Watch: 'Duérmete Niño' Another Terrifying Baby Monitor Horror Short
"Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps alight." We're only a few days away from Halloween now, to get you in the mood for some spooky times watch this short film. Duérmete Niño is an impressive new short film made by Mexican filmmaker Freddy Chavez Olmos, who has worked with Guillermo del Toro in the past on previous horror projects. Set in the 1940s, Duérmete Niño tells the story of Alma, played by Piercey Dalton, a religious mother of newborn twins who is constantly awakened by the disturbing sound of her crying babies. It's a bit different than other baby monitor horror shorts we've featured (like Monitor or Monitor) as it has a vintage vibe that really makes it stand out. I also dig the opening logo reveal, and the seamless VFX shots. Turn your volume up for this one - the sound is the creepiest part about it. This is a very spooky and well-made "Horror Bedtime Story" that you should catch up with before Halloween. Enjoy.
