The latest horror short from the folks at House By the Video Store is called Plucked, and is streaming now for you, and you only. Clocking in at just a bit over three minutes, this picture has a very simple, but effective premise: A young mother and daughter are picking berries in a secluded forest, but somehow the two are separated leading to an ambiguous ending with some sort of wolf man creature.
The quick ascension of panic and uncertainty is what makes this short work for me. The “uh oh, something’s very wrong” mood is quickly set, the location is perfect, and I love the “look” you get of this wolf being. If you’re like me, you’re suffering from post-Halloween depression — I’d recommend you cope by watching Plucked right away.
