Every day during October, the Department of Tangents presents a different short film for the Daily Horror Film Fest. It can be flat-out scary, funny horror, or give you an eerie sense of déjà vu. Or even an eerie sense of déjà vu. Today’s entry is another from the bottomless treasure trove of short horror films, Screamfest. It’s called Ouroboros, written and directed by Semyon Voinov.
The ouroboros is a symbol showing a snake eating its own tail. It’s a simple concept, but not one you’d want to be awakened in the middle of the night to learn about. Especially in any particularly participatory way. But such is the fate of our man in the second-floor apartment, checking out something going bump in the night outside his door.
This one gets right to the point. Short and sweet, but packing a couple of good punches to keep you offguard. A perfect bite-sized movie.
