In an isolated, 19th century Irish home for unmarried mothers, The cold wind howls so wildly at night it sounds like something sinister is lurking in the surrounding forest. As a very pregnant young woman (Alex Essoe from Mike Flanagan‘S midnight fair) discovered – “dark” doesn’t even begin to cover it.
L. Gustavo Cooper’s horror short runs just under six minutes, but it soaks up the atmosphere from the first frame, the stakes couldn’t be higher, and Essoe is an instantly likeable protagonist. The home also speaks to the power of carefully used darkness and spooky sound effects. Listen!
The homethat comes over To changeis set in Ireland but was filmed in Pasadena, CA, a testament to the use of somber, atmospheric special effects. It almost feels like a prologue to a longer story, something that would explore the origins of the “trowies” and whether or not the nuns who run the establishment appear to remain unscathed, although that seems friendly priest was toast—could be with her baby sleep Rage.
