Short Film of the Week
Youtube may have a lot of mindless junk in it, but if you look close enough you can find a diamond in the rough. This week’s short film of the week is Andrew Vallentine’s “The Storybook Killer.” This horror short is about a group of friends who go looking for a long lost brother at a nearby theme park, only to end up being killed one-by-one. The dialogue is a bit cheesy, but this is an effective and interesting horror short with some fun kills. The cast includes youtube star Ricky Dillon, Ashley Argota, Meg DeAngelis, Josh Leyva, and Cody Saintgnue.
Description from YouTube: "Four friends return to an abandoned fairytale theme park seeking answers to a mysterious disappearance from years before." This is an original short film for Ricky Dillon's YouTube, shot on location at the Enchanted Forest theme park in Oregon. The Storybook Killer is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Andrew Vallentine (official website), of one of Adele's music videos previously. The screenplay is written by Whitney Milam, produced by Milan, Vallentine & Dillon.
