We have officially reached the point where texting is now featured in horror films. Scary, isn’t it? On the outside, it doesn’t seem all that exciting – words on a small screen. However, when placed in the proper context, it can be terrifying as all hell. In that spirit, here’s Lewis Farinella’s Night Night Nancy.
Okay, first thing’s first: I was internally screaming, “SHUT OFF THE VOLUME ON YOUR PHONE!” However, let’s think about that for a moment: someone is in your home, taking pictures of you, and you’ve just seen this person lurking around your kitchen. You’re really not thinking about that at the moment because you’re too busy running away and being freaked out by the weirdo in the mask in your home so I’m willing to give it a pass. I did enjoy the acting of the cast, but what really shines for me here is the music provided by Jacob Cadmus. The combination of a picture on a phone (which seems so simple yet is so deliciously creepy) and the right auditory intonation just works.
So turn off your volume, and happy Saturday.
