Written: David Teixeira
Original idea : David Teixeira and Lea N’Kaoua

Synopsis : A girl keeps having the same dream where she hurts herself on a finger, finds an abandoned castle and goes inside. One day she wakes up and she decides to visit the castle for good.

Review :

An OUROBOROS is a circular symbol depicting a snake, or less commonly a dragon swallowing its tail

I am really excited to tell you about this one, a collaboration between Teixeira and N’Kaoua. It is exactly as the synopsis says, A girl ( N’Kaoua ) has the same nightmare where she pricks her finger by an abandoned castle but one day she wakes and decides to go to the castle.

As well as writing Horror, i am a practising Witch, and i found this short to be like watching a fairytale horror. It seems to have beautiful witchy undertones. N’Kaoua  is like an art masterpiece on screen and is hypnotic to watch.


I love the way it keeps showing you flashes of the monster. To me the score of music you have in a horror short is just as important as the story line and camera work, this does not disappoint, it is hauntingly beautiful which everyone knows i love.

The ‘monster’ scenes are horrific! Just the way she moves is enough to scare anyone!

I know Teixeira has said this is in post-production and will be entered into film festivals, this pleases me as it is worthy of being there.

This is up there as being one of my favourites of 2018
