Video: In Jacob Chase's horror short Larry, a bored car park attendant discovers an abandoned iPad loaded with a children's story about a lonely monster. Very, very, desperately lonely. Also in the market for a best friend. And very fond of lurking in empty car parks at three in the morning.
The story here is very simple, and there's just one setting - factors which compact this spooky encounter into a perfectly bite-sized fright. (I kept thinking of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, for obvious reasons.) The no-frills tale, augmented by eerie lighting and sound design, also benefits wonderfully from Joe Calarco's good-natured, wide-eyed performance.
