FEWDIO Horror: A Helping Hand

A young woman calls her boyfriend to complain about her invalid mother. I’m not one who demands total veracity in my ghost stories. Fine, it’s horror and sometimes people do stupid things in horror movies. But as you watch this one, ask yourself, Would you say this sort of thing if you knew it was being recorded?

Otherwise, nice character work. We learn quite a lot about the young woman from her dialogue and her delivery. But the scare at the end didn’t really have any sort of irony to it and I was really hoping for more of a “punishment fitting the crime” resolution.

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