    I saw this trailer during the coming attractions for Conjuring 2. It looks interesting.

    Here is the original short movie, that he did before he got the bigger gig :)


    Here is his channel, with a few other cool horror shorts:

    And NO, this is not the same David Sandberg, who did Kung Fury ;)

    Worth watching or does it reveal too much? I'm likely to see this so I'll avoid the trailer if it's too spoiler-y.

    It shows many of the scares. If it was me, I'd only have one trailer showing the scene from the factory at the beginning of the first trailer (watch at least that). Showing the entire plot in trailers defeats the purpose for me, but the studios obviously know what they are doing. I can appreciate people not wanting to pay $15 to go see a movie without knowing exactly what they're getting. As a horror/sci-fi fanatic, I want to be surprised. I'll see this film at some point, though probably not in the theaters.

    Thanks for the info :)

    Yeah spoilers in trailers is ridiculous. Small plot points are ok but big reveals and key scenes are crazy. Plus it usually never works in a films benefit. It just needs to stop.

    I'll likely wait to see if reviews are positive for this before seeing it at the cinema. I'm hoping they are as I thought the short film was very tense and well made.

    I saw the first trailer before Green Room and, to be honest, thought the movie was going to be a parody. That woman flicks the light switch on and off so many times that the audience started to giggle. To me, the rest of the trailer didn't do the movie any favors by focusing on jump-scares.

    Not me bud. I think it looks awesome. I will see it in the theater. The only thing that pisses me off more is when they show something in a trailer, and it's NOT in the film. They did that with Pacific Heights w/ Michael Keaton. There is a great shot of Melanie Griffith closing a door behind her and it shows Keaton standing behind the door with a totally deranged look on this face..and it never made the damn film. That shot alone was the reason I went to see the film.

    Ah Pacific Heights. Yet another Michael Keaton film that hasn't been released on blu-ray. It (as well as Gung Ho, Johnny Dangerously and Night Shift) have remained on my wish list for a decade now.

    Here's the trailer you referenced.

    Thanks for sharing this. The scene I was referring to is right at the end of the trailer. Very cool. Love this film.

    Saw this last night and really enjoyed it! Theater was packed and had many scares that had people screaming. I would put this as a top PG-13 over the past few years. Very creepy nemesis and a somewhat interesting story line. If you are looking for something to see this weekend I recommend this.

    Going to see this tonight. Trailer looked promising and it currently has 81% on rottentomatoes.

    Saw it a few days ago. Some ok scare tactics but I like the fact that it goes beyond the scares and actually gets physical. Looks good and the acting is acceptable.

    The final 20 minutes were great and intense.

    I'm glad to hear positive things from this. I don't know when but I'll be checking this out. Didn't realize this was pg-13 either.

    A fun film to catch with a receptive audience. Not deep but solidly done, with a good cast. New Line kinda falling back to their 80's horror heyday, this is straightforward, pacey and short. Too many pretty basic films are creeping in over the two hour mark lately for no reason. This one clocks in under 90 minutes.
