Left alone in her house, 17 year old Kate’s fear of being home alone becomes a reality.
More short films, kiddies! Today we have MONOPHOBIA, written and directed by Evan Sparks. I did find an imdb listing, but it appears to be a first project for everyone involved.
Monophobia, if you don’t know, is the fear of being alone. Teenage Kate (Katelyn Sparks) is holding down the fort while her parents are away. Mom calls to check in, and everything seems just fine.
But being a young girl alone in a big house can cause one’s mind to wander. You start to see things that aren’t there…or are they? And what seems like a harmless prank of “ding dong ditch” might just be a real threat after all.
This is a pretty straightforward film. It doesn’t waste any time, and conveys the paranoia of our character nicely.
So using my special short scale of one to five, five being awesome, I’m giving this film 3 doorbells.
