Horror Film: The Nightmare

Joseph Chrisitiana made this excellent low-budget short horror film. His lead actor is his young son who does a wonderful job under truly creepy and nightmarish circumstances. The film moves with the horrifying logic of a true nightmare, with one certain death situation leading illogically but believably into another. This film had me totally with it the whole way through to its brilliant ending.

Joseph Christiana, producer and founder of Christiana Productions, is a self-taught New York-based guerrilla writer/director. He has produced no-budget feature and short films which have been received enthusiastically at various film festivals, on indie film websites and on short film cable television shows.

I found this via Bad Lit: The Journal of Underground Film which has a review of the film.

Film: Nuit Blanche

Spy Films produced this short film by Arev Manoukian.  Lots of beautiful slow-motion, water and glass.  I like the black & white retro look.  The film captures one of those fleeting moments of imagination that usually don’t involve both parties, but rather just the lonelier one.  Usually the guy.  The woman in the restaurant would probably be too distracted by her drink and her own reflection in the window.  The guy in the street is not going to stand a chance with this lady.  No way.  But it’s nice while it lasts.  I found it over at my favorite film place, No Fat Clips!!!
