Helping Hand

Helping Hand is a horror short from YouTuber Short Horror films.

In it, a woman answers the phone late at night and does not recognise the voice on the other end.

This is my own contribution to the specific horror genre exemplified by the series of ‘Saw’ movies. It also has some of the qualities of the moral warning fairy tales in which awful things happen to innocents because of relatively minor errors in judgement. I set out to make a horror short the way I might have done it as a twelve year old. In fact, the film pretty well sums up my thoughts on what horror films really are, how they build suspense and anticipation through a series of ordinary events and actions viewed slightly askew.

Of course, horror should always have some kind of payoff. This was filmed entirely without digital effects. It’s all analogue like the old days! Lots of fun. I love horror shorts and will try to make another one soon.
