In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

Short of the Week #22: The Banishing

This week I'm posting one of my favorite shorts from 2014, Erlingur Thoroddsen's The Banishing.

I adore pretty much everything about this piece, from the performances of its young leads to its tight pacing and wonderful grasp on storytelling. This short film went onto be part of the 2016 anthology Patient Seven. That same year, Thoroddsen made the jump to features with the monster-in-the-closet film Child Eater.
