FEWDIO Horror: Breach

I’m not sure why this one is subtitled, “Wes Craven Exclusive Terror Short!” There’s nothing in the credits to indicate that he had anything to do with the making of this film.

A home security system keeps indicating that there is a breach, but the home’s occupant can’t see any intruder. He goes outside to explore. Eventually, there’s a jump-scare and the film ends.

Honestly, this one feels like a step backwards as the filmmaker takes twice as long to build suspense as was needed just three or four films ago. After five minutes of build-up, the pay-off is actually more laughable than shocking. Not much of a Wes Craven tribute; but a pretty good use of the suspense tactics used in John Carpenter’s Halloween. The acting and directing are solid, but this one needed more of a script to justify the time.

You can check it out on Youtube or Fewdio. And if you want to support the people who make these films, consider picking up the DVD collection, Nightmare House.
