Scary Shorties: Baby Monitor (Rajesh Naroth, 2016)

A couple is woken by crying three times. The first two times are rewound to the beginning before a parent gets up to check on the infant.

The narrative structure makes the short more mysterious and suspenseful than if they were just woken once.

Greetings, boils and ghouls! We here at Kinky Horror like to shine a blood red spotlight on some glorious grotesquies that you may have missed. Today’s hidden gem is a shocking short from MakeDo Entertainment┬ásimply titled The Jester.

The Jester┬átells the tale of the titular ghoul, a┬ápetrifying prestidigitator who punishes those who lack the Halloween spirit. With a spider-like grace and a silent charisma, he stalks the night to search for an audience for his macabre magic. At only ten minutes, The Jester┬ácreates a wonderful monster that could easily support a full-length feature. Heck, this mad magician has the potential to become a franchise figure! While there are some conceptual similarities to Sam from Trick ‘r Treat,┬áThe Jester stands on his own as a guardian of Halloween. For those looking for an early Halloween treat, check out The Jester┬ábelow!
