Bill – Short Horror Review June2020

Writer/Director/Producer: Dan Gitsham & Sophie Mair

Cast : Chris Bianchi, Hugo Stanbury, Roxana Vilk

Synopsis : A widow employs the dark arts to see her husband once more.


Bill was entered into  Encounters Short Film Festival 2019, UK,  Mayhem Horror Festival 2019, UK  Cell Adore Short Film Festival 2020, UK.  Considering they are UK based, i have no idea how this little gem, slipped  under my radar.

The film runs for about 4 min yet, this gives you scares that a big budget feature length could only wish for. It was daytime here as i watched it, yet i jumped so much and screamed out, i am still shaking half an hour later to try and write this review.

The whole atmosphere, from the start to the horrifying crescendo at the end has you hooked. Such a simple plot, yet it sucks you in and plays mind games from the off.

I don’t want to spoil it for you by telling you what happens, but please go over to their website (link below) to watch it for yourself.

Sketchbook Pictures are creative and life partners Sophie Mair and Dan Gitsham and it looks like they are currently in development with the BFI Network writing a horror feature entitled GINGER.

I can’t wait to see more from this company!!
