Friday Night Features: “Peekers” Short Film

Kittens, Friday Night Features returns from its sabbatical this week with a whole new slew of fantastically frightening short films for your horror viewing pleasure! We’ve been scouring the interwebs for the best horror shorts independent filmmakers have to offer and I think this particularly creepy 2008 offering by director Mark Steensland is a great way to get things started. Based on a short story by prolific horror author Kealan Patrick Burke (recently optioned for a feature length horror flick by Lionsgate with Mike Flanagan and the creative team behind Oculus), this week’s featured short uses simple concepts and film making techniques to effectively create a nightmare world of disturbingly grinning strangers who seem to wear the faces of those we know and love. Enjoy!

  1. This movie is totally unrealistic. TWO sausages? They sell them in packages of 10 for a reason!

  2. Well that was way creepier than I expected.

  3. I was reminded of a Dane Cook sketch:

  4. Old people are always the creepiest, especially dopplegangers

  5. DOPPLEGANGER! That’s the word I was trying to think of. Yeah, it’s that. And they are creepy.

  6. And now I’ll have nightmares. Excellent. O_O

  7. That was excellent. I did not realize that the screenwriter, Rick Hautala, died last year. His books gave me some good scary hours.
