Short Round: Ain’t So Pretty Now Are We?

Created by Al Loughner, comes a short film called The Continuum: ‘So Pretty’ that shows us what a vampire in a modern world would really be like. Beautifully shot on Red, Loughner has delivered an incredible short film that creates an atmosphere of dread on this quiet subway train that moves underneath the city. With all of the glamorizing of the vampire genre we’ve seen lately, it’s nice to see someone like Loughner bring them back to their roots, as he gives us a brutal and cursed monster. While it may not be bringing anything entirely new to the genre, it’s still an extremely smart set up that will quickly remind you why you should always fear vampires.

After a young woman steps onto a midnight subway train, she begins to read her favorite novel, Twilight, for the third time. A man notices that she’s a big fan and starts to challenge the idea of changing the legend of vampires like the novel so famously did. Is becoming a vampire as glorious as people seem to think it is and do they understand what it’s like to be truly cursed?
