Memory Box Short Film

"Be careful, Izzy… People are fragile." Another intriguing sci-fi short to watch. This one is titled Memory Box, directed by filmmaking team Aaron Aites and Audrey Ewell. Sadly, Aaron Aites passed away from cancer and this is his last film as a director. Ewell is keeping his memory alive and has started an Indiegogo for extra funding to release this short (beyond the internet). It first premiered at Fantastic Fest last month and is now out online. Described as a "psycho-sexual sci-fi tinged short film", Mackenzie Davis (from The Martian, Breathe In, "Halt & Catch Fire") stars a young mother who works at a memory-recreation facility where actors recreate clients' memories. Fellow sci-fi filmmaker Shane Carruth also stars. Love the score.

Thank you to The Playlist for the tip on this. Description from Vimeo: "Memory Box is the third and final film directed and produced by the filmmaking team of Aaron Aites and Audrey Ewell (Until The Light Takes Us, 99%). It premiered on Sept. 24, 2016, at Fantastic Fest." The short film stars Shane Carruth, Mackenzie Davis, Louis Cancelmi and K.K. Moggie. This was unfortunately Aaron Aites last film as a director, intended as a proof-of-concept for a feature. Aites and Ewell were also working on another film at the time of his death. Ewell is currently looking for more funding on Indiegogo to release Memory Box. You can follow her on Twitter @AudreyEwell for news about the projects. For more shorts, click here. Thoughts?

      True. Every year around now I do a "Horrorthon" where I get together with friends and watch horror movies all month until Halloween. I've discovered tons of great horror shorts too that are scary as shit too.

          Oh yeah? The Korean film, I assume.... The trailer didn't sell me on it....I'll check it out though. I take it you enjoyed it?

            G-d yes! I have now seen it thrice. One of the best Korean films I have ever seen. The director has only made three major motion pictures, but this one is his best to date. It is an incredible ride of fear, faith and ambiguity.

            It's on the list

    Cool concept. The guy wants to re experience getting with his girl. I just didn't really get the ending.
