shorts.
Something tells me you won’t be disappointed!
Here is a Teaser promo for their Nightmare House Vol. 1 DVD:
