Real Gods Require Blood

Short Film

Manchester, 1990. Alice is roped into babysitting for her hysterical neighbour and encounters two children who claim to be visited each night by a creature that must be fed when the lights go out. “It is not so common to see shorts succeed their incursion into genre cinema. Moin Hussain tries it with delight, throwing the viewer on the (false) track of a social cinema so common in British cinema to take us to the border of a terrifying and sticky horror. We like the masterful way in which the realism gradually becomes cloudy, then fantastic, before exploding into an uncontrollable anxiety.” via Ecran Noir’s: 12 Foreign Shorts that Marked the Year
