No Way Out

Obviously our focus on film is geared more towards feature length cinema, but every now and then a spectacular short film comes along that just deserves and even begs to be seen. Some of those even go on to get feature film deals like the recent short True Skin which just got picked up by Warner Bros. That brings us to No Way Out, a twisted, spooky horror short that played at Fantastic Fest last year. The film stars A.J. Bowen (The House of the Devil, You’re Next) as a man stuck and scared out of his mind in a basement where something unnatural seems to be with him. It's the scariest new film you'll watch this Halloween.

Here's Kristoffer Aaron Morgan's Fantastic Fest horror short No Way Out via Bloody Disgusting:

"Isolated in a place where twisted creatures torment him from the dark, a man desperately tries to find an escape." That's the simple logline, and the shooting of the film was very old school. Writer Eric Vespe (who you might know as Quint at Ain't It Cool News) told SlashFilm last Halloween, "It was fun to do it the soundstage way because it felt like playing with old Hollywood tricks." In addition, director Kristoffer Aaron Morgan commented, “I had something to say. We had an idea about anxiety and being paralyzed by your fears and we just wanted to work that out by telling a story.” What do you think of No Way Out?

    I think they are trying to say that if you smash your head into a wall and remove your brain, you might enjoy this film.
