Director Statement

Thank you for taking the time and giving this short a view. It was honestly a labor of love. I have been a fan of horror since I was a child and I had always appreciated the old radio serials. It is intended as the introduction to, either an anthology film or television/streaming program (the website has treatment for both). I do think, however, that it stands alone as a fun horror short in the vein of Tales from the Crypt , Night Gallery, or Creepshow. I hope you enjoy it. Thank You.
