Short Round: Bill, the darkest arts

When I think of all the things that make up some of my favorite short films, they all have at least one thing in common: they’re short. Some of the best (and scariest) short films are just a few minutes long and Bill, from Dan Gitsham and Sophie Mair, fits that mold perfectly. Every frame of this short is intentionally building towards its nightmarish final shot, but what’s particularly impressive is in the way it uses anticipation to create tension — although you know something is coming, there’s no way to prepare for it. It’s tough to describe a story that’s only 3 minutes long without spoiling anything, so I’m going to let you ride into this one blind (you’ll thank me later). Enjoy!

BILL tells the story of a grieving widow who employs the dark arts to see her husband once more.
