WATCH The Sleepover: Undead Monday

Posted by Grey Monday, December 10, 2012

This Undead Monday, visit Derry, a sleepy creepy little town living "between the sequels" of its infamous masked killer. 



We all know how there's no turning back for horror movies now that we have films like the brilliantly twisted The Cabin in the Woods by Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon, and to a lesser extent, Eli Craig's Tucker & Dale vs Evil. Both self-referential films that knew the ins and outs of traditional horror flicks and wisely turn the table on the genre in their own ways. (Yes, we also do know for a fact that Paranormal Activity 5 will be there during Halloween 2013 but we consider that as one of the many signs of the impending apocalypse that  we have learnt to live with.) And today, we have stumbled upon a delightful short film that positioned itself right along that very rare line of self-aware horror film with one hell of an innovative concept.

Written and directed by Chris Cullari, The Sleepover will bring a smile to any self-respecting fans of old-school slasher films like Halloween. Made as a "proof-of-concept for a feature film about a town living "between the sequels" of its infamous masked killer", the short film has went to be come the winner of a Vimeo contest for the aforementioned The Cabin In the Woods while making its way into numerous notable horror film festival such as the Fantastic Fest and Shriekfest. 

Wondering how it's like living in an often-victimized creepy town in between the horror film sequels? Hit the jump to check out the awesome short film.




Here's the synopsis of the short:

The town of Derry has a secret, but no one told the new kid. It's gonna be a long night. 

 2012 Official Selection of Fantastic Fest, Shriekfest, Knoxville Horror Fest, Vassar FilmFest, and winner of "The Cabin In the Woods"/Lionsgate/Vimeo contest! THE SLEEPOVER is a proof-of-concept for a feature film about a town living "between the sequels" of its infamous masked killer.
