Dollar Bin Horror Spotlight - Stull
In 1993, four high school students drove to the small town of Stull, Kansas, to investigate an abandoned church -- a place rumored to be a gate to Hell. They were never heard from again.
Based on an existing legend, J. Ott's Stull comes in at just around ten minutes but feels like a lot of planning and care went into it's making. The film is shot wonderfully and looks professional, has good actors involved, and has fantastic music. It doesn't have many FX effects, but when they appear, they are done rather nicely for such a low budget film. The story is simple and the dialogue is believable. It even has a slight twist at the end, which adds a little extra "oomph" to it. The narration at the beginning and the end of the film helps to explain the story and again adds a little extra to it. My only complaint is that the narration at the end happens during the credits, so when watching, watch the credits as well. Other than that, Stull is a short that's worth watching! Learn more HERE.
