The Brooding Atmosphere of ‘Samantha’ is Now Available to Haunt Your Consciousness on ALTER
Steady rain trickles off the roof. All the lights are dimmed. She pours bourbon from a decanter as fire flickers in the woodstove. Then she casually tells the inquisitive visiting writer just where in the room her husband blew his head off and left the pieces on the wall.
This is Samantha, the atmosphere-driven short horror film written and directed by Josh Carley that premiered February 8th as a featured short on the ALTER Youtube channel. With over 300 million views and 2.1 million subscribers, ALTER continues to grow its reputation as a destination for high-quality terror in the short horror format. The channel carries the tagline “You deserve to be disturbed”, and Samantha finds itself right at home, following a blogger and his interview subject who are literally disturbed by tormented renditions of their loved ones.
SAMANTHA – Full short on Alter
Samantha was an official selection at a number of film festivals, including the NOLA Horror Film Festival and it won “Best Supernatural Short” at the Atlanta Horror Film Festival. Carley, who recently edited the mockumentary-style film Phony, spoke with Fable House about achieving the ethereal haunted mood of Samantha:
“I’m proud of every single frame in SAMANTHA, but there’s definitely a few from the forest I think could hang on the wall as true pieces of art.”
You can be disturbed by the somber beauty of Samantha here on ALTER, and feel embedded in the creeping sensation that these apparitions brooding in the forest of consciousness—they might want you dead.
