Unlucky Night,
Valentine's Prey,

Short films Directed by the following Directors:


Jonathan A. Moody, Chris Roll, Coven Delacruz, Myke Wilson, and Johnny Johnson.


The picture is of the director of many of the shorts seen in this film Johnathan A. Moody also wrote, co-wrote produced & co-produced also starred in a few of the short films as well.

The reminded me of "Campfire Tales(1997)" when four friends are driving through the wilderness and their car breaks down and they are stranded and decide to tell scary tales by the campfire.

Although this may seem like other short film anthologies it is only similar in that regard the stories are fresh and well done -the actors are even good actors which was an added bonus.


The three young woman above are the three storytellers of this slumber as they start to tell each story we are slightly introduced to the story -then the credits roll for the next short. A good number of these films were stand alone shorts and then they put them together  as an anthology.

I will not break this down for each individual film is a part of this storytelling as the young women are trying to out scare the others, the stories are so well told that even some of them gave me the creeps which is rare in horror today-so much blood and guts these days.





Thank you for reading this
