How does one write a lengthy review of an almost four-minute short film without completely spoiling it? With much difficulty is the short answer. Barely the length of a movie trailer, Mikus does the impossible; freaking you the fuck out in literally the shortest time any short has ever done...at least for me.
I recently received a box of my own childhood possessions from mother dearest, echoing the plot of this short(est) horror film, though none of my personal childhood possessions had nearly the effect on me that our protagonist experiences.
The score is cute, the story relatable to those of college age or older unboxing childhood memories, the effects perfect, and the scare pretty predictable. It's a jump scare that you see coming from the get-go, though not together all that disappointing.
It is a well made, fun, tasty and a good gasp; a short film that is both memorable and mad. Thanks for reading and as always, stay sordid. I have put a link to the film after the poster for those of you that have a few minutes to spare for a good scare.
