Filmmaker Matt Sears recently released the horror short entitled “Charlie Boy” which revolves around Charles Bonnet Syndrome– a condition in which people experience hallucinations as their eyesight weakens. In the film we meet Dolly, an elderly woman who starts to suspect someone or something may be inside her home. However, is what she seeing real or just her imagination?
Charlie Boy is a slow, creepy and effective horror film. The audience really feels for the protagonist Dolly, whom appears so helpless and trapped in her own home. To just imagine what it may be like to be in Dolly’s shoes is just a terrifying thought in itself. In just twelve short minutes the tension and suspense is quite built up. The end is quite mysterious.. definitely loved how things were somewhat wrapped up, leaving room for interpretation.
