Missing in the Mansion: Horror Short Filmed in Disneyland

Josh and Jeremiah Daws directed this short horror film almost entirely during a trip to Disneyland. That's a form of guerrilla filmmaking I can appreciate because it actually uses all that time wasted in lines for a good purpose. So, three friends go to the Haunted Mansion and vanish.

Spirit is a Killer: A Short Film by Joewi Verhoeven

Here’s a short film from Beijing, China directed by Joewi Verhoeven. It’s an odd and discomforting tale about a solitary writer whose fictional world is intruding upon the real world. The film is a quiet and focused examination of a writer’s creative doubts and fears. I particularly like the bit where a Chinese policeman who is a friend of the writer comes over and can’t seem to see the dead body that is perhaps a result of the unrestricted imagination of the writer. The film also has a lovely soft celluloid look even though it was shot entirely on a Canon DSLR.  Also, pay attention to the beautiful and eerie background audio.
