A lot to like here. The intensity of fear that pervades throughout is, well, intense. The changes in the pacing of that fear, from the slow start in the woods, to the running, to the slow hallway, to the running, etc. was very effective at ratcheting up the suspense. The boy did a great job with the role. And the final scene is well-conceived, fitting for the genre. There is a point, however, when technique is used over substance. I understand the context for the endless jump cuts and lighting effects (don't want to spoil), but they eventually called too much attention to themselves, and honestly, I thought the more "normal" scenes far more troubling. Definitely one of my favorite shorts so far. Nice work.
