Yes, I’m tremendously picky when it comes to featuring short films here at ShockTillYouDrop.com, but The Sleepover was something I caught while at Fantastic Fest and I’ve been waiting to share it with you.

The Sleepover is a proof of concept piece, meaning the filmmaker, Chris Cullari, is using it to tout a feature film he’d like to see come to fruition. The story concerns a town living “between the sequels” of its infamous masked killer.
