SHORT FILM SATURDAY: THE TEN STEPS (2004)

maxresdefault3

A young girl babysits in an old house.

Written and directed by Brendan Muldowney.

Starring Jill Harding, William Sullivan and Paula Lee.

Filmed in Ireland.

Ten minutes and nine seconds.

By the time I finished watching The Ten Steps the hair on the back of my neck was standing up stiff as a board. This is one hell of a film that relies not on jump scares but on atmosphere and the pay off is well worth the wait. Throughout the film I expected one thing or another and writer-director Brendan Muldowney thankfully delivered something else altogether. I hope you all enjoy this one as much as I did.

  1. Very unnerving. I have a confession to make, I don’t really watch horror movies much these days which sometimes puts me at odds with enjoying your blog but you post such great stuff. This short film is such an example. I thought the film was really good and glad I summoned myself to take a look after your write up.

    • I have a confession, Lloyd; the last horror film I watched was The Witch. I have tons of horror films at home but I just haven’t had a lot of time to watch anything other than the short films I post. As for that you also have to realize that I usually watch two or three before I decide on one. In fact one of the films I didn’t choose will probably be this weeks’ choice. I appreciate you taking the time to check out my blog and my posts, Lloyd; thank you.

  2. I love when you put up short films, but the minute you said babysitting, I was like,oh no. Ooooohhhhhh nooooooo. Never good. It’s never a good thing, is it?
