I found an interesting short film the other day that is about Succubi, It’s described as: “A movie about a Succubus chasing you in your dreams. This short movie is a mix between stop motion and video sequences using a 10 mm fish eye lens.”
It has a very striking look and tells its story in a rather unique way I thought. There are a few points where there is a bit of a “scream surprise” moment happening, which I am sure will be obvious when it happens.
And if you cannot see the film here on the Tale, please try this link:
The film’s dream scenes do have the right sort of temporal disconnect and oddity that dreams tend to have which works very well. There’s also an undercurrent of danger, perhaps more evil, that becomes more and more prevalent as the film goes on.
With all of that, the actress playing the role of the Succubus does have a rather disturbing quality when she appears, especially when she moves very close to the screen and the full effects of the lens come into play.
The film does tend to step a bit more into shock horror than I personally like, but as a whole it’s a rather unique take on the Succubus myth that I wanted to share…
