Short of the Week: Luna

Synopsis: A young girl who witnesses the brutal slaying of her family at the hands of a mysterious killer is trapped alone in her house and must now try to survive before the murderer finds her.

Quick Review: Expect the unexpected in Writer/Director Antonio Perez’s short film Luna. This is a great short that manages to keep you on the edge of your seat for its whole 10mn duration. Who is this killer? Why is he after this family? Quite soon we realize something’s wrong and this is what makes Luna so special. Technically it’s just perfect. Beautifully shot, you can feel the tension and director Perez even manages to squeeze in a couple of jump scares.

Luna got the “Best Short film” award at the last ScreamFest and rightfully so. It’s a promising effort from Antonio Lopez career and I, for one, can’t wait for his first full feature.
