Watch: Nathaniel Lindsay's Ghoulish Comedy Short Film 'Green Eyed'
"Why is he still here?!" Another great short film to feature for your viewing pleasure, this one a comedy from writer/director Nathaniel Lindsay. This first premiered at Fantastic Fest last year and after playing at festivals for a while, it has finally hit the web and can be viewed for free in full below. Titled Green Eyed, the short film (via Short of the Week) is about a successful yuppie whose life is turned upside down when a "Nosferatic ghoul" starts showing up at his parties. I really dig the score (which kind of reminds me of The Guest, same 80's vibe) and the make-up work is cool, but it does run a little long for a rather simple concept. That said, I laughed quite a bit at this, solid execution overall. Nice work. Have fun, my friends!
Short synopsis from Vimeo: In the Summer of 1980 a successful yuppie faces an existential crisis when a Nosferatic ghoul joins his social circle and undermines his social status. Green Eyed is written and directed by Nathaniel Lindsay (Vimeo profile), produced by Anna Kojevnikov, with an original soundtrack written and performed by Ben Browning and Mark Wilson. The SPFX make-up is by Paul Smits Studio Urge. The cast includes Mark Leonard Winter, Penelope Mitchell, Benjamin Rigby, Luke Brown, Shane Luther and John Benton. The film won Best Short Film at the Little Rock Film Festival this year and first premiered at Fantastic Fest 2013 before making its online debut. For more info, visit their Facebook page.

i thought this was a rather average short film. The acting from most of the actors were pretty dire.
