Curve Short Film

Time for something uniquely scary. A very suspenseful horror short film titled Curve has debuted online, from writer/director Tim Egan. The short originally premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and won Best Short at Sitges last year, so it already has quite a bit of good buzz. Curve is a very simple concept horror short film about a woman who wakes up clinging to a "smooth, curved surface high above a sentient abyss". Starring Laura Jane Turner as the woman. I like how simple this is, and how it relies on the sound design and visual storytelling to make you feel the fear and intensity. But - what the heck is this place?! See below.

Original description from Vimeo: "Clinging to a smooth, curved surface high above a sentient abyss, a girl tries to cover the few feet back to safety without losing purchase and falling to her death." Curve is written and directed by filmmaker Tim Egan. Egan is based in Melbourne, a graduate of VCA who has worked in all areas of indie filmmaking previously. Curve is being developed as a feature along with Egan's other new upcoming project Hollow. The short first debuted at Tribeca and won best short at Sitges, Transylvania and Ihorror.

    Pretty cool. Loved how she had her leg curled under her. Such a simple directing decision but it made me so uncomfortable. I just wanted her to get it out from under her! lol

    I'll never get those 9.51 minutes back . . . what a complete and utter waste. There's no suspense and it certainly isn't scary . . . it's one minute of concept repeated 9 times.

    That was.... unsatisfying, to say the least. Great concept but, damn. I want a solution!
