Big ups to Ben Tillett for this week’s Horror Film Short at TSFP. This one has a wonderfully childlike quality and that makes it even more devilishly enjoyable as a horror short.
“Suckablood” serves as a sterling example of “how to make a dollar out of 50 cents,” creating something very fun and very skillful in its simplicity with limited resources and few players in the mix. Writing, casting, narration, cinematography, lighting are all on point here and give us a polished package.
Though “Suckablood” isn’t fright-filled for adults, it’s a ton of creepy, gothic fun just the same. Call the kids for this one.
