Watch: Terrifying Car Park Horror Short Film 'Reverse' by Josh Tanner

"Check surroundings for safety." One more horror short to keep you all freaked out every night. Reverse is another horror short film by Australian filmmaker Josh Tanner, and writer/producer Jade van der Lei. The two also just made and released the horror short The Rizzle earlier this October, which was part of Hulu's Huluween Film Fest competition. This short has an entirely different concept, about a guy trying to leave an underground car park, but something doesn't want him to leave there. Starring Joel Stanton and Connor Clarke. They wanted to try and make a film utilizing the ever-evolving technology in cars to create tension and scares. Featuring cinematography by Kieran Fowler, with music composed by Stevan Markovic. Enjoy.
Thanks to Josh (again) for the tip on this one. Original description from Vimeo: "A man attempts to exit an underground car park. Something doesn't want him to." Reverse is directed by Australian filmmaker Josh Tanner of Perception Pictures, written by Josh Tanner & Jade van der Lei, produced by Jade van der Lei & Josh Tanner. They also made the short films The Landing and The Rizzle - find more of their work on their website. This was filmed in one day as an intense night shoot. Josh explains: "Having made predominantly period-piece cantered genre short films, Reverse was an exciting exercise for me to create tension with the use of modern technology and setting."

SEINFELD did it better.

Wow we have the reverse car monitor short, the surveillance monitor short with the store clerk, and the baby monitor short a few weeks ago. Were these all from a short film contest of some sort or just coincidence? They all have the same premise and weak predictable endings. The camera work is good in some though.

Just mere coincidence, honestly. I've been thinking about it as well. Perhaps this idea has been on the mind of horror filmmakers this season. There's other concepts and ideas we've posted about, this batch just happened to be like this. And trust me, there are tons of short films way worse than any of these.

I really liked this one out of the 3 though. I expected him to appear in the car but the tension built from not knowing exactly when it would happen. I enjoyed the convenient store one too but the baby monitor one was pretty weak.
