Knock Knock

Written by David Strege


Directed by Maxence Rapp in Paris, France from 2015, this Horror short played that the Milwaukee Twisted Dreams Festival April 9th 2016.

Rose unwrap an Antique mirror that says on its back:

TO DETERMINE THE NATURE OF THE WALL, KNOCK ON IT THREE TIMES.
She laughs and says she knows how it’s done and goes and grabs a hammer then knocks twice on the wall to gage where to hang the mirror… this was not the spot… Rose glanced around the room looks at the mirror finds a spot she thinks would be great, looks at the mirror and says Knock three times right? And knocks three times…

Suddenly there’s three knocks at the door… opens the door and there’s an old looking box sitting on the floor… no one in sight.

Soon as she puts the box down three more knocks… from a different door.. three more knocks behind her through the wall… three more knocks through another door… three more knock from a closet with no doors… until…

Now this was a film submitted to the Milwaukee Twisted Dreams Festival and I’m glad I saw it.  It’s a slow building suspense film of paranoia and fear.  With camera angles and sounds we feel the fear as the with desperation she just wants to find the source… you should listen and follow directions I feel is the moral of the tale…

I’m going to give this film a 5 out of 5 star rating as I feel this film could have won the best short film of our festival as it definitely drives a wedge of unknown into your mind about what really was in the box… recommend for all horror fans… enjoy!

Starring Claire Morin as Rose.
