The look of the trailer is inspired by the TV teaser to Larry Cohen's IT'S ALIVE (1974) with its minimalist set design and dark lighting. VIEW HERE: youtu.be/F8xe8p6zECQ

and the creepy atmosphere, blood effects and title crawl are literally cribbed from the teaser trailer to Stanley Kubrick's THE SHINING (1980). VIEW HERE: youtu.be/UTEYKMcDIAw

Furthermore, the jarring blitz edits that appear within the teaser were inspired by the opening title sequence to the FX show AMERICAN HORROR STORY. VIEW HERE: youtu.be/E00BPNKubKs

The ultimate goal is to make an intense, scary horror short which we intend to garner attention to make a feature version, either independently, or within the Hollywood studio system. Therefore the quality of this short has to be at a level of a Hollywood studio feature.
