FEWDIO Horror: Cleansed

This one is set some time after a brutal murder has been committed and the police investigation is finished. We follow the activities of a crime scene clean-up specialist whose job is to remove the grisly traces of the crime from the home. Obviously, some traces are easier to remove than others.

Cleansed is over ten minutes long, a rarity for Fewdio. Does it drag? Not really. The film is mostly silent, letting the condition of the house tell the story. We can figure out what’s happened from a wall of photographs and which two rooms are covered in blood. Even the cleaner’s dialogue in the beginning, which at first comes off as needless character exploration, provides a vital clue to what is happening. My favorite detail in this one is the dead woman’s ankles.

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.
