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?

This was very well done. There is a lot layered into a 20 min short. I don't usually do this, but trigger warning: Self harm. Its well placed for the story.
One of the best shorts I seen! Exceptional cinematography, pretty good acting and an actual theme that is somewhat scary. I thought it was very effective for how long it was.
haunting, beautiful, well acted ,worth the watch
Did Richard die?? I’m crying
