Klagger is a short film directed and written by Casey Crow. The film opens with an average guy working his average job on an average day. He arrives at an abandoned factory and he soon learns it had been shut down because a worker died there. If you can’t figure out where this is going, please exit and view the short film for yourself through the Popcorn Horror app.
As for the rest of you, I know what you’re thinking, but really it is a great film! When I’m watching a horror movie that is extremely suspenseful I practically lose my mind when the director has made the call for a random, slightly-creepy-but-wasn’t-created-to-be-creepy song to start playing, while this poor soul thought they were all alone (i.e. The Strangers, which is one of my all time favorites if you were wondering). It never gets old for me. Before you know it you finally see the factory worker that has been terrorizing and killing souls that regretfully entered his crypt. Average guy tries to escape dead guy and then yadda yadda yadda you can figure out the rest for yourselves.
I really liked this film, but the only thing I didn’t care for was the villain. Don’t get me wrong, I thought he was ugly as sin and scary as fuck, but there was just something about him I wished was different. I’m not sure what I was expecting a burned factory worker to look like. I blame Freddy for forcing me to have preconceived notions. But aside from that, I give the director a scorched, oozing high five and a half.
