The Last Time I Saw Richard
Directed by Nicholas Verso
A loner at a mental health clinic befriends a boy who claims demons are after him in this chilling Australian short, which found acclaim on the LGBT film festival circuit. Jonah’s a bully, but it’s just to mask his own pain and anguish. When Richard moves into his room, the two form a tight bond. But could Richard’s stories of being hunted by nocturnal beings called “darklings” be real? And if they are real, how can Jonah protect him?

Very nice! Spooky and long enough to really get into! This one got under my skin!
Effective and affecting, this is one of those little gems that haunts you long after the credits have rolled. I'd love to read this as a novella; as it stands, I think this is best kept as a short. As a last kiss in the dark.
One of the best horror shorts I have ever seen.
Beautifully shot, not sure if it's as gay as everyone says though..
Good one. definitely creepy as hell.
