FEWDIO Horror: The Laundromat

Honestly, if you watch this one first, you probably wouldn’t even get it. The Fewdio videos don’t actually have a continuity. It’s not like characters from one video appear in another. But there is a sort of mood that gets set from watching a string of them in a row.

And that’s why "Laundromat" works better if you’ve watched the earlier episodes before it. The suspense from these episodes comes partially from the fact that we know we’re watching a horror film, so we expect bad things to happen. This one has one of those surprise (not jump-scare, but one-eighty turn) endings that peek through from time to time. The look on Tom Proctor’s face in the final shot is just perfect.

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.
