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 #46: The Ten Steps

Going way back to 2004, here's one of my favourite all-time short films, Brendan Muldowney's The Ten Steps.

Putting aside my penchant for babysitter stories, I've always thought the payoff in this short was exceptional. Muldowney has since gone on to direct three features, Savage (2009), Love Eternal (2013) and Pilgrimage last year starring Tom Holland and Jon Bernthal.

Yes!!! This is one of my all time favorite short films! When I am working on script writing with my students and talking about limitations of budget, I show this film. It is so effective and terrifying while showing really NOTHING. And the sound design during the end credits just adds so much!
