Doggy in the windows was a fantastically executed ghost movie about a cheap toy dog with one eye, who upon being repaired will curse the repairer to die within 48 hours (I believe).
It is a real pity that this short was late, because it was a ghost movie with genuine scares, great execution and only minor technical difficulties mainly sound related.
All in all 10 Trucks did a fantastic job, and if they can do as well next year and still get in on time, and polish up the sound a bit, they'll be on their way to be true contenders.
I enjoyed this film - About a toy with a missing eye that when you fix it the original owners ghost shows up and kills you. Loved the use of the mirror to reveal the lines written on the wall and led into using the line really well.
The son was played by an adult who was kneeling, entertaining but didn't feel like it needed it.
Minor issues with the sound also but the camera work was good.
Enjoyed the film overall shame it was disqualified.
A brilliant opening to the V48 Hours Film screenings! Scary, funny, and yep, DISQUALIFIED, this well-made and thoroughly entertaining romp is just the kind of thing to expect from 10 Trucks, who I'm sure I saw years ago too! Well done for the lovingly crafted sets, the jaw-dropping special effects and thoroughly likeable characters. Keep that up!
Overheard in the audience: "omg this is actually really scary!"
This was a very good short from a talented team, It actually made one of our crew jump with fright! Was very disappointed that I couldn't vote for it. Keep up the good work, I look forward to seeing more from you
A nice ringesque ghost film that managed to be simultaneously funny and genuinely frightening in places, thanks to some solid effects work and sound cues. Doggy in the Window follows the cursed broken dog toy as it inflicts its strange brand of ghost justice (?) on its victims. The 'shining
reveal of the ghost rules at the end of the film was gold. It's a real shame this one was late, it was my favorite from the first two heats.
A fantastic short, this film was genuinely scary - I kept trying to anticipate what would happen next so that I wouldn't jump and/or scream. Very clever visual effects, and the final shot had me laughing hard. Such a pity it was disqualified, I would have given it one of my votes.
A real shame that this movie was disqualified, it was an awesome way to start the night. In the film, a dole bludger brings home a one dollar op-shop dog for his son, only to find that repairing it unleashes the vengeful ghostly spirit of it’s old owner. With over the top acting, awesome ghost effects and a killer final twist, this pitch perfect The Ring parody brings laughs throughout, along with some genuinely frightening moments. A great 48HOURS effort, these guys will be kicking themselves over being disqualified.
