Short: “The Maiden”


Short films only have a few minutes to tell a specific story. When it comes to horror shorts, that time also must be used well in order to scare the intended audience. If one or the other isn’t seen to properly, you could be left with a short that makes no sense. Why is anything happening? What is happening?
