Sometimes when it comes to pure horror, it’s often your own imagination that can be the most terrifying. Whilst tales of blood soaked gore, mutating alien hybrids and torturous serial killers will always have the ability to make you squeamish, it’s the realm of the supernatural that is often the most unnerving.
In fact, many of the popular horror franchises in recent times haven’t actually been the most gruesome, rather they’ve been the most cerebral.
There’s few things more frightening than a mind riddled with fear, worry and paranoia.
We’ve all experienced those moments during a movie when you expect to see something but don’t, or where that feeling of dread suddenly starts to feel overwhelming. When the tension on screen becomes unbearable. It’s why so many of us enjoy the genre itself. The likes of The Conjuring, Annabelle, the Insidious series, It Follows and Lights Out are all testament to that.
Now you can add indie short film Polaroid by Joey Greene to the list of expertly crafted and fine tuned supernatural horror. It might only run 3 minutes, but it’s more than enough time to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and set your nerves jangling.
