Why Watch? If you see a cat with human hands, don’t pet it. Just run away. Just run. It’s that simple. For those that forget, Robert Morgan‘s midnight-fueled short film is a nice reminder. In it, an old salt tells a young man the tale of a boy who found a cat with human hands by the very same well they’re visiting. What happens next is face-rippingly good. The short here is spooky like an old fairy tale meant to scare children into behaving, but it works on all ages. It succeeds through surreal imagery that brings a nightmare to stop-motion life, sound design that’s lip-smacking disgusting and a satisfyingly complete package of a story. Poe would be proud. Thanks to screenwriter Simon Barrett for posting it up on Facebook. What Will It Cost? Just about 6 minutes. A new short film posted every week day at 2pm Central.
