Abstract/Artist Statement

The Haunting is a thrilling short film about a young woman who stops taking her migraine medication one day and discovers that the pills may have been dulling something far more serious than headaches when she begins having visions of a little girl covered in blood. In the race to discover who the little girl is and why she is having these visions, she discovers secrets more gruesome than she expected. With the fear of her mental state intensifying, she doesn’t know whom she can trust. Is she safe at home with her over-bearing mother? Or is she being haunted by another being entirely? The idea behind The Haunting is to leave audiences on the edge of their seats, unsure where the story might end up. As a psychological thriller/horror short, its main purpose is to make you question reality and realize that not everything is always as it seems. Sometimes you have to look in the mirror to see who the true monster is."
