Watch: Eerie Horror Short Film 'After Sophie' Directed by Minhal Baig
"She told me once that in her dreams, she would be running through this fog, like something was coming after her, chasing her. But she couldn't outrun it…" Kick off your week with this intriguing horror short film from writer/director Minhal Baig (who also directed the film 1 Night). After Sophie is a proof-of-concept film about what happens when a documentary filmmaker investigating the story discovers that the details surrounding Sophie's suicide are both disturbing and supernatural. This short film has some truly gorgeous cinematography and a mesmerizing score that pulls you into the story, making you wonder what happened without ever allowing us to interact directly with Sophie. Impressive work on this short, worth checking out.
