The award-winning horror short SEEK, from director/co-writer Aaron Morgan and co-writer Eric Vespe, is now live for everyone to watch. We have included it down below so that you can check it out!
Official selections at SXSW and Fantastic Fest, SEEK follows two sisters, Heidi (Allisyn Ashley Arm) and Jordan (Clare Grant), stopping briefly at a rundown roadside bathroom. A frustrated Jordan waits in the car while her sister goes to relieve herself, having held things in while they’ve driven all night. The rundown bathroom gives off all sorts of heeby-jeebies. However, all bets are off with a full bladder. Unfortunately, for Heidi, we discover that she has picked the wrong bathroom to relieve herself in. Forced to play a terrifying game, it’s up to the audience to discover if she makes it to the very end.
In the short runtime we get in SEEK, Morgan makes great use of the time provided to build tension and suspense. Each story beat lands successfully. Once the game begins, all the audience is left to do is watch in horror. Screaming at the screen is optional, but you’d be hard-pressed not to. And, just when you think that the tables will turn, the rug is promptly swept out from underneath. Hopelessness abounds, creating a sort of mic drop-style of finish.
The film features practical by two-time Academy Award-nominee Arjen Tuiten (Wonder, Pan’s Labyrinth, and the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife), based on concept designs by WETA Workshop. When you get to the creature design in the short, you won’t be able to look away!
