Director: Andrew Grissom
Stars: Tommy Scott and Tony Botorff
The Victor of the title is a young kid, ten or so years old, and he's afraid of monsters. He's even moved to a new house with his dad, who fervently hopes those imaginary monsters haven't followed him. Of course there wouldn't be much of a story for us if they'd left him alone this time, so sure enough we get monsters. This is only a short short but it has a story to tell us and while most of it unfolds precisely how we expect, there's a killer ending.
And there's really not much else to say about it. It's a quality short from writer/director/editor Andrew Grissom that does precisely what it intends to do and it does it well. Tommy Scott and Tony Botorff are fine as Victor and his father respectively. The only problem is that the shorter the short the less you can say in a review without providing a spoiler. After all, spoilers usually tell you what happens in the last five minutes and this film isn't even five minutes long. As Grissom's first IMDb credit though, this is promising stuff.
