Scare Monster (2021) – Parental Nightmare

To say it’s been a while since I last sat down to do a review is an understatement of epic proportions. My output has been nothing short of pathetic. That’s not to say I haven’t been enjoying horror films… just haven’t been doing a great (or even passable) job of blogging about them. Hoping to change that and figured I’d start with this little short film that got on my radar when director Adam Harper dropped a comment.

Scare Monster (2021) is an ultra short film (3 minutes) directed by Adam Harper that shows us the story of the ‘Scare Monster’… a four year old little girl (who’s cute a button) who literally scares people to death.

I can’t say its scary. I can’t say the deaths are anything to speak of. But what I can say, as a parent, is that I had a smile on my face the entire time I watched this. Director Harper said on his FB page: “I made this short film with some friends two weeks ago. It started with us saying “let’s just make a movie for the sake of making a movie,” and it ended in this bighearted horror-comedy.” 

As you watch the film, you can tell the kids are having a blast and the ‘parents’ (I’m assuming) are along for the ride. This seems to be a nice little project that everyone involved enjoyed making. In a world full of social media where everyone is complaining ALL the time I find hope in the fact that films like this exists. It’s people making films for the sake of making films and enjoying what they’re doing.

I’d be remiss to not point out the simply awesome synth soundtrack here. Right in this 45 year old’s wheelhouse.

Give it a watch below… it’ll take you 3 minute and hopefully brighten your day.

Give the film a like and a follow and tell em ScareTissue sent you!


I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
