LOT254 – A Brilliant Short Horror

I love trawling through Vimeo. You can spend countless hours finding absolute treasures, and unlike YouTube the ratio of good to bad is much more favourable in terms of true talent and great filmmaking.

Well I didn’t have to look any further than the staff picks on the front page to find this little beauty. LOT254 is a 3 minute horror film that manages to convey story, character and make you fill your pants in a ridiculously short space of time.

Crank up the sound and turn off the lights.

It’s kind of an amalgamation of the best part of The Descent (that horrendous night vision shot) and Sinister. But more generally it’s just great scary fun.

James is a movie obsessive with a particular love for scores and screenplays. He has written for numerous blogs, sites and cinemas and has been involved in several screenwriting projects. He can usually be found in front of a large plasma screen devouring Westerns, 80s pulp, Jimmy Stewart movies or anything by the Coens.
