Lindsey is put in charge of babysitting her younger sister, Becky, one night while her parents go out to dinner. Becky asks Lindsey to read her a bedtime story, and picks out a book called “The Whistler.” The book tells the story of a man called The Whistler, who leads children to a magical place in the woods where children never have to grow up. Lindsey tells Becky that the real story is about a crazy man who lived in the town some hundred years ago who led virgin children to their death. Unimpressed by the story, Becky goes to bed and Lindsey falls asleep. When Lindsey awakes, she discovers that Becky is gone and must search the woods to find her…
One dark night, Lindsey wakes up to find her sister gone. Someone may have taken Becky, and could be after her as well...

Good Short :)
Creepy and well filmed.
Almost nothing at all to this. 11 minutes feels like forever because there's no character building to latch on to, and when the plot is basically the Pied Piper that's not really a good hook either. 11 minutes you won't get back. Don't waste your time.
The creepiness worked at times. Perhaps 4 more minutes would have sufficed. Maybe 11 minutes is the time limit.
I didn’t know it was a short film but I give it a A+ for short films.
