Watch: Creepy Horror Short Film 'The Collector' by Marcus Alqueres
"If a setback occurs, we can intercede. However, the greater the relief the bigger shall be your token." The Collector is a short film by Brazilian filmmaker Marcus Alqueres - formerly from the VFX industry now a filmmaker, who also made the other shorts Flying Man and Crittus we've featured before. This is about a drug dealer who turns to an unusual company for help with a problem. That's about as much of an intro as necessary, the rest you'll discover while watching. There's a touch of supernatural in this that makes all the difference, plus the unsettling atmosphere of the whole short makes it a chilling watch. Starring Stefano Capuzzi Lapietra as Pepe, Nathália Boga as Julie, and Plínio Soares as "Pai". Alqueres is a one-man-show, writing & directed & producing in addition to working as cinematographer and co-editor on the short.
Thanks to Short of the Week for debuting this online. Original description from YouTube: "A drug dealer accepts an unusual help for his troubles. The true cost for relief can be unexpected."
