“Believe it or not I was young once, too…” A girl’s walk home alone at night turns into a surreal nightmare. The Three Men You Meet at Night is a horror short film from writer / director Beck Kitsis and it’s now available to watch online after a successful festival run throughout the year. The film is about a young woman walking home alone at night after a party. She encounters three different types of men. Whom can she trust? You probably already know the answer to that question, of course… but this short makes these very-real fears even more horrifying to watch putting the viewer into the shoes of this girl. Starring Stella Baker, Barron Leung, Walker Hare, Tom Martin, Matthew Jarzyna, Emily Olcott, plus Ezra & Michael Moran. It’s an impressive short that has some moody, atmospheric cinematography to add even more unsettling tension. It’s designed to make us all understand how women live in a state of constant fear.
