Short of the Week: They Live Inside Us
A man spends the night in a notorious haunted house with the hopes of finding inspiration for the scariest screenplay he can possibly write.
The Witching Season is a Halloween horror anthology series composed of short horror films that are presented on YouTube as a free web series. Inspired by classic anthology shows such as “Tales From The Crypt”, “The Twilight Zone”, and “Are You Afraid Of The Dark?”, The Witching Season delivers originally produced tales of terror, all set during the Halloween season. Fueled by nostalgia, the series pays special attention to the spirit of Halloween and reminds us of the magic that exists during that special time of year.
Written and Directed by series creator Michael Ballif, the fourth and largest episode of The Witching Season takes the series down a psychological rabbit hole.
