Short of the Week: AGATHA
A young orphan girl must feed a mysterious woman at the top of the stairs in order to earn her keep.
This atmospheric and beautifully shot short horror was directed by Timothy Vandenberg. AGATHA was premiered on CryptTV and within a week had amassed almost a million views! It is already being hailed by critics as one of the scariest short films of the year.
The creators have completed the writing stage of a feature adaptation, and are currently seeking financing. The full-length version, which Hilarie Burton is attached to, is set to reveal more of the titular character’s origins – and there’s already an appetite for more among horror fans.
“The only way this film could be better is if there were another hour and a half more.”
– Joseph R Davis, We Are Indie Horror
“I’ve heard that Timothy Vandenberg is making this into a full-length feature, and if this is true, I’m incredibly excited to see what more he can do with the story”
