Shira-Lee Shalit made the movie “Open House,” which was a story about a couple looking to buy a house that turned out to be haunted.
Shira’s good in doing comedy but in horror? I’m not sure. One good thing with her horror short though, it’s gore free.
Jason Epperson made the movie “Eternal Waters,” which was about a drowned child that came back to protect his mother.
Guest judge director Eli Roth commented “If you have an actor that’s not quite getting there performance-wise, which is what I felt at the end, I didn’t really buy it, don’t shoot them in close-up.”
The actress who played the mother looks like Lost star Maggie Grace (Shannon). Is it her?
Andrew Hunt, another finalist in the reality show On The Lot, made the movie “Midnight Snack,” which was about a woman going to get a snack in a house of horror.
Although the theme this week is “horror”, Andrew’s short film has a comedic twist in the end which i kinda liked a bit.
