Some of the first shorts I watched were those from Fewdio, specifically Bedfellows by Drew Daywalt.
Well, Drew has posted little nuggets of nightmares on Daywalt Fear Factory’s YouTube channel. Sweet! It’s obvious the man loves to make movies because it appears that’s all he does. Seriously, I aspire to his level of productivity.
Written and directed by Drew Daywalt, starring Adam Conn, Zoe Simpson and Brooke Wolfe, Suicide Girl packed quite a punch during its 3 minutes and 17 seconds.

The last shot was my favorite with its view of all three pairs of feet. But the best part was the dread I felt whilst seeing what the girlfriend could not.
